Ryu Hyun-jin started the game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time) and pitched four hits (one homer) in five innings, two walks, three strikeouts, and two runs. He pitched 76.
He came down the mound with the winning pitcher requirements, but the bullpen blew the winning requirements. Still, the team won 13-9 as the lineup exploded late. It was clear that Ryu Hyun-jin’s hard pitching made the stage for victory. Ryu Hyun-jin returned from elbow surgery this year, and his team recorded five wins and one loss. All of the last five games have been won.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed a four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto ahead of the 2020 season, has found a “best friend” since his transfer. I’ve been working with catcher Danny Jansen. We hit it off again. Ryu Hyun-jin and Jansen have become “soul batteries.” In Ryu Hyun-jin’s career, Jansen has now become a catcher with a significant stake. 스포츠토토
This year, Jansen is in charge of Toronto’s home turf by dividing Alejandro Kirk and the starting catcher’s mask, but Jansen will be chosen first when it comes to Ryu Hyun-jin’s game. Ryu Hyun-jin is making a successful comeback season with Jansen even after his return from injury this year.
Including the game, he worked with Jansen for 215 ⅓ innings in 41 games. He has a 3.47 ERA. When it comes to Ryu Hyun-jin, the best catcher who comes to mind was A.J. Ellis of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He played 245 innings in 41 games with Ellis, and Jansen is now a catcher who has played with Ryu Hyun-jin for as long as Ellis.
He helps Ryu Hyun-jin not only on the mound but also at the right place at bat. On the same day, he also gave Ryu Hyun-jin a winning requirement by shooting a two-run shot in the top of the sixth inning when he faced 2-2. Jansen hit a solo home run in the game against Baltimore on the 2nd of last month, and he played a multi-hit game in the game against Cincinnati on the 21st.
However, for the time being, the game should be played without any partners. In the bottom of the sixth inning after Ryu Hyun-jin went down on the day, Jansen was hit on the finger by a foul ball during the surprised Jones at-bat. He was later replaced by Alejandro Kirk in the seventh inning, though he was responsible for the rest of the inning. Kirk pulled off a sweeping three-run double in a 5-5 tie.
After the game, sad news about Jansen was heard. Immediately after the injury, he was diagnosed with a bruise, but an X-ray examination turned him into a fracture. Coach John Schneider reported on Jansen’s broken middle finger of his right hand, saying, “It was unfortunate and unfortunate. It was quite a strange injury. And it seems that these injuries are occurring simultaneously.” Currently, main shortstop Bob Bissett and main third baseman Matt Chapman are both out due to injuries.
For now, Jansen heads to the injured list. Another catcher, Tyler Heinemann, will join the squad. Afterwards, additional examinations will be performed, and accurate findings will only be made afterwards. It is still unclear how long it will take to leave.
For now, he will have to work with Kirk more than Jansen. He played just one game with Kirk last year, but the results were not good. In a game against the Oakland Athletics on April 17 last year, he recorded six hits (one homer) in four innings, one strikeout, and five runs.
Toronto has 27 games left in the regular season, and Ryu Hyun-jin can play four to five more games due to his schedule. It remains to be seen how much longer Jansen’s departure will continue, but it could be a bad thing for Ryu Hyun-jin, who has to play without a break for the time being.
