Rave reviews, surprising praise for RYU “Sly pitching, perfect for Toronto”

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is also a veteran now. A year after undergoing elbow surgery, he returned to the mound six days after being hit in the knee again during a game and pitched a complete game victory.

The Toronto Star, a Canadian media outlet, said on Thursday (KST), “It’s amazing. Ryu gave Toronto exactly what it needed with a very sneaky pitch,” the Toronto Star reported.

Ryu started the game against the Chicago Cubs in the 2023 Major League Baseball World Series at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada. Ryu threw five innings of two-run (unearned) ball. Toronto won 11-4, giving Ryu his first win of the season (1-1).

According to the Toronto Star, “Pitchers who undergo Tommy John surgery usually return to the mound after 12 months, but they don’t get close to 100 percent until 18 months. This is not good news for Ryu. Ryu’s number one goal was to get back into the rotation and prove that he can still contribute to the team.

Ryu went under the knife last June. Despite not being in perfect shape, he had to prove his worth to the world. His contract with Toronto ends after this season. He needs to sign a new contract.

The Toronto Star said, “There were scenarios where Ryu’s return could have been a little messy, but so far it’s been perfect. Ryu has pitched better than expected. His velocity is still slow, but it’s looking pretty good.

Toronto manager John Schneider said, “It’s amazing. He didn’t give up any runs, which is amazing for a guy his age. It’s not easy to do that,” Schneider said.

Ryu also expressed his satisfaction.

“Honestly, I’m very happy. It’s what I’ve been hoping for since my surgery. If I can lay the foundation for the team to win in addition to my personal victory, I’m happy with that.”먹튀검증

Even more positive is that he’s likely to get even better in the future.

“Ryu was up to 91 mph,” Schneider said. He knows where his ball is going. He knows how to mix pitches. If he can get his velocity back from here, even better.”
