Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) takes the mound to save the team in greatest danger at the threshold of fall baseball.
The American professional baseball Major League (MLB) Toronto club announced Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher on the 16th for the home game against the Boston Red Sox to be held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at 2:30 a.m. on the 18th (Korean time).
Ryu Hyun-jin is attempting for the fourth time to achieve 4 wins in his 9th appearance of the season. Toronto lost four games to the Texas Rangers at home from the 12th to the 15th, falling to fourth place in the American League wild card.
Texas, which surpassed Toronto, advanced to second place in the wild card, and at the same time chased the Houston Astros, first place in the league’s Western division, by 0.5 games, gaining an advantage in participating in the postseason.
While the Tampa Bay Rays are firmly maintaining first place in the wild card, Texas and the West Division’s Seattle Mariners are taking advantage of the momentum to take second and third places, so Toronto will be in trouble if it cannot turn the tide against Boston, which has found it difficult to participate in the postseason.
In the postseason, excluding the three district winners and three teams in each league, the first to third place wild cards with the highest winning percentage will participate. Toronto is 1.5 games behind Seattle in third place in the wild card.메이저사이트
Since winning his third win over the Cleveland Guardians on the 27th of last month, Ryu Hyun-jin’s shoulders have become heavy as he has pitched relatively well in three appearances but suffered two losses due to poor batting.
However, attention is being paid to whether he will continue his upward trend in the game against Boston, as he achieved a quality start (6 innings or more and 3 earned runs or less as a starter) for the first time in the season in the game against Texas on the 13th, his previous appearance.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned a year after undergoing left elbow ligament surgery and is recording 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 2.93 this season, will reach 80 wins in his MLB career if he adds 2 wins in the remaining 3 appearances in the regular league this season, including the game against Boston. achieve Since he has allowed home runs in four consecutive games recently, he will have to avoid long hits to get closer to victory.
