Ryu Hyun-jin made his comeback in a home game against the Baltimore Orioles on August 2nd (Korea Standard Time). He took the Major League mound again 13 months and a half after Tommy John surgery, and recorded nine hits, one home run, one walk, three strikeouts, and four runs in five innings. As the team lost, it became a losing pitcher.

On this day, Ryu threw 80 pitches. He threw 33 four-seam fastball, 22 changeups, 20 curves and 5 cutters. Fastball had a maximum speed of 91 miles, and the curve fell to 69.4 miles. He seemed to be trying to take the balance of his opponents by a clear difference in ball speed. The opposing hitters swung 40 balls in the 80 air he threw, 32 of which became contacts. Nineteen batted balls were paired, 10 of which were strong with a batting speed of more than 95 miles, and 6 of 10 were flown to line drives.

He allowed a run in the early stages, but later regained stability and was able to take the mound until the sixth inning. It would have been a better game if he hadn’t hit a home run in the last game against Gunna Henderson. Ryu Hyun-jin couldn’t hide his regret over the home run after taking the mound. There were good things, such as fastball speed rising as the game progressed and curveball power revived, but it was a pity that both wings, changeups and cutters who led his success in the big leagues did not listen. The problem was that the sense of the game was still poor. On the contrary, throwing five innings even though neither pitch worked means that he is a good pitcher

Toronto previously won all three consecutive away games against the Boston Red Sox. He immediately recovered from his disappointing result with one win and three losses in four consecutive home games against Baltimore. All the starters pitched well. Alec Manoa allowed three runs in 62/3 innings, Jose Berrios allowed three runs in 52/3 innings, and Chris Basit pitched one run in seven innings. Now Ryu Hyun-jin has to continue the flow.

Bob Bissett was sidelined with a knee injury, but rookie Davis Schneider has been amazing with nine hits, two home runs and five RBIs in the past three games. Veteran Brandon Belt is also showing his presence with eight hits, two home runs and three RBIs in 21 at-bats in six games. George Springer also recorded eight hits and three RBIs in 22 at-bats in six games, signaling that he is waking up from a slump.

It is not normal power. There are a lot of injuries. Ryu Hyun-jin’s best friend Danny Jansen has been complaining of pain since he was hit by a 99-mile fastball thrown by Shintaro Fujinami on his wrist during a home game against Baltimore. First of all, I don’t think it’s a big abnormality, but the club is approaching it carefully. Alejandro Kirk may wear a catcher mask in the game. Center fielder Kevin Kiermeyer hit the fence during the sixth inning of the game the previous day and suffered a stab wound in his right elbow and sewed eight needles. I have to watch the situation every day 스포츠토토

Ryu Hyun-jin has a 2.84 ERA (19 innings and six runs) with two wins and no losses against Cleveland three times in his career. After moving to Toronto, he faced off twice. It was all in 2021. On May 29, he fought against bad weather and pitched well with four hits, two walks, six strikeouts and two runs in five innings, and the team won a big 11-2. On August 4 of the same year, he scored seven hits, eight strikeouts and two runs in seven innings against his opponent at home, leading his team to a 7-2 victory. Cleveland’s home stadium Progressive Field is another meaningful stadium for him. He pitched as a starting pitcher in the National League at the 2019 Major League All-Star Game. I will take the mound again at the stadium where good memories remain

Cleveland, which Ryu Hyun-jin will face this time, has become a completely different team compared to Cleveland in 2021. All of the hitters he has faced are Cole Calhoun, Jose Ramirez and Miles Straw. Of these, Calhoun faced in the past when he was with the Angels. The atmosphere is not good these days. He lost two consecutive games to the Houston Astros and lost three consecutive home games against the Chicago White Sox, which was the previous series, to one win and two losses. The previous day’s game collapsed in vain, giving up three runs in the ninth inning alone. With two outs and a full base, closer Immanuel Clase induced a ground ball to third base, but first baseman Calhoun did not receive a bound throw from third baseman Bryan Rocchio. In the previous day’s game, Ramirez had a fistfight with opposing shortstop Tim Anderson. There is a possibility that a number of disciplinary actions will be taken ahead of the match. Of course, if you appeal, you can appear in the game.

Oscar Gonzalez is the player with the best batting sense recently. He is 6-for-17 in five games. Andres Jimenez is also 5-for-22 with one home run and two RBIs in six games. Josh Naylor is a left-handed hitter, but he’s the one to watch out for. He is showing a strong performance this season with a batting average of 0.289 (28 hits in 97 at-bats), four home runs and 15 RBIs. Ramirez also has a batting average of only 0.219 (30 hits in 137 at-bats) against the left-hander, but he has six home runs against the left-hander

Opposition starter Gavin Williams (24) is a rookie who debuted this year. As a first-round draft pick in 2021, he is a top prospect who ranked 20th in the pre-season league’s promising ranking and 42nd in the MLB.com selection. He has successfully settled in the big leagues this season. He threw 422/3 innings in eight games with a 3.38 ERA and 0.8 home runs, 4.4 walks, 7.8 strikeouts per 1.3369 WHIP innings. He played more than five innings in six out of eight games and allowed less than three runs in six games. He blocked the Houston Astros batters, who were difficult to take the mound before, with two runs until the fifth inning.

According to “Baseball Servant,” the average batting speed percentile is 90%, the strong batting ratio is 80%, and the regular hitting ratio is 92%, showing league-class pitching. On the contrary, the strikeout ratio is 35% percentile, 11% walk, and 46% swing induction, showing an ordinary or low-ranking appearance in this area. He has a four-seam fastball (58.1%) with an average speed of 95.5 miles, a slider (20.2%) of 83.6 miles, a curve (16.5%) of 76 miles, and a changeup of 88.3 miles (5.2%)
