‘First game in 398 days’ Ryu Hyun-jin pitches 3 innings of 1-run ball in Rookie League
- on Jul 05, 2023
Pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin (36-Toronto Blue Jays) pitched his first game in 398 days.
Ryu started the game against the FCL Tigers of Major League Baseball’s Rookie League on Friday (June 5) at Toronto’s spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida, giving up one run on four hits with five strikeouts in three innings.
It’s been nearly 13 months since Ryu pitched in a live game, starting against the Chicago White Sox in Major League Baseball (MLB) on June 2 last year. At the time, Ryu was diagnosed with an ulnar collateral ligament injury in his left elbow after he grimaced while pitching and was taken out early. After undergoing elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery), Ryu went through a rehabilitation process that saw him pitching out of the bullpen in May and live in June.먹튀검증
On this day, Ryu took the mound for the Toronto-based FCL Blue Jays. His opponents were prospects from the FCL Tigers, a minor league rookie team affiliated with the Detroit Tigers. He allowed runners on base in every inning from the first to the third, but after giving up a run in the first, he was able to keep the rest of the innings scoreless.
“He will now move to a higher-level league for a rehab assignment, and if he’s ready, he could be in the Major League Baseball (MLB) starting rotation as soon as this month,” CBS Sports reported.
Scott Mitchell, a reporter for Canadian outlet TSN, also explained Ryu’s rehabilitation on social media. “I’ve heard that Ryu is in very good shape,” he said, “and he was throwing 87-88 miles per hour (about 140-142 kilometers per hour) in the game.”
