Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto) is cruising to 토토사이트 return to the big leagues. For Ryu Hyun-jin, who is taking steps step by step without overdoing it, the number of pitches and ball speed are the key to stand on the Major League mound again.

Ryu Hyun-jin pitched four innings (three hits and one strikeout in four innings) in a home game against Tampa Tarpons (under the New York Yankees) in the minor league single A at TD Ball Park in Dunedin, Florida, on the 10th (Korea Standard Time). In his second rehabilitation appearance, he also showed off his stability with his blade-like control.

On this day, Ryu threw 37 pitches. In the game against the Rookie League FCL Tigers (under the Detroit Tigers) on the 5th, which was his first appearance in rehabilitation, he threw 42 pitches in three innings. The number of pitches has decreased. However, it can be assumed that the game was set as a guideline for 50 pitches or 4 innings. It can be said that he finished his second rehabilitation appearance with a clean finish of four innings.

However, in order to return, he must be in a physical condition that can throw at least 80 balls. Toronto officials, including Toronto’s general manager Ross Atkins, say they need to be able to throw 80 to 100 balls to return to the big leagues.

The ball speed should also be raised further. Ryu Hyun-jin recorded a maximum speed of 88.4 miles (about 142 kilometers) in the mound on the 10th. The average fastball speed was 86.9 miles (about 140 kilometers). Last season’s average speed of 90 miles (about 144 kilometers) could be a benchmark for Ryu Hyun-jin’s return. No matter how much you play with control, you have to throw a ball more than 90 miles to face big league hitters.

Ryu Hyun-jin focused on rehabilitation for more than a year after elbow surgery. Preparations for his return are also smooth. It can recover more than 80 pitches and 90 miles. He is expected to take the mound for rehabilitation twice more and improve his condition. Canada’s Sports Net also said, “Ryu Hyun-jin is going in the right direction.” It is also expected that Ryu Hyun-jin’s return time will be outlined right after the All-Star break.
