Hyunjin Ryu wins his first appearance in the second half… 7 innings shutout season ninth win
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Shin Chang-yong = Local media also praised Ryu Hyun-jin (34, Toronto Blue Jays), who announced a perfect revival with his third shutout victory.
MLB.com, the official Major League Baseball (MLB) site, highlighted Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching on the 19th (Korean time) saying, “Ryu Hyun-jin started the second half in his prime.”
Ryu Hyun-jin started in the first game of the doubleheader against the Texas Rangers on the same day and pitched three hits in seven innings without a score in a 5-0 shutout victory.
It is his third shutout win in his career and the first since moving to Toronto last year. Ryu Hyun-jin, who finished his first start in the second half of the season happily, harvested his 9th win (5 losses) of the season.
MLB.com said, “In fact, Ryu Hyun-jin was incredibly effective in his last appearance at Sailon Field.” He said, “After organizing the first inning with four balls, the number of pitches up to the seventh was only 83.
“This is an encouraging result for Toronto, who will have to run in the American League Eastern Division and American League Wild Card races,” he said. “We will be able to build momentum ahead of the Rogers Center return on the 31st.”
Toronto, who lived a wandering life in the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), will return to their home stadium, the Rogers Center, from the Kansas City Royals on the 31st.
MLB.com said, “Toronto has a lot of areas that need to be reinforced with trades, such as the bullpen, but it’s nowhere near as good as the most elite. This includes Ryu Hyun-jin at his best.”
He continued, “Hyun-Jin Ryu has been jagged lately. In six starts from June 5 to July 2, he had a low ERA of 5.35.” The changeup was fantastic.”
Ryu Hyun-jin explained that this was because, after analyzing the problem with pitching coach Pete Walker, he discovered that the angle of the arm was lowered when throwing the changeup, and he compensated for this.
MLB.com said, “Hyun-Jin Ryu seems to have recovered his stability. Robbie Ray, who supports him, is having an amazing season. Toronto, who has one-two punches, will need to reinforce their starting line to get better results, but it is comforting to see Hyun-Jin Ryu back to his prime. It’s because a pitcher like Hyun-Jin Ryu at his best is not readily available in the market.”
