5→4→5→5→5→5 innings… Ryu Hyun-jin, reborn as ‘TRUST RYU’


Steady. They are going through their innings consistently, as if they had kissed in advance. Excluding the game in which he was substituted after being hit by a batted ball, he played 5 innings in all 5 games. It’s not because I’m anxious. He was replaced with a big picture in mind, and laid a stepping stone for the team’s victory. ‘TRUST RYU!’ He is performing stably enough to be trusted. 바카라

Ryu Hyun-jin (36), the ‘Korean Monster’ of the Toronto Blue Jays of the American Professional Baseball Major League, has made a perfect comeback. Although he was unable to stand on the big league mound for a year and two months due to an injury, he once again demonstrated his unrivaled skills. Local media and experts are gawking at the power of a veteran in his mid-30s who has been on the operating table twice.

He struggled in his return match against the Baltimore Orioles on the 2nd of last month (Korean time). At the beginning of the game, he was shaken by consecutive hits and gave up runs, and was unable to get over the hump in the 6th inning, allowing a home run and collapsing. He became the losing pitcher (Toronto lost 3-13), allowing 4 runs in 5 innings.

Six days later, he started in a game against the Cleveland Guardians, but was upset by his bad luck. He did not have a single hit until the 4th inning and pitched a no-hitter. However, he fell after being hit in the knee by a batted ball and was substituted out. He showed his fighting spirit and counted out, but he could not throw any more. He couldn’t smile even after his team’s 3-1 win.

Afterwards, as promised, he pitched 5 good innings and won 3 games in a row. On August 14th, against the Chicago Cubs, he allowed 2 runs (unearned) in 5 innings, leading Toronto to an 11-4 victory. In the game against the Cincinnati Reds on August 21, he played a key role in the 10-3 victory, allowing 2 runs (unearned) in 5 innings. Then, on August 27th, he met Cleveland again and contributed greatly to an 8-3 victory by allowing 2 runs in 5 innings, and recorded his 3rd win of the season.

The upward trend continued at Coors Field, the ‘graveyard of pitchers’. He gave up one home run, but allowed two runs in five innings. He met the requirements for a winning pitcher and handed over the mound, but left a mark with the bullpen arson. Still, Toronto contributed greatly to winning 13-9. In the United States, there was praise, saying, ‘It’s as good a pitch as 7 innings without giving up a run at any other stadium.’ 

After returning to the big leagues, he played 6 games. He ate up 29 innings, recording 3 wins, 1 loss, and an ERA of 2.48. He is evaluated as a ‘returning ace’ for his amazing game management, blade control, and skillful ball mixing. A reliable starting pitcher who can pitch 5 innings with around 80 pitches. This is ‘TRUST RYU’ Ryu Hyun-jin. 

Toronto is operating a ‘calculating’ starting rotation with the addition of Ryu Hyun-jin. On days when Ryu Hyun-jin takes the mound, he takes responsibility for five innings without fail and utilizes the bullpen. ‘Reliable starter’ Ryu Hyun-jin is a great help to the team that is fighting hard for the rankings to advance to the fall banquet at the end of the season.
