Keegan Mathieson, the Toronto reporter for MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on social media that Hyun-jin Ryu will start against the Cubs on April 14.

In its game notes on the 11th, the Toronto club included Hyun-jin Ryu as the starting pitcher on the 14th in the starting rotation for the three-game home series against the Chicago Cubs in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) season, which will be held from December 12-14 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

However, Ryu’s starting spot will be finalized in a bullpen pitching session on the 12th. “Ryu will start the next game as normal if no issues are found in his bullpen work,” CBS Sports explained.

Ryu has been strong against the Cubs since breaking into the big leagues in 2013, going 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in four career starts. His most recent start came on June 17, 2019, when he allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings (non-decision) as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In his last start against the Cleveland Indians on April 8, Ryu threw four innings of one-hit ball with two strikeouts and no walks. He didn’t allow a single hit as he utilized his excellent command and command of the game.

However, in the bottom of the fourth inning, he was hit on the inside of his right knee by a pitch from Cleveland’s Oscar Gonzalez. The 157-kilometer-per-hour pitch hit Ryu, who quickly shrugged off the pain and made a quick catch and grounder to first base to end the inning, but immediately collapsed to the ground.

Ryu ended up saving his first win of the season for another time and was removed from the game in the bottom of the fifth inning to start the defense. An X-ray later revealed that there was no damage to the knee where he was hit, and he was cleared for his next start.

Ryu successfully returned to the big leagues after undergoing ligament reconstruction surgery on his left elbow last June and rehabbing for more than a year. He made his major league debut on April 2 against the Baltimore Orioles, allowing four runs on nine hits in five innings.

His second start, in Cleveland, was an improvement over the Baltimore outing, raising expectations for his comeback. He finished the season with a 2-1 record and a 4.00 ERA.

After this season, Ryu’s four-year, $80 million free agent contract with Toronto will end, starting in 2020. His future in the big leagues will depend on how he performs in his remaining starts in the second half of the season.
