MLB Toronto, third baseman and shortstop injured… What about Hyunjin Ryu?
Ground ball induction pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin challenges 4 wins with backup infielders
‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays)’s 4-game winning streak was met with bad news.
This is because starting third baseman Matt Chapman (30) and starting shortstop Bo Bisset (25) were put on the injured list (IL).
The American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) Toronto club announced on the 30th (Korean time) that Bisset was placed on the 10-day IL due to a right quadriceps (thigh muscle) injury.
The club called up Mason McCoy, an infielder from Triple-A in the minor leagues, to replace Bisset.
Matt Chapman & Bo Bisset
Chapman and Bisset were hurt side by side in a game against the Cleveland Guardians on the 28th.
Bisset was on base in the bottom of the 5th inning and was replaced after complaining of thigh pain, while Chapman felt pain in the middle finger of his right hand and could not play the game from the bottom of the 6th inning. 바카라사이트 Chapman was diagnosed with a middle finger ligament sprain as a result of a checkup and went to IL on the 29th, and Bisset followed the next day.
The injuries of the two players are expected to have an adverse effect on the Toronto club competing for the wild card.
It is also bad news for Ryu Hyun-jin.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who catches opponents better with hits rather than strikeouts, needs help from infielders with good defense.
Chapman is the best defenseman in MLB who has won three Gold Gloves.
On the 21st
Ryu Hyun-jin made a series of defensive mistakes in the starting game and showed anxiety, but no one doubts his defensive skills.
Bisset also boasts stable defense.
In particular, Bisset helped pitchers with an extraordinary sense of hitting, posting a batting average of 0.314, 18 homers, and 62 RBIs this season.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who had to play without Chapman and Bissett, was under considerable pressure.
Toronto plans to fill the vacancy with non-main players until the two players return.
In a home game against the Washington Nationals on the 30th, Toronto placed backup infielder Santiago Espinal as third baseman and Ernie Clement, who came up from the minor leagues, as shortstop.
Even in Ryu Hyun-jin’s starting game, backup players are expected to play the shortstop and third baseman.
If the starting rotation is calculated,
Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to start in an away game against the Colorado Rockies to be held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado at 9:40 a.m. on the 2nd of next month.
Coors Field, located at an altitude of 1,600m above sea level, is an advantageous stadium for batters with many long hits due to low air resistance.
Ryu Hyun-jin had to fight against various adverse conditions.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent left elbow ligament surgery in June of last year and devoted himself to rehabilitation for more than a year, returned to the big leagues on the 2nd and recorded 3 wins and 1 loss with an ERA of 2.25 in 5 games.
