Major League Baseball Toronto Ryu Hyun-jin. yunhap news
Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays in the major leagues has always been regarded as a pleasant and fun fellow player since he entered the US stage.
In the dugout during the Los Angeles Dodgers, the appearance of joking around with Juan Yuribe and Jasiel Puig happily caught the attention of baseball fans.
Ryu Hyun-jin is also in Toronto, who has joined since last year, wearing the modifier as a good fellow.
Furthermore, his top-notch skills in recent years have made him the object of envy among his colleagues.
Toronto pitcher Trent Thornton told the Canadian press Toronto Line on the 20th (Korean time), “I enjoy hanging out with Hyun-jin Ryu. He has a good sense of humor and we joke often. We eat a lot of food. I start learning Korean little by little.” And he also speaks English quite well,” he said.
Thornton said that Ryu Hyun-jin is a friendly and comfortable companion. This is the evaluation I heard from colleagues since Ryu Hyun-jin first joined the Toronto Spring Camp last year. It is a role model that can be seen and learned, especially for young pitchers.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who was recognized as a top pitcher, ranked 2nd in the 2019 National League Cy Young Vote and 3rd in the 2020 American League Cy Young Vote. Hyunjin Ryu is also active in transferring know-how.
Thornton said, “Ryu Hyun-jin works hard on anything. He is closely watching what he prepares between his routine and starting day. He is very detailed and specifically preparing for the game, including analysis of the opponent’s hitters,” he said.
On the other hand, Ryu Hyun-jin will start against the Boston Red Sox on the morning of the 21st Korean time and challenge to win the second season.
Initially, Ryu Hyun-jin was expected to appear in the game against the Kansas City Royals on the 19th, but the starting rotation was adjusted as a rainy weather cancellation game occurred before that. Toronto decided to give Ryu Hyun-jin an extra day off.
Coach Pete Walker said that the more rest days, the better Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching content, and that he plans to give additional rest days whenever there is a chance.
