Ryu Hyun-jin Becomes Stronger When he Gets Hit... ‘Scoring Power Defense Ability’ Comparable to that of his Prime

 

 

Escaped without conceding a goal in three scoring crises against Boston... 4⅔ innings of scoreless innings with a change-up to prepare for the opponent's batting line... 'Clever pitch'

 

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is a pitcher with excellent speed control.

 

Since his days playing in the KBO League, his ability to apply or withdraw force depending on the situation has been excellent. 카지노사이트위키

 

When the score gap was wide or there was no crisis, he threw the ball lightly to save his strength, but after a close game or when he was allowed to get on base, he threw the ball hard to escape the crisis.

 

Ryu Hyun-jin's crisis management skills during his prime were particularly remarkable.

 

Ryu Hyun-jin ranked first in MLB in ERA (2.32) in 2019 while playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers of the Major League Baseball (MLB) and ranked second in Cy Young Award voting.

 

At the time, Ryu Hyun-jin's hitting percentage (0.234) was not very good, ranking 22nd overall, but his hitting percentage in scoring range was only 0.186.

 

He commanded MLB by showing off his superhuman abilities in every crisis situation.

 

Ryu Hyun-jin maintains his unique ‘crisis management skills’ even after getting older and having surgery.

 

He recorded a scoring average of 0.200 in seven starts, from the game against the Baltimore Orioles on the 2nd of last month (Korean time) to the game against the Texas Rangers on the 13th of this month, when he returned from the second elbow ligament joint surgery in his life.

 

It is the second lowest record since Ryu Hyun-jin made his MLB debut in 2013.

 

He also showed off his outstanding ability in the home game against the Boston Red Sox held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 18th.

 

Ryu Hyun-jin gave up 6 hits and 2 walks in 4⅔ innings on this day, but shut down the opponent's batting line by allowing no runs.

 

Except for the first inning, he was in danger of being in scoring position every inning, but escaped with no runs each time.

 

Ryu Hyun-jin did not give up a run in the second inning, hitting Pablo Reyes, Trevor Story, and Bobby Dalbec with no outs on second and third base.

 

In the third inning, he faced a situation where 2nd and 3rd bases were out with no outs, but both Rob Refsnyder and Justin Turner were hit, and after giving up a walk to Rafael Devers, he caught Adam Duvall with a fly ball to right field.

 

In the 4th inning, a defensive error put the team on first and third base with one out, but they continued their scoreless streak by catching Reece McGuire on a double play.

 

In the 5th inning, he was replaced after striking out Turner with one out and a runner on first base and giving up a walk to Devers.

 

On this day, Ryu Hyun-jin actively used the changeup, which had been his main weapon until last year.

 

This season, Ryu Hyun-jin mainly uses a slow curveball as his deciding pitch, but on this day, he threw a lot of changeups.

 

There was a reason.

 

Boston prepared well to attack Ryu Hyun-jin.

 

He placed seven right-handed hitters in the starting lineup, and even conducted intensive batting training before games to prepare for slow curves.

 

Boston placed a large number of players in the starting lineup who were strong against Ryu Hyun-jin or who knew Ryu Hyun-jin's characteristics well.

 

Turner worked together with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Boston catcher Maguire once formed a battery with Ryu Hyun-jin in Toronto.

 

Ryu Hyun-jin seemed to have seen through this and caught his opponent off guard.

 

He attacked the opponent's batting line with a changeup instead of a curveball.

 

The deciding balls that caught Story and Duval in the second inning were all outside changeups, and Refsnyder and Turner also used changeups in the third inning.

 

According to Baseball Savant, MLB.com's statistics site, Boston batters swung at Ryu Hyun-jin's changeup 11 times, producing only one hit.

 

It was a scoreless game created by Ryu Hyun-jin's skill, boldness, and strong mentality.
