Ryu Hyun-jin joins Toronto camp early… Showing off the thickness of Lee Man-gi’s calves
Pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin (36), who is undergoing rehabilitation after elbow surgery, appeared at the Toronto Blue Jays spring camp.
On the 14th (Korean time), the Toronto club’s official SNS posted photos and videos of its players who joined the training ground in Dunedin, Florida, USA, where the spring camp was set up. According to local media such as Canada’s ‘Toronto Sun’, although it was not an official call-up day, they each exercised on the first day of self-training.
Including Hyunjin Ryu, pitchers Alec Manoa, Kevin Gaussman, Nate Pearson, Eric Swanson, catcher Danny Janson, infielders Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bisset, Santiago Espinal, and outfielders George Springer and Kevin Kiermeier, Toronto’s key players took the attendance stamp. took
In the photo of Ryu Hyun-jin, who greets with a bright smile and raises his hand, it is the calf that draws attention. Ryu Hyun-jin, wearing shorts, clearly showed off his unique hard and curved calf muscles.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s calves are so thick that they can be compared to ‘ssireum legend’ Lee Man-gi. Lee Man-gi has boasted heart-shaped calf muscles several times through broadcasting, and Ryu Hyun-jin is no less.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who boasts natural calf thickness, increased his momentum after advancing to the major leagues in the US. There is also a rumor that his calves are thicker than when he was in Korea. If your calf is thick, it’s good to catch a sense of balance. It can be said to be the source of Ryu Hyun-jin’s unique pitching balance and command. 카지노사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent second elbow ligament surgery in June last year, is currently undergoing rehabilitation with the goal of returning to action this summer. He left for the United States at the end of last year after a short schedule of about a month in Korea. He left earlier than usual to throw the ball in the warm ball, and also joined the Toronto spring camp early to speed up his rehabilitation.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed a four-year, $80 million free agent contract with Toronto in December 2019, recorded 231 strikeouts with an average ERA of 4.07 and 21 wins and 12 losses in 49 games (263 innings) over three years. In the first year of the transfer in 2020, he played in 12 games (67 innings) with an average ERA of 2.69 with 5 wins and 2 losses, leading Toronto to advance to the postseason by ranking third in the American League Cy Young Award. He has to show his competitiveness when he returns in the second half of the season as this year is the final year of his four-year contract.
Meanwhile, in Toronto, the pitcher-catcher group will be officially convened on the 17th. From the 22nd, the first training will be held with a full squad including fielders. Then, starting with the match against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the 26th, the exhibition game schedule will begin.
