Korean Monster Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) played in an official game for the first time after surgery on his left elbow. Local media responded positively to Ryu Hyun-jin’s first appearance.

Ryu Hyun-jin started the game against FCL Tigers, a minor league rookie team under the Detroit Tigers, at the spring camp training facility in Toronto, Florida on the 5th (Korea Standard Time).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who has 75 wins, 45 losses, 안전토토사이트 and a 3.27 ERA in 175 Major League games (1003⅓) innings), left a poor performance with two wins and a 5.67 ERA in six games (27 innings) last year. In the end, he failed to take the big league mound after taking the mound on June 2 last year while undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who took the mound after 398 days, focused on checking his condition rather than his performance. He allowed one run (four hits and five strikeouts) in three innings, but did not give up a single walk.

Toronto’s local media “Toronto Sun” said, “Veteran Ryu Hyun-jin pitched three innings and allowed only four hits without a walk, while striking out five in his first game since June last year and allowing one run.” “Ryu Hyun-jin, who marks the last year of his four-year contract with Toronto, worked hard to return before and after the All-Star break,” he added.

The Toronto Sun also reported, “The fact that Ryu Hyun-jin was able to pitch effectively by throwing three innings suggests that his elbow condition and the number of pitches are being managed smoothly.”

He also said, “Just as it is important not to overreact to Alec Manoa’s unstable start in the Rookie League, it is not right to put too much meaning on Ryu Hyun-jin’s first appearance without injury,” adding, “It means that Ryu Hyun-jin, who started Toronto’s opening game in 2020 and 2021, will go in the right direction.”

The media predicted, “If Ryu Hyun-jin continues the current trend, there is still a possibility of returning to the big leagues at the end of this month and it will be a great help to Toronto’s weak mound department.”
