Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto), who had not won since September, was eventually excluded from the roster for the American professional baseball Major League Postseason (PS) Wild Card Series.온라인카지노
Toronto announced the 26-man wild card roster ahead of Game 1 of the ‘2023 Major League’ Minnesota Twins and Wild Card Series held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA on the 4th (Korean time), but Ryu Hyun-jin’s name was not there.
Among the 26-man roster, 12 pitchers were named. The four starting pitchers were Kevin Gausman, Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, and Yusei Kikuchi. Ryu Hyun-jin, who played as a fifth starter at the end of the regular season, was eventually eliminated.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s exclusion from the PS roster was expected to some extent.
He appeared as a starter in 11 regular league games this year and recorded 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 3.46. After completing 14 months of rehabilitation from left elbow ligament ligament (Tommy John) surgery, he returned to the big leagues last August and steadily worked in the starting rotation, helping the team advance to PS.
The good momentum in August slowed down somewhat after September.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who recorded 3 wins, 1 loss, and an average ERA of 2.25 in 5 games in August, has not achieved a single win in 6 games since September, with 2 losses and an ERA of 4.50. He failed to complete 5 innings in any of the last 3 games of the regular season.
In the end, Ryu Hyun-jin, who was scheduled to make his last appearance in the regular season against Tampa Bay on September 30, switched the pitching order with his Japanese teammate Kikuchi and took the mound a day later on October 1.
In order to confirm advancement to the postseason as soon as possible, Toronto postponed the pitching order of Ryu Hyun-jin, who is weak against Tampa Bay, by a day, but it was also a decision that took Kikuchi’s PS pitching schedule into consideration.
There was also the possibility that Ryu Hyun-jin, who was eliminated from the PS selection competition early on, could play in the bullpen, but Toronto never gave him the chance.
He was on the mound as a starting pitcher in all but one of the 186 regular league games in the Major League, and he was on the mound as a professional bullpen agent rather than Ryu Hyun-jin, who appeared as a starting pitcher in all 9 PS games.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed his first free agent contract with Toronto for 4 years and $80 million ahead of the 2020 season, has a 4-year contract ending this year.
If Toronto advances to the American League Division Series, they can expect to re-enter the roster, but if they are eliminated in the Wild Card Series, they will likely say goodbye to Ryu Hyun-jin.
