Toronto Blue Jays’ Hyun-jin Ryu will make his scheduled start after shaking off a knee injury.
Hyun-jin Ryu is scheduled to start a home game against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday (July 14) at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
He went down after being hit in the right knee by a pitch in the top of the fourth inning of a road game against the Cleveland Indians on Aug. 8.
After picking up the ball and throwing to first base after being hit, Ryu fell to the ground and complained of excruciating pain.
At first, it appeared to be a serious injury. “At first, I thought, ‘I have to pack it up again,'” said a player’s representative, adding that he feared he might not be able to play the rest of the season.
However, he was diagnosed with a bruise, not a fracture, and recovered quickly enough to make a full start.
A return to the field doesn’t always mean a return to form. When we met in the clubhouse before the 13th game, the inside of Ryu’s right knee was still painfully bruised.
“At first, it was swollen as big as a baseball,” he said, pointing to the area, “but now it’s gone down a lot. His gait seemed normal.카지노사이트
He had already pitched in the bullpen the day before to check it out and found that his back was fine.
Toronto manager John Schneider said, “When he first went down, I was surprised and held my breath, but I’ve been relieved to see him get better every day since. He pitched really well out of the bullpen yesterday,” Schuder said of Ryu’s status.
“He’s a very young, strong young man,” he added, praising the 36-year-old veteran’s resilience. “It’s impressive that he was able to make a play at the end and that he was able to pitch a full game. You have to recognize his efforts,” he added.
