Toronto coach Ryu Hyun-jin officially announced that he will start the TB match on the 15th (Korea Standard Time)
Toronto Blue Jays Ryu Hyun-jin’s return schedule has been confirmed.
Ryu Hyun-jin will return from injury to the 2022 Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, on the 15th (Korea Standard Time).
Canadian sports media reporter Shy Davidi announced the training of Ryu Hyun-jin on his SNS on the 11th. “Ryu Hyun-jin trained for catch ball in the outfield of Yankee Stadium a few minutes ago,” he said, adding, “Ryu Hyun-jin is likely to start against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 15th.”
The reporter’s prediction became a reality. Toronto coach Charlie Montoyo revealed at a pre-match briefing with the New York Yankees on the 11th, “Ryu Hyun-jin will start against Tampa Bay on the 15th.” “Cavan Biggio and Danny Janson have started rehabilitation,” he said, adding that he has another training schedule for injured players.
He is back injured after about a month. Ryu Hyun-jin collapsed with six hits (one home run) and one strikeout and five runs in four innings against the Oakland Athletics on the 17th of last month. He was later placed on the injured list due to an arm injury. Ryu will return to the Major League in 28 days.
This season, Ryu Hyun-jin is making a poor start. He signed a four-year, $80 million free agent (FA) contract with Toronto ahead of 2020, and was a starter for the opening games in 2020 and 2021. In 2020, he showed outstanding performance enough to be nominated for the Cy Young Award.
However, from 2021, his position in the team began to be lost. The ace position was given to Robbie Ray last year. Jose Berrios, who signed an extension contract in Toronto’s uniform last year as a trade, is being treated as the first starter this year. Starting pitcher Kevin Gausman, who was recruited as an FA, is the second starter, and he is showing his Cy Young performance this year. Ryu Hyun-jin was mentioned as the third starter, Alec Manoa, who uses Ryu Hyun-jin as his role model, as the fourth starter, and Japanese starter Yusei Kikuchi as the fifth starter 토토추천
However, Ryu Hyun-jin was the first to leave the battle line. The performance was poor and the injury came. Los Stripling went into Ryu Hyun-jin’s place and went around the rotation. Stripling performance was not bad. Canadian or U.S. media have voiced concerns about Ryu Hyun-jin.
Ryu’s first task after recovering from his injury is to restore confidence. It is necessary to show good performance and a healthy body to let Toronto staff, including coach Montoyo, know that they are still alive. The return match against Tampa Bay is expected to be a criterion for Ryu Hyun-jin’s future performance.
