Long-Hitting Task Faces Ryu Hyun-jin and Otani Trout

Long-Hitting Task Faces Ryu Hyun-jin and Otani Trout


Ryu Hyun-jin (35, Toronto), who announced his revival after winning his first victory, will meet the slugger.

Ryu Hyun-jin started against Cincinnati in the 2022 Major League Baseball (MLB) at Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada on the 21st (Korea Standard Time) and won his first victory of the season with six innings of six hits, three strikeouts and no runs.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who pitched well in his second appearance following his first appearance on the injured list (one run in 4.1 innings against Tampa Bay), is finding the trust he lost. Regarding Ryu Hyun-jin, who harvested his first victory against Cincinnati, head coach Montoyo couldn’t hide his satisfied expression, saying, “Ryu Hyun-jin, who we knew, is back.”

The ERA, which soared to the 10-point range due to the worst slump at the beginning of the season, also fell to the 6-point range. He was arrested and his main weapon change-up became sharper. Expectations are growing that it will be a great help for Toronto, which is dreaming of advancing to the World Series.

It is difficult to say ‘complete Ryu Hyun-jin’ with pitching at this level. Cincinnati, the previous opponent, is the weakest in winning percentage and team batting average.

Expectations are high for Ryu Hyun-jin, who topped the Cy Young Award by ranking first in MLB ERA. Even if it is not as good as it was in its heyday, it should play a role in supporting the one-two punch in Toronto, which aims to win more than the Earth.

It is also necessary to show excellent pitching against a team that can be met in the postseason. In this regard, the Los Angeles Angels (second place in the AL West), which will face on the 27th, is a suitable test stage.

Currently, Ryu Hyun-jin’s next schedule is likely to play against the Los Angeles Angels on the 27th. The Angels are as powerful as the Cincinnati Reds. He is tied for first place with the New York Mets with 59 team home runs. In the AL, he ranks first with a team batting average of 0.247 and a team OPS of 0.744.

He is a very uncomfortable opponent for Ryu Hyun-jin, who allowed long hits so many times that five of the six hits against Cincinnati were doubles. There are many tricky hitters such as Mike Trout, former MVP, Otani Shohei, Taylor Ward, and Anthony Landon. In the match against Cincinnati, he did not lose a point with his unique crisis management skills even after being hit by five doubles, but it may not work against the Angels’ batters who have no batters to rest 파워볼게임

This is an important test for Ryu Hyun-jin to make a solid rebound this season
