Toronto coach Ryu Hyun-jin, who was injured is also in love with the soaring value of FA
Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo, who forgot Ryu Hyun-jin (35), fell in love with his replacement Ross Stripling (33).
Stripling started against the Detroit Tigers on the 13th (Korea Standard Time) and led Toronto to a 6-0 complete victory with one hit, four strikeouts and no runs in six innings. The only hit in the third inning by Robbie Grossman was on base. It showed the highest efficiency of blocking six innings with 74 balls. He pitched with breaking balls such as changeups, sliders and knuckle curves rather than four-seam fastballs of 93.3 miles (150.2 kilometers).
Stripling, who entered the rotation as an alternative pitcher after Ryu Hyun-jin’s injury, won the game against the Kansas City Royals on the 7th with one hit, two strikeouts and no runs in five innings. Earlier on the 2nd, when Ryu Hyun-jin was substituted early in 4 innings due to injury, he also won a relief victory with 3 hits in 2 innings and 2 strikeouts and no runs in 2 He has won three games in the last three games and is on a scoreless march in 13 innings.
Even manager Montoyo, who was full of worries due to Ryu Hyun-jin’s recurrence of injury, cannot help but look pretty. According to local media such as “MLB.com,” coach Montoyo said after winning against Detroit, “Striping is doing really well. Every time he takes the mound, he gives us a chance to win.”
Montoyo then said, “Stripling will continue to start. “We’re at the height of our team,” he praised, adding, “We’re throwing every ball with a strike and shaking the balance of the batters. Even if it’s not overwhelming, it’s fun to watch,” he repeatedly praised.
Regarding Ryu’s future schedule, Montoyo said, “We are far away. I’m not saying he’s done, I’m saying he’s still a long way off. I don’t even think about that right now,” he said, treating it as a de facto power source. The coach, who always has to assume the worst situation, cannot be optimistic. It is a cold but inevitable reality.
Stripling, a close relationship with Ryu Hyun-jin since his time with the LA Dodgers, is also an opportunity for me personally. It is time to amplify the value for him who will be eligible for FA at the end of this season. In the meantime, he has been recognized as a swing man who goes back and forth between starting and saving, but now he is showing his potential as a main starter. He pitched 43 innings in 15 games this season, with a 3.14 ERA for three wins, one loss, and one save, and in seven games as a starter, his ERA will fall to 2.81 안전놀이터
Stripling said, “Now I’m more used to starting than the bullpen. He has been selected before and knows how to deal with the batting order when it goes around two to three laps. I will maintain my routine and continue my balance and competitiveness. I don’t want to go after Cy Young all of a sudden,” he said. If you continue your good pace to the end of the season, you can start the FA market and get a lot of money. Ryu Hyun-jin’s injury is an opportunity for Stripling. It’s an ironic fate between close friends
