Ryu Hyun-jin failed to return in July… play simulation game

‘A little more certain!’

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is expected to return to the Major League (MLB) later than expected. On the 25th, MLB.com said, “Ryu Hyun-jin will not pitch against the Los Angeles Angels this weekend. He is scheduled to appear in a simulation game once.” The simulation game will be conducted in an atmosphere similar to the actual game. The batters they face seem to be at a higher level than Triple A. It was difficult to return within July, which was originally planned.바카라사이트

Ryu Hyun-jin underwent elbow ligament joint surgery in June last year. He has since been in rehab. His comeback clock started ticking. He went through bullpen pitching in May and live pitching in June, and started playing in earnest from the beginning of this month. He started with the rookie league and advanced to single-A, triple-A, and so on. In his most recent appearance, the 22nd against the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons, he threw 85 balls in 6 innings. He was also more mature in terms of pitch. He raised the maximum speed of the fastball to 90.8 miles per hour (about 146 km).

He seemed to be getting closer to being on the big league mound. Ryu Hyun-jin joined the team ahead of three consecutive away games against the Los Angeles Dodgers starting on the 25th. MLB.com said, “Toronto wants to see Ryu Hyun-jin in person.” He looked like he could start as early as three straight games (29–31) against the Los Angeles Angels. Some local media predicted that Ryu Hyun-jin would be the starting pitcher against the Angels on the 29th. Coincidentally, Shohei Ohtani (29) is likely to be the starting pitcher for the Angels on this day. There was a lot of interest in the match between Korea and Japan.

It’s not particularly problematic. Ben Nicholson-Smith, Major League Wall reporter for Sportsnet, analyzed the reasons based on his views. First of all, it can be a bit burdensome to face Ohtani even before returning. Moreover, Toronto has a 17-game hell schedule ahead of it. It is judged that putting it in at this time will be more effective for rotation operation. In addition, the MLB trade closes on the 2nd of next month. As the 40-man roster needs to be sorted out for a comeback, there is a possibility that it was decided after that.
