Ryu Hyun-jin pitches first live game, throws one shutout inning…manager says “it felt good” thumbs up!

‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays), who is rehabbing from left elbow surgery, successfully completed his first live pitch.

According to a report on Sportsnet, a Canadian sports media outlet, Ryu threw one inning of live pitching at the team’s spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida. Manager John Schneider said, “It felt good.”

Ryu, who is 75-45 with a 3.27 ERA in 175 career major league games (1003⅓ innings), struggled last year, going 2-2 with a 5.67 ERA in six games (27 innings). He underwent Tommy John surgery and did not take the mound in the big leagues until June 2 last year.먹튀검증

Ryu transformed himself into a leaner version of himself through intense training and a strict diet. Ryu aims to join the starting rotation in the second half. “I’m working hard so that I can be a part of Toronto from the second half. My goal is to come back in the second half.”

Alec Manoa, who was demoted to the minors to rest his pitches, pitched five innings in his second simulated start. He threw 75 pitches. “I’m pleased, he’s making good progress,” Schneider said of Manoa’s recovery.

Manoa showed promise in his first year in the big leagues, going 9-2 with a 3.22 ERA in 20 games in 2021.

He completed a career-high season last year, going 16-7 with a 2.24 ERA in 31 starts. He finished third in the American League Cy Young Award voting and established himself as Toronto’s ace.

However, he has struggled this season, pitching below expectations. In 13 games, he has a 1-7 record. His ERA is 6.36.
