Ryu Hyun-jin (37, Toronto Blue Jays) cried at the assault batting ball.
On the 8th (Korean time), Ryu Hyun-jin started the match against the Cleveland Guardians in the ‘2023 Major League’ held at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and continued a good fight with no hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, and no runs in 4 innings. He had only 52 pitches, and his pace was so good that he only walked 1 while dealing with 13 batters, but he had to swallow regret due to an unexpected injury.안전놀이터
After checking Ryu Hyun-jin’s physical condition, the Toronto club announced that he was “substituted with a bruise on his right knee.” The big injury swept away the surprised hearts of both Ryu Hyun-jin and Toronto.
#2 wins against Cleveland, ERA 2.84… Ryu Hyun-jin, who was originally strong,
has many good memories against Cleveland. He started in all 3 games, 1 game in 2014 and 2 games in 2021, recording 2 wins, 0 losses, 19 innings, and an earned run average of 2.84. In Progressive Field, there was a good memory of winning once in 2021 and pitching 5 innings and 2 runs.
Of course, his past three appearances and the Cleveland lineup have changed. Stephen Kwan (left field) – Andres Jimenez (2nd baseman) – Jose Ramirez (3rd baseman) – Oscar Gonzalez (designated hitter) – Cole Calhoun (right fielder) – Gabriel Arias (1st baseman) – Brian Roccio (shortstop) – Miles Straw (center fielder) and Bo Naylor (catcher) were sent as starters to attack Ryu Hyun-jin.
Ryu Hyun-jin appropriately mixes the fastball (26) with a maximum speed of 90.7 miles (145.9 km) and an average speed of 88.8 miles (142.9 km), change-up (11), curve (10) and cutter (5). was The changeup had an average speed of 78.4 miles (126.1 km), and it was effective by throwing it about 10 miles away from the fastball.
Ryu Hyun-jin took the mound at the end of the first inning and showed off his good condition. While pitching mainly with a fastball formed with a maximum speed of 89.2 miles (143.5 km) and an average speed of 88.4 miles (142.3 km) in one inning, the main weapon changeup was hidden and a mixture of curves (3) and cutters (1) was thrown to see the effect.
He got off to a good start by handling the lead hitter, Kwan, with two balls as a first baseman grounder, and even the second batter, Jimenez, caught a shortstop grounder and seemed to get two outs quickly. However, the first base umpire judged that shortstop Paul Deyong’s throw was late, and gave Jimenez an infield hit in front of the shortstop.
The Toronto Bench applied for the challenge right away, even though it was one inning that was burdensome to exhaust. That’s how confident he was in overturning the judgment. As a result of the challenge, it was corrected to a shortstop grounder, and the situation changed from 1 company 1 base to 2 companies without runners.
After overcoming the hurdle of overturning the decision, a surprise hit occurred this time with Cleveland slugger Ramirez’s attacking ball. In the full count, Ryu Hyun-jin threw the 6th cutter outside of Ramirez, a right-handed hitter, to win, and Ramirez’s 99.4 mph (160 km) hit ball headed toward Ryu Hyun-jin’s body. Ryu Hyun-jin avoided serious injury by blocking it with a glove, and immediately switched to defense and threw it to first base and treated it as a ground ball. It was the moment when the tripartite crime was completed.
continued to prove his good condition by recording a tripartite offense in the 2nd inning. In the first inning, he handled all three batters as ground balls, and in the second inning, a fly ball came out in a row. Leading batsman Gonzalez threw a 90.6 mph (145.8 km) fastball as a fly ball to right field, and next batter Calhoun threw an 89.1 mile (143.4 km) fastball high to his body and treated it as a fly ball to left field.
When dealing with Arias after 2 deaths, I used the main weapon changeup that was almost sealed. With the ball count 1-0, Arias threw a bat at the second pitch changeup, and the third and fourth pitches also chose a changeup. Arias struck out three consecutive swings at Ryu Hyun-jin’s changeup, which was formed low in the outer group of the right-handed hitter. It was Ryu Hyun-jin’s first strikeout that day.
The perfect march continued in the third episode. He struck out a looking strikeout by putting a 90.7 (145.9km) fastball into his body at the ball count of 2-2 to the lead hitter Rocchio. Strikeout 2 batters in a row.
Ryu Hyun-jin continued to steal the timing of Cleveland batters by properly mixing slow changing balls such as changeups and curves, instead of a fastball restraint far below 150km. After one shot, he selected a 66.8 mile (107.5 km) curve on the third ball count from 0-2 to Straw and caught it as a floating ball in right field. After two outs, Naylor was treated as a ground ball by the second baseman, continuing a nine-hit streak.
a ball judgment that broke the pace that was good in the 4th inning and assault batted ball came out. After 1 out, when I played against Jimenez, I threw the 5th fastball well in the low area of the strike zone with a ball count of 2-2, and this ball was judged to be a ball. Even Ryu Hyun-jin’s 6th pitch cutter became a ball, and he walked on base.
Ryu Hyun-jin calmly continued pitching like a veteran. Ramirez was treated as a floating ball in right field, and he threw a first pitch changeup to Gonzalez from 2nd and 1st base. It was at this point that something happened. Gonzalez’s 97.7 mph (approximately 157.2 km) hit the ball to the inside of Hyun-jin Ryu’s right knee, and Hyun-jin Ryu endured the pain and threw it to first base until the end and treated it as a ground ball.
It seemed that the injury was not serious as the movement was natural until the throw, but Ryu Hyun-jin collapsed on the ground as soon as he finished the throw and complained of extreme pain. He had a very good pitching pace, and the number of pitches was only 52, so it was not a situation to consider replacing, but Ryu Hyun-jin could not easily send a sign that he was fine. In the end, even coach John Schneider came to the ground to check Hyun-jin Ryu’s physical condition, and he helped Hyun-jin Ryu to get out of the dugout.
In the end, Ryu Hyun-jin was replaced by bullpen Jay Jackson ahead of the defense in the bottom of the 5th inning.
