Is Ryu Hyun-jin’s comeback a disaster? All-out fight against Cleveland is important

 There are still questions about Ryu Hyun-jin’s (35, Toronto) comeback. It is Ryu Hyun-jin who needs to show his potential in future starts.

Ryu Hyun-jin recorded 9 hits and 4 안전놀이터 runs in 5 innings in his return against Baltimore on the 2nd. After undergoing his second elbow ligament reconstructive surgery in June 2022, he made his big league comeback after 426 days. Reviews are mixed.

Considering the long hiatus, the evaluation of an easy comeback is dominant, but there are also negative views. Fanside’s Jace Journal criticized Ryu Hyun-jin and Alec Manoa, who returned on the 6th (Korean time), using the expression ‘disaster’. Jace Journal said, “Ryu Hyun-jin made a comeback after a year, but it was a disaster. “It’s hard to predict what to expect in the long run from Manoa,” he said.

The Jays Journal, which positively analyzed Toronto’s six-man starting rotation, analyzed that “Toronto’s starting lineup is competitive, but considering the uncertainty of Ryu Hyun-jin and Manoa, it could be a disaster if someone loses (by injury).”

In general, it takes some time to recover to normal skills after elbow surgery. However, Ryu Hyun-jin has already successfully rehabilitated after elbow surgery. He also threw hope in his comeback. However, it is important for him to show a little better in his start against Cleveland on the 8th.

Cleveland is a relatively weak opponent compared to Baltimore, the American League winning percentage, which was the opponent before the return. Ryu Hyun-jin is also strong with 2 wins in 3 games and an average ERA of 2.84 against Cleveland.
