“Ryu Hyun-jin looked good.”
With the return of Ryu Hyun-jin,안전놀이터 the Toronto Blue Jays began to solidify their American League wild card ticket. With two recent wins in a row, he has 67 wins and 54 losses, and is third in the American League wild card. He was right in the cut-off line. They are two games ahead of the fourth-place Seattle Mariners.
It is still difficult to confirm Toronto’s advance to the postseason. This is because the race still has about a month and a half left. Ryu Hyun-jin, who will pitch for about nine games, is very important. After his return, Ryu Hyun-jin played 3 games with an average ERA of 2.57. Compliance with WHIP 1.07 and hit rate 0.220.
Although he has not yet made a quality start, he has already pitched 6 innings in the minor league rehab and returned to the major leagues, but he can always expect in the remaining 9 games. On the 14th (hereinafter Korean time), he won a victory against the Chicago Cubs after 444 days. He surpassed Cody Bellinger, his teammate with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The next appearance is an away game against the Cincinnati Reds, which will be held at 2:40 on the 21st (hereafter Korean time). ‘Monster rookie’ Ellie de la Cruz (21) awaits. De la Cruz is considered a rookie who will bomb the major leagues with monstrous athleticism. The throw, which had already been thrown from the infield to home, recorded 161 km/h. An interesting confrontation with Ryu Hyun-jin is expected.
Is it the effect of Ryu Hyun-jin’s comeback? On the 16th, Bleacher Report updated the rankings of major league starting pitchers. The first is the Philadelphia Phillies, and the second is the Texas Rangers with Max Scherzer. 3rd is Toronto. Bleacher Report put Jose Berrios and Chris Bassett as the 2nd and 3rd starters, following ace Kevin Gaussman. Ryu Hyun-jin is the 4th starter. The 5th pick is Yusei Kikuchi. Alec Manoa recently went back to the minor leagues.
The actual Toronto starting lineup is pretty stable. His starting ERA of 3.78 is third in the American League. The number of innings pitched by starting pitchers is 663.2, which is 5th in the American League. His batting average is 0.244, 5th in the American League, and his WHIP is 1.26, 8th. The record shows that the crisis management ability is better than sending out runners. The number of strikeouts by a starting pitcher is 685, which is second in the American League.
Gaussman is at the top of the American League Cy Young race with his excellent strikeout ability. Berrios also has a sense of stability this season, unlike last year. Bassett and Ryu Hyun-jin, who have good off-speed pitches, are also competitive with their own 3-4 starters. With Kikuchi’s rebound, concerns about the 5th selection disappeared.
“Toronto’s starting lineup continues to improve,” said Bleacher Report. He had a 3.98 earned run average in the first half, but dropped to 3.25 in the second half. It’s fair to say that Gaussman is underrated. Berrios, Bassit and Kikuchi are also above average. Ryu Hyun-jin has just returned from Tommy John surgery, but looks good with 4 earned runs in 14 innings in 3 starts. He can be a nightmare matchup for opponents in the postseason.”
