Bad news struck Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), who is trying to win four consecutive games.
Toronto announced on the 30th (Korean time) that its main shortstop, Bo Bissett, was placed on the 10-day disabled list (IL) due to a quadriceps muscle injury in his right thigh. Bisset was replaced on the 28th against the Cleveland Guardians after feeling pain in his thigh during base play.
Toronto was in an emergency as third baseman Matt Chapman and shortstop Bisset were out of power. Chapman also felt pain in his right middle finger during the game against Cleveland on the 28th and was replaced during the game. Afterwards, he was diagnosed with a sprain and was listed on the IL on the 29th.
It is a big bad news for Ryu Hyun-jin, who is about to start his 6th appearance of the season. Bisset, who is ranked second in batting average (0.314) in the American League (AL) this season, leads Toronto’s batting lineup with 18 home runs and 62 RBIs with an OPS of 0.832. Chapman, who won three AL Gold Gloves and two Platinum Gloves, is an iron-clad third baseman who reliably protects hot corners.스포츠토토
According to the rotation, Ryu Hyun-jin is scheduled to start as a starting pitcher against the Rockies on September 2nd. While key resources in the infield have left, Ryu Hyun-jin is under a lot of pressure ahead of an away game at Coors Field, the home stadium of Colorado, which is called the “graveyard of pitchers.”
Ryu Hyun-jin pitched in 6 games at Coors Field and was sluggish with an average ERA of 7.09 with 1 win and 4 losses. He also had the most home runs (8) while away from Coors Field, and had the highest slugging percentage (0.667) and OPS (1.074). However, in his most recent appearance, the game on August 1, 2019 (LA Dodgers), there is a good memory of pitching 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 1 strikeout and no runs.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned after about a year and two months after elbow surgery, is cruising with an average ERA of 2.25 with 3 wins and 1 loss in 5 games. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has recently been on the rise with 3 consecutive wins as a starting pitcher, faced difficulties with the departure of key infielders due to injuries and an expedition to Coors Field ahead of his 4-game winning streak.
