Ryu Hyun-jin tries again to win the most games against Minnesota on the 18th
Ryu Hyun-jin (34, Toronto Blue Jays) will try again for his most wins at home against Minnesota at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 18th (Korea Standard Time).
The Toronto club announced Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher for the game on the 16th. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has 13 wins, 8 losses, and a 4.11 ERA this season, will tie the 14th win of the season (2013-2014 and 2019) achieved three times when he was with the LA Dodgers. The American League’s multiple wins competition can also revive the spark. Currently, Garrett Cole (15 wins and 7 losses) of the New York Yankees is in first place and Ryu Hyun-jin is in second place.
The ERA should also be lowered. Ryu Hyun-jin collapsed with seven runs in 2.1 innings in Game 1 of the Doubleheader against Baltimore on the 12th, soaring his ERA from 3.77 to 4.11. Since entering the Major League in 2013, Ryu Hyun-jin has never recorded an ERA of more than four points in a season that filled the prescribed innings. Ryu Hyun-jin’s pride is at stake, as he also won the ERA title with 2.32 in 2019. Ryu Hyun-jin said at an official press conference after the match against Baltimore, “The ERA is the most concerned record,” and vowed, “There are not many remaining games this season, so I will focus more.” 안전공원
Ryu Hyun-jin’s role is important as the team is also tied for first place in the American League wild card due to its recent frightening rise. It is the first time that Ryu Hyun-jin will take the mound against Minnesota since 2017 when he played for the Dodgers. The opposing starter is Michael Pineda, who has 6 wins, 8 losses and a 3.87 ERA this season.
