Toronto Blue Jays Ryu Hyun-jin takes the mound for the first time after four days of rest since returning from injury.
According to the Toronto team’s website, Ryu Hyun-jin will start in the away game against the Oakland Athletics to be held at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California on the 7th at 4:37 a.m. (Korean time). This is Ryu Hyun-jin’s seventh start of the season after returning from Tommy John surgery last month. The rotation for the three-game away game against Oakland is Jose Berrios, Chris Bassett, and Ryu Hyun-jin.
As of the 4th, Oakland recorded 42 wins and 95 losses, ranked 5th in the Western Division of the American League (AL), and is the weakest team in the major league, tied with the Kansas City Royals (42 wins, 96 losses) for last place in the entire major league. The team’s average ERA is 5.64, ranking last among 30 teams. Team batting average (0.224), team OPS (0.670), and scoring average (3.68 points) are all the lowest. The team has been racing in a chaotic atmosphere all season as fans have also turned their backs on the team as they decided to move their hometown to Las Vegas.
It does not appear to be a difficult team for Toronto, where one win is important, or for Ryu Hyun-jin, who needs spurring on his revival.
Toronto won 7 to 5 against the Colorado Rockies on this day, ending the three-game series in Denver with a win of 2 wins and 1 loss. With 75 wins and 62 losses, they maintained 3rd place in the AL East and 4th place in the Wild Card. The lead over the wild card third-place Houston Astros was narrowed to 1.5 games. Toronto must play all 25 remaining games of the season as if they were the finals.
In this situation, Ryu Hyun-jin is the ‘eldest brother’ on the mound and is properly maintaining the center of gravity.
Ryu Hyun-jin recorded 3 wins and 1 loss and an average ERA of 2.48 in 6 games. On the 8th of last month, he pitched 4 innings against the Cleveland Guardians with no hits and no runs, but was unexpectedly forced off early due to a bruised knee after being hit by a batted ball. He was only able to pitch 29 innings, but he was an ace with 8 walks, 23 strikeouts, 1.034 WHIP, and 0.213 hitting percentage. I pitched like I did.온라인바카라
In fact, Ryu Hyun-jin has been producing stable results compared to other starting pitchers since joining the rotation in August.
During the same period, Kevin Gausman had 2 wins and 3 losses in 6 games, with an ERA of 4.55, Bassett had 3 wins and 1 loss in 5 games, with an ERA of 3.03, Berrios had 1 win and 3 losses in 5 games, with an ERA of 5.53, and Yusei Kikuchi had 2 wins and 3 losses in 5 games, with an ERA of 5.53. In 6 games, he recorded 1 win, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 3.15.
In the 22 games in which these four players appeared, Toronto recorded 10 wins and 12 losses, falling below .500 in winning percentage. On the other hand, in the six games in which Ryu Hyun-jin played, Toronto had an overwhelming winning percentage of 5 wins and 1 loss. Excluding the loss in the return match on August 2nd, they are on a 5-game winning streak. It is not unreasonable to say that Ryu Hyun-jin is the most reliable starting pitcher, at least after August. The average ERA in the second half is first among the five starters.
An ace’s role as a stopper is also important, and Ryu Hyun-jin twice broke the team’s three-game losing streak. He ended his three-game losing streak by winning consecutive starts against the Chicago Cubs on August 14th (5 innings, 2 runs allowed) and against Cleveland on the 27th (5 innings, 2 runs allowed).
This game against Oakland marks Ryu Hyun-jin’s first 5-day mound of the season, and the burden of physical strength is emerging as a variable. Ryu Hyun-jin was replaced at 76 pitches after pitching well against Colorado on the 2nd, allowing 4 hits and 2 runs in 5 innings. Manager John Schneider tried to solidify the two-point lead of 4-2 by activating the bullpen, which had rested the day before, early, but the bullpen immediately turned the tables in the sixth inning, and ended up winning 13-9 after a fierce battle in the second half of the game. At the time, Coach Schneider said that he also saved Ryu Hyun-jin in consideration of this game against Oakland.
Ryu Hyun-jin recorded a total of 26 wins, 14 losses, and an ERA of 3.27 after 4 days of rest. His record is better than his start after five days of rest (34 wins, 21 losses, 3.44).
The Oakland pitcher who will face off against Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher is left-hander JP Sears. Sears, who debuted in the major leagues last year, has pitched 146⅔ innings in 27 games this season, recording 3 wins, 11 losses, an ERA of 4.36, 138 strikeouts, WHIP of 1.220, and hitting percentage of 0.249. In particular, he allowed 31 home runs, the second most in the AL after Jordan Lyles of the Kansas City Royals (34).
