In an interview after the team’s 27-8 home win over the Cleveland Guardians at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 3th (Korean time)
Jansen praised starter Ryu Hyun-jin, saying, “He’s been doing really well so far.”
On this day
Ryu Hyun-jin became the winning pitcher with 5+ innings, 4 hits, 2 home runs, 5 strikeouts, and 3 runs (2 walks).
He has a 5.2 ERA in five games since his return.
Jansen said, “They’re throwing a mix of different restraints.
He has a fastball on his body and a changeup, curve, and cutter on both the inside and outside.
He attacks the corners of the strike zone and shows incredible command.
I’ve been really enjoying it so far,” he said of Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching.
When asked what has changed since his return, he said, “The biggest thing is the ‘extension side the command of the outside of the left-handed hitter 지울프-토토 the body of the right-handed hitter.
We’re trying to make sure of that. Right now, he’s showing really good fastball command.
Regarding the suppression of strong batting balls that do not exceed 90 miles on average he said
I still came out to 89~90 miles.
He’s got good fastball command and a plus-level off-speed pitch on top of that. With this, we’re taking the batters off balance.
As for his brief conversation on the mound with Jose Ramirez in the sixth inning of the game
I wanted to give him some breathing space because there was a lot of work ahead of him.
The bullpen was also warming up, so there was also an intention to buy time,” he said, before explaining the situation at the time
At the same time, I had to avoid being hit by the opposing hitter, so I double-checked my plan.”
Major League Baseball has limited pitching time with pitch clocks starting this season, and has introduced a device called Pitchcom
which can exchange autographs between batteries, to reduce the time required for autograph exchanges.
When asked how Hyun-Jin Ryu is adjusting to the new equipment, Jansen gave a thumbs up, saying, “He’s doing really well.”
According to his explanation, the catcher still has the option of the ball type, but Ryu Hyun Jin also has a button that allows him to select the ball at the same time, and he uses it to communicate.
The scene where Ryu Hyun Jin presses something on his waist during the climb is the scene where he uses Pitchcom.
“He still gave me the power to pitch,” Jansen said.
I’m trying to be as same as possible. We have been preparing thoroughly before the game.
If he shakes his head twice, he decides to pitch (by pressing the button).
In doing so, the rhythm is not broken, and the pitch clock is kept.
He praised Ryu Hyun-jin’s adaptability, saying he is “handling the new equipment like a pro.
It’s a little weird, but that’s baseball today
he said, laughing broadly and leaving the clubhouse.
