Ryu Hyun-jin is about to finally return to the big league after getting out of a long injury tunnel. After successful pitching in rehabilitation, the only thing left to do is to stand on the stage of dreams.무지개벳
He made four rehab appearances. Ryu Hyun-jin started with 42 pitches and 88 miles per hour (141.6 km) in the Minor League Rookie League on the 5th, 37 pitches, 88.4 miles (142.3 km) in Low Single A on the 10th, and 66 pitches, 89.8 miles (144.5 km) in Triple A on the 16th. Then, on the 22nd, he took the mound against the Syracuse Mets affiliated with the Triple-A New York Mets and pitched 3 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings. He threw 85 pitches and reached a maximum speed of 146.1 km.
He hit only three home runs in 18 innings of actual games, but only walked one. As the team raised the number of pitches and velocity that the club wanted, Hyun-jin Ryu took one step closer to returning to the big leagues.
And on the 25th, he will accompany the Los Angeles Dodgers expedition. The timing of his return to the big leagues has not been confirmed, but the club wants to directly check Ryu Hyun-jin’s condition.
If there is no sign that it is okay, there is a possibility that Ryu Hyun-jin will play against the Los Angeles Angels on the 29th and 31st. Then he might be able to meet up with ‘Didoryu’ Shohei Otani.
Toronto’s mound is full of hope. The 6 starting system that Toronto coach John Schneider wants is possible.
In addition to this, Manoa, who showed anxiety, also played a good fight. Before the game, the Jace Journal said, “As Ryu Hyun-jin is scheduled to rejoin the team in a few days, Manoa needs an impact to take the Toronto starting lineup to the next level. So, today will be an important start for Manoa.”
Fortunately, I got a passing grade. Manoa gave up only three hits in 5⅓ innings that day. Although he missed 4 walks, he struck out 6 and showed good pitching. However, unfortunately, he did not become a winning pitcher as he went down in a 2-2 situation.
In the previous match, against San Diego on the 19th, it made up for the sluggishness of 3 innings and 4 runs.
Including this game, Manoa pitched in 16 games this season and recorded 2 wins, 8 losses and an ERA of 6.10 in 72⅓ innings.
Even locals breathed a sigh of relief.
After the game, Bluebird Banter, the Toronto fan page of the US’SB Nation’, commented, “We got what we expected from Manoa. Unfortunately, one of the three hits was a home run. But overall, Manoa pitched well.”
