Foreign media are worried about Ryu Hyun-jin’s surgery as he cannot guarantee his return next year


Foreign media expressed concern over the sudden surgery of “Blue Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (35, Toronto Blue Jays)., the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on the 15th (Korea Standard Time) that “Ryu Hyun-jin will undergo surgery to rebuild the inner ligament of his left elbow.” The surgery is expected to be one of the surgeries to completely rebuild the ligaments or reconstruct parts of the damaged area.

Ryu Hyun-jin had a 5.67 ERA in six games this year, his third year in Toronto. At the beginning of the season, there were many difficulties due to sluggishness and large and small injuries caused by reduced speed. He was on the injured list after complaining of pain in his left forearm after the match against Oakland on April 17, and returned to Tampa Bay on May 15, but after feeling elbow tension in the match against the Los Angeles Angels on May 27, he endured pain and eventually got sick.

“We thought it would be best for Ryu Hyun-jin to undergo surgery,” Toronto’s Los Atkins said. “He is very disappointed at the moment. He wants to return as soon as possible and compete again. He is a professional and strong man. But I know it’s difficult to return soon,” he explained the background of the surgery.

As Ryu Hyun-jin’s surgery for the “80 million dollar man” has been decided, foreign media are also reporting it as a major issue. Japan’s “Sports Hochi” said, “Toronto left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin decided to undergo surgery on his left elbow, and his return this season was in despair. If he undergoes Tommy John surgery, which requires one year to return, he cannot guarantee his return next season when his four-year contract expires,” he expressed concern.

Canadian media CBC also expressed a negative view on its return next year. The media said, “Depending on the type of surgery, Ryu Hyun-jin may not be able to return next year, the last year of his FA contract with Toronto. “Tomizone surgery takes up to 24 months to rehabilitate 토토사이트

The U.S. “MLB Trade Rumours” dismissed the possibility of returning next year. It was a view that the relationship between Ryu Hyun-jin and Toronto could no longer last. The media said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s future schedule will be known after undergoing surgery, but he may have already pitched his last pitch in a Toronto uniform. If he undergoes complete elbow reconstruction surgery, he can miss the entire 2023 season,” he said.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who qualified for the FA after the 2019 season, signed a four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto. With the contract expiring in 2023, it remains to be seen how the current surgery will end
