‘Korean Monster’ Hyun-jin Ryu (36-Toronto Blue Jays) is finally set to make his big league return, and his gumshoe Alec Manoa (25) is ready to follow suit.

Manoa pitched 5 1/3 innings against the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, USA, on 24 April (ET), giving up three runs on four hits with six strikeouts.

Ryu Hyun-jin is finally out of the long injury tunnel and on the verge of a big league return. After a successful rehabilitation pitch, he is now on the verge of reaching his dream stage.

He has made four rehab appearances. Ryu threw 42 pitches and topped out at 88 mph (141.6 km/h) in the minor league Rookie League on the 5th, followed by 37 pitches and 88.4 mph (142.3 km/h) in Low Single-A on the 10th, and 66 pitches and 89.8 mph (144.5 km/h) in Triple-A on the 16th. He made a start for the Syracuse Mets of Triple-A New York on the 22nd, allowing two runs on three hits (one homer) and one walk with five strikeouts in six innings. He threw 85 pitches and reached a fastball of 146.1 mph.

In 18 innings of live action, he gave up three home runs and walked just one. With his pitch count and velocity up, Ryu was one step closer to returning to the big leagues.

He will join the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 25th. The timing of his return to the big leagues isn’t set in stone, but the team wants to check on his condition.

If they give him the all-clear, he could be available to play against the Los Angeles Angels on the 29th and 31st. He could then face Shohei “Idoryu” Ohtani.

Toronto’s mound is full of hope. The six-man rotation that Toronto manager John Schneider wants is possible.

On top of that, Manoa, who had been showing signs of anxiety, pitched well. “With Hyun-jin Ryu set to rejoin the team in a few days, Manoa will need to make an impact to help the Jays take a step forward. With Hyun-Jin Ryu set to return in a few days, Manoa will need to make an impact to jumpstart the Toronto rotation.”카지노사이트

Luckily, he got the nod. Manoa allowed just three hits in five and a third innings. Despite the four walks, he struck out six and had a decent outing. Unfortunately, he was unable to get the win as he went down with the game tied at 2-2.

He bounced back from a four-run outing in three innings against San Diego on the 19th.

Including this game, Manoa is now 16-2 with a 6.10 ERA in 72 1/3 innings pitched this season.

There was also a sigh of relief locally.

After the game, ‘Bluebird Banter’, a Toronto fan page on SB Nation in the US, wrote: “We got what we could expect from Manoa. Unfortunately, one of the three hits was a home run. But all in all, Manoa pitched a good game.”
