(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kyung-yun Kim = ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (35)’s performance, Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo laughed broadly.

Manager Montoyo said in an official press conference after winning the MLB 2-1 Cincinnati Reds at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada on the 21st (Korean time), “Hyun-Jin Ryu has recovered to his former form. He said, “My control and my ability to change balls have improved.”

On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin led the team to a 2-1 victory by pitching 6 hits and 3 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings.

He won his first win of the season in Game 4 and brought his ERA down from 9.00 to 6.00.

Direct ball restraints were also restored. Ryu Hyun-jin, who had a hard time with restraint issues at the beginning of the season, returned to the past by throwing a fastball with a maximum speed of 92.9 miles (149.5 km) and an average speed of 89.7 miles (144.4 km) on the same day.

Manager Montoyo also expressed satisfaction with Ryu Hyun-jin’s recovery from restraint.

Manager Montoyo said, “There is a difference between a fastball of 90-91 mph (144.8-146.5km) and a fastball of 88-89 mph (141.6-143.2km) that the opponent can handle. He said, “This is the reason why I emphasized that Ryu Hyun-jin’s fastball speed should be raised.”

Manager Montoyo also praised the fielders who helped Hyun-jin Ryu, saying, “Defense is one of our team’s great strengths.”

On this day, Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed a total of six hits, including five doubles, but defenders helped Ryu with a stable defense in every crisis.
