‘No-hitter in 4 innings, then hit by a hard pitch’ Ryu Hyun-jin to start against Cubs on Thursday… looking for first win of season
The “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is set to make his third start of the season after shaking off injury concerns.
According to MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, Hyun-jin Ryu is scheduled to start the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Toronto Blue Jays at 2:37 a.m. ET on Thursday at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
카지노사이트Ryu suffered a setback in his second start of the season against the Cleveland Indians on 8 August. With two outs in the fourth inning, Ryu was hit in the leg by a 97.7 mph (157.2 km/h) fastball from Oscar Gonzalez. After pushing through the pain to get the third out, Ryu fell to the ground and was unable to get up for some time in excruciating pain.
In the end, Ryu was unable to complete his no-hitter, having pitched four innings of one-hit ball with two strikeouts and no walks. A post-game X-ray revealed a bruised knee.
“Toronto manager John Schneider said the swelling in Ryu’s leg has gone down,” Sportsnet Canada reported. “The veteran left-hander will throw a bullpen session on the 12th and then start on the 14th if all goes well,” the media outlet said.
