Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is starting to move toward the final stage of his long rehabilitation.

Toronto general manager Ross Atkins explained in an interview with local media on the 16th (Korean time), “Ryu Hyun-jin and Chad Green will throw the ball against hitters next month in real life.”

Hyunjin Ryu and Green are both ‘injured soldiers’ who have undergone elbow surgery. Both players are currently rehabilitating in Dunedin, Florida, where they have spring camp facilities in Toronto. General manager Atkins visited Dunedin last week and observed the rehabilitation process of the two pitchers with his own eyes, and reported the results to the media.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed a four-year contract with Toronto as a free agent (FA) in 2020, had concerns about injuries from the beginning of last year’s season and eventually went to the operating table in June. Second elbow ligament replacement surgery in my personal career. After the season, he immediately focused on recovery and rehabilitation. This winter, too, he headed to the United States one step ahead for his rehabilitation. He has gone through a rehab process, starting with catch and pitching in the bullpen. When he left Korea at the beginning of the year, he revealed his goal of returning in July. With the deadline approaching little by little, pitches for actual combat finally came out of the mouth of the leadership. If he can stand on the mound, it will be his achievement after about a year after surgery.

MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball (MLB), predicted that the Toronto team would more clearly estimate the return time of the two pitchers after Ryu Hyun-jin and Green’s first actual appearance.

If Ryu Hyun-jin joins, Toronto can also get the joker card of the starting lineup at the end of the season. As of the 15th, Toronto is in third place in the American League East Division with 24 wins and 16 losses. In terms of win rate, MLB’s top-tier or strong teams are concentrated in the eastern district, making it difficult to regain the top spot in the district.

The most wins in the current Toronto starting lineup without Ryu Hyun-jin are five wins recorded by Japanese left-handed pitcher Yusei Kikuchi and right-handed pitcher Chris Bassitt, who was recruited as a free agent. Jose Berrios (3 wins체스카지노), who signed an extended contract after the trade, and Kevin Gausman (2 wins), who was in his second year as a free agent, were sluggish or had no success. Last year’s ace, Alec Manoa, well-known as Ryu Hyun-jin’s ‘Hope’, is sluggish with 1 win and 3 losses and an average ERA of 5.36.

It is difficult for Ryu Hyun-jin to squeeze in, but from the standpoint of Toronto, Ryu Hyun-jin can be a card for reversing the atmosphere in the last-minute ranking fight in the second half.

Ryu Hyun-jin also needs a quick and perfect comeback. As the contract with Toronto is the last year, you have to show your returned skills to be able to challenge to remain in the MLB.
