‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin seeks second win of season

The “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is looking for his second win of the season.

The Blue Jays will host the Cincinnati Reds in a three-game series starting on the 19th, and Hyun-jin Ryu will start the third game on the final day. In his last outing against the Chicago Cubs, he posted a 2.57 ERA in five innings of relief, marking his first win of the season after 444 days of Tommy John rehabilitation. Now that he’s back to pitching flawlessly, it will be interesting to see if he can continue his winning streak.

In his Major League Baseball (MLB) career, Ryu is 5-2 with a 3.23 ERA against Cincinnati. Last year, Ryu made a start against Cincinnati and struck out six over six innings. He pitched a scoreless inning with his trademark sharp delivery and earned his first win of the season. Furthermore, shortstop Beau Bissett is set to return to the big leagues on the 20th. Prior to his injury, Bissett had a strong year offensively and defensively, hitting .321 with 17 home runs and an OPS of .846. He looks to be a special helper for Ryu.바카라사이트

Cincinnati will counter with “hard-throwing” Hunter Green. Hunter Greene is in his second year in the majors and was the opening day starter for the Reds. Green, who was placed on the disabled list last month, threw 83 pitches in 5⅔ innings in a rehab start at Triple-A on July 17. His fastball averaged 97.4 mph that day, according to, and he touched 100 mph on three occasions. For Cincinnati, Green’s return to the starting rotation should help fuel their postseason hopes.
