Will Ryu Hyun-jin and the Toronto Blue Jays’ partnership end this year? It looks like Ryu Hyun-jin, who has returned, will not be able to stand on the postseason stage.온라인바카라
Ryu Hyun-jin started on the mound in the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Tampa Bay Rays held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 1st (Korean time) and recorded 7 hits, 1 strikeout, and 2 runs in 3 innings. The last chance to hunt for a multiplier was missed.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned after recovering from elbow surgery, pitched only the shortest innings since his return and was demoted. His velocity reached a maximum of 90.8 miles (approximately 146 km), up from the highest four-seam velocity of 89.4 miles (143.9 km) recorded during an expedition to Tampa Bay on the 24th of last month, but breaking balls such as change-ups did not work.
However, he is not a pitcher with a problem with ball control. Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned to action on the 2nd after being on the operating table after throwing 6 games last year, showed that he is in good health. In his return game, he took the loss against Baltimore, allowing 4 runs in 5 innings, but found his pace.
On August 14th, his third appearance, he became the winning pitcher against the Chicago Cubs by allowing 2 runs in 5 innings. Since then, they have accumulated wins in three consecutive games, including an away game against Cincinnati on the 21st and a game against Cleveland on the 27th.
Although he failed to add a win in the last six games, he also erased concerns about a decrease in velocity in the final game. His strength, his ball control, is still alive. However, it is expected that he will not be included in Toronto’s fall festival.
MLB.com predicted Toronto’s fall roster. On the mound, it was expected that the starting lineup would include Kevin Gausman, Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, and Yusei Kikuchi. In the bullpen, we looked at the list of Jordan Romano, Jordan Hicks, Eric Swanson, Tim Mayza, Imi Garcia, Chad Green, Genesis Cabrera, and Trevor Richards.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s name was not there. MLB.com said, “It is difficult to imagine Ryu Hyun-jin as the fifth starter.” First of all, Toronto is expected to feature ‘Ace’ Gausman in the first wild card game. MLB.com predicted, “Bassett and Berrios are likely to come after them.” Of course, nothing has been decided yet.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned this year, was the 5th starter, but there is no need to be the 5th starter in the fall stage.
Toronto gave Ryu Hyun-jin a quick start the day before and lost 5-7 in overtime, failing to erase the magic number to advance to the postseason on his own. However, as Texas defeated Seattle, the remaining magic number 1 disappeared. At the same time, Toronto was able to take the last train to the fall stage through a wild card.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-year contract with Toronto worth a total of $80 million (about 107.2 billion won) ends at the end of this season. There is growing interest in whether he will enter the free agent market again and wear a different uniform next season. Among them, the possibility of Ryu Hyun-jin being excluded from Toronto’s postseason roster was mentioned, hinting at a breakup.
Ryu Hyun-jin spent six seasons with the Dodgers and achieved a record of 54 wins, 33 losses, and an ERA of 2.98. Although he was expected to be the number one starter wearing a Toronto uniform, it looks like his run is coming to an end. Ryu Hyun-jin recorded 24 wins, 15 losses, and an ERA of 3.97 over four seasons in Toronto.
