“If the RYU command works properly, it’s so effective”… It was only ‘average 140.7km’, but ‘high praise’ by the media

 “How effective it is when the command works properly”

Toronto Blue Jays Ryu Hyun-jin held an away match against the 2023 Major League Cincinnati Reds held at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA on the 21st (hereinafter Korean time). As a starter, he pitched 83 pitches in 5 innings, giving up 4 hits, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs (unlawful).

Ryu Hyun-jin made his comeback against the Baltimore Orioles on the 2nd. At that time, Ryu Hyun-jin left regret with 9 hits and 4 runs (4 earned) in 5 innings against Baltimore, the #1 “strong team” in the Eastern Division of the American League, but on the 8th, against the Cleveland Guardians, he showed off 4 innings of “no hit” pitching, 14 In the confrontation with the Chicago Cubs on the 1st, he tasted an emotional “first win” with 2 runs in 5 innings (visa).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who started full-fledged rehabilitation last month after undergoing Tommy John surgery, had a total of four appearances in the minor leagues, gradually increasing the number of pitches and innings before returning to the major leagues. The problem was ‘restraint’. Ryu Hyun-jin was not originally the type to catch batters with restraints, but when he started his rehabilitation, his restraints were clearly lower than in previous years.

However, contrary to his concerns, his velocity in his first appearance was relatively good. Ryu Hyun-jin recorded the highest 91 miles (about 146.5 km) in the game against Baltimore on the 2nd. The slowest four-seam fastball thrown by Ryu Hyun-jin was only 87.1 miles (about 140.2 km), but the average speed was 89 miles (about 143.2 km), which was not too bad.

Falling speed is a phenomenon that occurs when there is something wrong with the body or when the physical condition is not good. However, in the case of Ryu Hyun-jin, it was a little different. While his speed decreased as he pitched, his pitching content gradually improved. It seemed that Ryu Hyun-jin, who had originally displayed a show of experience overflowing with skill, had turned into a more ‘snake’.

Ryu Hyun-jin recorded a maximum speed of 90.7 miles (approximately 146 km), an average of 86.7 miles (approximately 138.5 km), and an average of 88.8 miles (approximately 143 km) in the match against Cleveland, where he threw a “no hit” pitch. The highest speed of the mound immediately before harvesting the’first win’ was 91.1 miles (about 146.6 km), the fastest since returning, while the lowest speed was the slowest at 85.8 miles (about 138.1 km). Because of this, his average velocity was also only 88.4 miles (about 142.3 km).

On the 21st, when he won two consecutive victories in 451 days, his speed decreased further. Ryu Hyun-jin’s highest speed was 89.6 miles (about 144.2 km), which did not exceed 90 miles. In a situation where he was driven to a crisis, he seemed to raise his speed, but the lowest speed was 84.8 miles (about 136.5 km) and the average speed stayed at 87.4 miles (about 140.7 km).

Considering Cincinnati’s season performance, which is tied for second place in the National League’s central division, ‘restraint’ did not seem to be an important factor anymore for Ryu Hyun-jin. Despite his average fastball speed of just 140km, he played with the Cincinnati lineup, throwing a mix of his new “main weapon” curveball, changeup, cutter, and four-seam fastball, which he noticeably improved after returning from injury.바카라사이트

Ryu Hyun-jin conceded a run due to third baseman Matt Chapman’s fatal throwing error, but other pitches were solid. At the end of the 5th inning, which was the biggest crisis except for the 2nd inning, where 2 runs were scored, Ryu Hyun-jin showed off a pitch of ‘superpower’ that turned all of Cincinnati’s top batting lines into a bum hit. It was like being on top of the heads of hitters in Cincinnati.

Of course, all of this was possible because of the backing of ‘Jegu’. The local press also poured out praise. Thomas Hall of ‘Yahoo Sports Canada’ said, “This day showed how effective Ryu Hyun-jin’s command was when it worked properly.” I blocked it with two runs in an inning,” he praised.

Canada’s ‘Sportsnet’ then said, “Toronto’s offensive power was undoubtedly the driving force behind the victory, but it also benefited from excellent pitching.” He pitched a hit and run,” he said.
