Lose 13kg and see the benefits of intense rehab
It’s almost here. That means we’ll soon be able to watch Ryu Hyun-jin play at dawn five days a week. The Korean baseball scene is about to get a lot more exciting. Now it’s just a matter of coordinating the timing of his big league call-up. That is, of course, assuming that Hyun-jin Ryu’s body is in good shape going forward.
Toronto wrapped up the first half of MLB play on the 10th against the Detroit Tigers. After the All-Star break, the second half begins on 15 July. With the second half of the schedule, Hyun-jin Ryu could be the starter.
While his velocity is still lacking, his changeup and corner stuff are still there.
Ryu Hyun-jin started a home game against the Low Single-A Tampa Tarpons (affiliated with the New York Yankees) at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Florida, U.S., on Tuesday (June 10) and pitched four innings of three-hit ball, striking out one and walking none. So far, so good. He threw 37 pitches.
Ryu, who was playing for the Dunedin Blue Jays (affiliated with Toronto), got the first batter he faced, Gerard Serna, to fly out to centre field and the next batter, Jesus Rodriguez, to fly out to right field. He then gave up a double to Ben Rice in left field, but the defence threw him out at third to end the inning. In the second, he struck out Omar Martinez, Brennie Escarnio and Dauri Arias for a triple play. In the third, he retired all three batters on grounders.바카라사이트
In the fourth inning, he showed off his crisis management skills. Ryu induced a grounder to third that allowed Serna to advance to first on a fielding error, but he got Rodriguez to ground into a shortstop-second baseman-first baseman double play with the bases loaded.
Ryu then gave up back-to-back singles to Rice and Martinez to put runners on first and second again, but he struck out Escarnio to end the inning. It’s been about 13 months since Ryu last pitched more than four innings in a live game on 2 June against the Chicago White Sox.
After undergoing elbow ligament reconstruction surgery (Tommy John surgery) in June last year, Ryu focused on rehabilitation, pitching out of the bullpen in May this year, live pitching last month, and finally pitching in a minor league rookie league game on 5 June.
In that outing, Ryu threw 42 pitches in three innings, allowing four runs on four hits with five strikeouts. After four days of rest, Ryu immediately pitched in a high Single-A game to check his health.
