Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) visits Coors Field, the grave of pitchers and a paradise for hitters, again after four years.
The American Professional Baseball Major League 소닉카지노 (MLB) Toronto Blue Jays team will start September with a six-game road trip to the American West.
Toronto predicted Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher in the first game of the six-game away game against the Colorado Rockies, which will be held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA on September 2 at 9:40 am (Korean time).
Ryu Hyun-jin will stand on the mound at Coors Field for the first time in 4 years and 1 month since August 1, 2019, when he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It is the first time wearing a Toronto uniform.
At Coors Field, which is located at an altitude of 1,600m above sea level, it is famous for the fact that batted balls reach farther with less air resistance.
Ryu Hyun-jin pitched in 6 games at Coors Field and struggled with 1-4 and an average ERA of 7.09. He allowed eight home runs in 26⅔ innings.
In his recent appearance at Coors Field, he won the game with 6 innings, 3 hits and no runs. Ryu Hyun-jin tasted victory without scoring for the first time here.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned after 14 months of rehabilitation after undergoing surgery for ligaments in his left elbow, won three consecutive victories over the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians since winning the return game against the Chicago Cubs on the 14th of this month.
With a slow curve in the early 100 km/h range and sophisticated control, which are rarely seen in the big leagues, the classic pattern that goes against the light-speed ball era gave a big boost to Toronto’s fall baseball challenge.
Even at Coors Field, which is a completely different environment from the stadiums where he has played games, the point to watch is whether Ryu Hyun-jin will keep the ball mix of four types of fastball, changeup, curve, and cut fastball, or whether he will face Rockies hitters with another special move instead of a curveball.
Colorado has the lowest win rate (0.371, 49 wins, 83 losses) in the National League. Still, the bat skill that took advantage of the home stadium is in the middle of the league.
As a long hit immediately puts you in danger, Ryu Hyun-jin, a ‘brain wave pitcher’, must find the secret of his operation.
Toronto, 4th in the American League wild card race, is chasing 3rd place Texas Rangers by 3 games, so it is in desperate need of a win.
