MLB.com announced Toronto’s selection on the 19th as Jose Berrios,

and released ‘part of the scheduled rotation’ with Chris Bassett on the 20th and Hyun-jin Ryu on the 21st.

Ryu Hyun-jin won the starting game against the Chicago Cubs on the 14th

with a good pitching of 5 innings, 2 hits, 2 runs (own charge) and 3 strikeouts.

It was 444 days since Ryu Hyun-jin won the match against the Los Angeles Angels on May 27 last year.

Its Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent left elbow ligament surgery on June 19 last year,

played a comeback against the Baltimore Orioles on the 2nd of this month

(5 innings, 9 hits, 4 runs) and became a losing pitcher.

On the 8th, against the Cleveland Guardians, he pitched 4 innings with no hits and no runs, but his knee was hit hard by the batted ball of the last batter in the 4th inning, and he was knocked out early.

In the third game against the Cubs after surgery, he overpowered the opponent’s batting line with a perfect pitch and won the victory after 444 days.

After the game, Ryu Hyun-jin said, “I controlled all pitches as I wanted,” and “rehabilitation went smoothly, and I am satisfied with the current situation.”

Toronto also welcomed Ryu Hyun-jin’s return, and kept Ryu Hyun-jin in the starting rotation even when reducing one starter from the 6-starter system to the 5-starter system.


Ryu Hyun-jin’s next opponent is Cincinnati.

Cincinnati ranked 11th out of 30 major league teams with a team OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.744 through the 16th.

Since they are competing for the National League wild card, the team is highly motivated.

Ryu Hyun-jin pitched well with a 3.23 ERA in 8 games against Cincinnati.

The recent confrontation took place on May 21 last year, and at that time,

Ryu Hyun-jin won the starter with a good pitch with 6 hits and no runs in 6 innings.

Among the players currently playing for Cincinnati, there are a total of four hitters who have faced Ryu Hyun-jin.

Joey Votto had 5 hits in 17 at-bats (batting average of 0.294) and 1 home run, Kevin Newman (2 hits in 3 at-bats) and TJ Friedle (1 hit in 2 at bats) also had experience getting hits from Ryu Hyun-jin.

Tyler Stevenson went hitless in three at-bats.

Cincinnati’s projected starting pitcher is Hunter Green.

Green, who throws a fast ball with an average speed of 159 km per hour, is recording an average ERA of 3.93 with 2 wins and 4 losses this year.

On the 21st, major league fans will be able to watch an interesting game in which Ryu Hyun-jin’s accuracy and green power collide.
