Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) has received an unexpected setback in his quest for a fourth win of the season. First, third baseman Matt Chapman and then shortstop Bo Bissett went down with injuries.
Hyun-jin Ryu picked up his third win of the season, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits (two home runs) with five strikeouts in five innings against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada on Tuesday (July 27). It was the third straight win for the right-hander after he recorded his first win of the season on April 14 against the Chicago Cubs.
Manager John Schneider said after the game, “Ryu was great. He had good command and pitched efficiently. It makes you feel good to see him face hitters. He’s got better velocity control than anybody in the major leagues.”
“Ryu is a very smart pitcher. He knows when to throw hard and when to throw slow.” “It wasn’t an easy decision to make with only 70 pitches, but we trusted our bullpen and took him off the mound.”
Ryu will look for his fourth win of the season on April 2 against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA. Coors Field is a hitter-friendly ballpark that is often referred to as a pitcher’s graveyard. Due to its high elevation, the air is less dense and the balls travel a different distance than in other ballparks.토스카지노
Ryu, who often took the mound at Coors Field during his time with the Los Angeles Dodgers, has struggled a bit, going 1-4 with a 7.09 ERA in six career starts. In addition to Ryu’s struggles, the Dodgers need support from his teammates, and they’ve lost two reliable helpers.
Bissett, who felt pain in his right thigh while running to first base after hitting a grounder to second base in the fifth inning of a home game against Cleveland on March 28, was placed on the 10-day disabled list with 30 games remaining. Fortunately, the condition is not serious, but it will keep him out of the lineup for the trip to Coors Field.
Bissett has appeared in 114 games this season, batting .301 (152-for-484) with 18 home runs, 62 RBIs, 54 runs scored and three doubles. The loss of Chapman to a broken right middle finger and Bissett to the disabled list will be unwelcome news for the Rangers. Chapman has a low batting average of 2-for-48, but he has the power to hit 15 home runs.
Mason McCoy, who was acquired from the Seattle Mariners, gets the big league promotion in place of Bissett.
