The confrontation between Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) and Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) was eventually canceled. Toronto coach John Schneider practically made it official on the 25th (Korean time).
It is too much of a burden for a pitcher who has returned to the major leagues after Tommy John surgery and rehabilitation to face Ohtani right away, and as Toronto enters a 17-game series, Ryu Hyun-jin skips the Angels’ 3-game series and enters the middle of the 17-game series. According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet, Canada, the management of the 40-man roster is clean only when he returns after the trade deadline (the 2nd of next month).
Then, when will Ryu Hyun-jin’s return match be? After Toronto completes its three-game series against the Angels, it will play four home games against the Baltimore Orioles, the leaders of the American League East, from the 1st to the 4th. Continuing from the 5th to the 7th, 3 consecutive matches against the Boston Red Sox, 4 consecutive matches against the Cleveland Guardians from the 8th to 11th, and 3 consecutive matches at home against the Chicago Cubs from the 12th to 14th, 17 consecutive matches are summarized. .
In the end, the return match is realistically most likely to be one of four home games against Baltimore. It doesn’t look good to procrastinate any longer. After the trade deadline, you can think of a 2-4 day game. If he goes straight to the game on the 2nd, it is expected that he will pitch against the Boston Cubs on the 7th and the Chicago Cubs on the 12th.
In this case, another interesting matchup occurs. Boston is in the bottom ranks in the American League Eastern Division, but it has Masataka Yoshida, a candidate for Rookie of the Year and second in batting average (0.315 as of the 25th). Ryu Hyun-jin can face Yoshida for the first time ever.
And the Chicago Cubs has Cody Bellinger, who ate a bowl of rice with the Los Angeles Dodgers. After being effectively kicked out of the Dodgers, Bellinger made a spectacular comeback in a Cubs uniform this season. As of the 25th, in 68 games, batting average 0.319, 14 homers, 44 RBIs, OPS 0.918. The two have never faced off against each other.
The variable is Bellinger’s tradeability. The possibility of a surprise transfer ahead of the trade deadline for Bellinger is being discussed. In addition, the Cubs also have Mike Tuchman, who played for the Hanwha Eagles in the 2022 season, and Japanese hitter Seiya Suzuki.카지노사이트
If Ryu Hyun-jin’s comeback is scheduled for the 3rd or 4th, he will skip the Boston match and play either the Cleveland match, the Cubs match, or one of two home matches against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 16th and 17th. The return match could be an expedition to Boston, which will start on the 5th. In many ways, Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to create various storylines even before his return.
