Overcoming two surgeries + special pitching sequence… Local media are also enthusiastic about Ryu Hyun-jin’s narrative

Successful comeback and promotion of a veteran pitcher who underwent surgery and spent over a year in rehabilitation. even the second Wouldn’t it be the same as any community sending a passionate gaze to this kind of narrative? U.S. media, clubs, and baseball fans are pouring praise for Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), who won his second win. 

Ryu Hyun-jin started in the 2023 Major League (MLB) away game against the Cincinnati Reds held at Great America Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 21st (Korean time) and fought hard with 4 hits, 1 walk and 2 runs (no runs) in 5 innings. He led Toronto to a 10-3 victory and became the winning pitcher. On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin defeated Joey Boto, the league’s representative “on-base machine,” and divine infielder Eli de la Cruz with a low-speed curve of only 105 to 7 km/h, as well as a changeup and cut fastball (cutter) as his main weapon. 

Opponent pitcher Hunter Green is a pitcher who throws a fastball that can reach 100 mph. As the young fireballer, a symbol of strength and ambition, collapsed with 10 hits and 9 runs in 3 innings, Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching, which showed dignity with his ability to ‘quickly control’, stood out more. 

On this day, the Toronto club’s official social media (SNS) posted the Korean phrase “Ryu Hyun-jin form is crazy.” It is a reference to a new expression on the Internet by domestic sports fans towards players who are at the peak of their performance. 

On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-seam fastball (fastball) was never recorded more than 90 miles (144.8 km/h). However, he showed a powerful pitch with a combination of breaking balls and accurate control, such as striking out looking inside with a fastball in a crisis. 

Regarding this, the Canadian media ‘Toronto Star’ said, “With an effective pitch combination, he broke the balance of hitters. I was able to catch strikes with all the pitches I threw,” evaluated Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching that day. MLB.com also said, “Ryu Hyun-jin didn’t throw the ball fast enough to exclaim, but he shows a clever pitch. He knows the hitter’s willingness to swing. Aggressive batters are bound to have difficulty with Ryu Hyun-jin. Ryu Hyun-jin said, “He showed how much skill he is in the game against Cincinnati.” Reporter Charlie Goldsmith of the Enquirer, a local Cincinnati magazine he faced that day, said, “I overpowered Cincinnati hitters with a 70-mile curveball.” 

Ryu Hyun-jin spent a rehabilitation period in which his return was unclear due to shoulder surgery he received in 2015. However, he climbed the mound again, and with a new weapon cutter, he rose to the top of the league pitcher, including the first place in earned run average (2.32 in the 2019 season), starting in the All-Star Game, and being selected as the final 3 player in the Cy Young Award. His elbow injury last season put him on the operating table once again, but he showed a healthy appearance again. His elbow had already been stabbed twice before. Ryu Hyun-jin stood up again. 스포츠토토

Canadian media ‘Sports Net’ also conveyed the justification for Ryu Hyun-jin’s contract extension, which ends with a 4-year contract this season, through a radio broadcast. He expressed his opinion that a one-year or two-year contract with an option would be reasonable. 

His ability to control hitters with a relatively slow ball and the experience he gained by overcoming two long gaps only after advancing to the MLB. Ryu Hyun-jin is also a special player in the MLB. Domestic baseball fans are sleeping at night again.
