The news of the rehabilitation of Toronto Blue Jays Ryu Hyun-jin was delivered after a long time.
On the 21st (Korean time), MLB.com posted an interview with Ryu Hyun-jin in Dunedin, Florida, where Toronto’s spring training camp was set up.
Ryu Hyun-jin underwent left elbow surgery, or Tommy John Surgery, in June of last year. While rehabilitation has been going on for 9 months, Ryu Hyun-jin showed confidence in returning to the target in July.
Reporter Keegan Mathison, who wrote the article, said, “It’s been three years since Toronto introduced a stoner named Ryu Hyun-jin back to the league.” I escaped the shock of 95 losses. At that time, Ryu Hyun-jin taught young players how to survive, enjoyed victory together, and led the necessary process for the team.”
It explains that Toronto has risen to the position of competing with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox in the American League Eastern District by laying the foundation for a leap forward with Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed a free agency contract for $80 million in 4 years in December 2019.
Ryu Hyun-jin appeared in 12 games in 2020카지노사이트, the first season of his contract, and played an ace role by raising an earned run average of 2.69. He was an impregnable 1 starter until the first half of 2021 as well. However, it was a series of hardships from then until he underwent elbow surgery last year. During this period, he started 20 games and posted an earned run average of 5.55.
Ryu Hyun-jin, whose contract is the last season this year, aims to return in the second half. “My goal is to prepare myself for my ideal return in mid-July,” he said. I hope I can play in October.”
Reporter Mathison said, ‘Ryu Hyun-jin is now spurring rehabilitation with his teammates. “Every morning you can see him at the clubhouse talking with a big smile, with an iced coffee in one hand,” he said. “Rehab is a battle against the mental, and his injury history is helping him recover.”
Ryu Hyun-jin had arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder labrum in 2015, and Tommy John surgery was a surgery he also underwent during his sophomore year at Dongsan High School.
According to Matheson reporter, Ryu Hyun-jin started pitching training at the level of a catch ball on a flat ground. He ranges from 90 to 120 feet. Hyun-Jin Ryu believes he will be able to start pitching in the bullpen in April. Bullpen pitching is proof that his elbow has recovered 100%.
Ryu Hyun-jin said, “My colleagues give me a lot of positive support. That’s why my motivation rises.” “These friends will leave in the next 2-3 weeks. I have to stay here and continue my rehabilitation without losing my mental concentration. I will go,” he said.
Toronto is not putting pressure on the speed of Ryu Hyun-jin’s return. She manages her schedule so that she can get enough rest and build her strength. We plan to check Ryu Hyun-jin’s physical condition on a weekly basis. Pitching coach Pete Walker said, “Ryu is moving around well. He is in good shape. He is out of the regular season rotation for the time being, but he is looking at the point where he can be ready for the major league level. He is determined. He is the reason he came to our team. I think they want to show it to Canadians.”
Toronto is expected to confirm the opening rotation in the order of Alec Manoa, Kevin Gaussman, Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, and Yusei Kikuchi. However, entering the season, there is no choice but to change the rotation due to injuries and sluggish variables. As Ryu Hyun-jin returns in midsummer, when the toughest race takes place, the club is also looking forward to it.
