Korea, which had been defeated 0-10 by China the previous day (29th), reported its first victory in the tournament and tied with the Philippines (1 win, 1 loss). China is leading with two wins.

Along with pitcher Yejin Koo, Jiyoon Kim (center fielder) – Jooah Yoo (second baseman) – Yeeun Kim (shortstop) – Seoyoon Lee (catcher) – Heeji Nam (designated hitter) – Minju Song (third baseman) – Dain Seo (left fielder) – The starting lineup was formed with Eom Soo-min (right fielder).

From the beginning of the game, Korea pushed Hong Kong hard. He gave up a run in the first inning, but scored a total of 6 hits, including 2 doubles and 2 triples, at the end of the 1st inning and scored 4 runs. The Korean batters, perfectly adapted to the ball from the Hong Kong starting pitcher, added 2 runs in the 2nd inning, 2 runs in the 3rd inning, and 4 runs in the 4th inning, ending the game.

Korean starting pitcher Koo Ye-jin lost control and gave up one run after one inning. Afterwards, Park Na-rim and Song Ji-in climbed the mound one after another and each lost one run, but they did not waver anymore and contributed to Korea’s victory.

Korea, which changed the atmosphere with a great victory over Hong Kong, is scheduled to play the last match of the preliminary round against the Philippines at 4:30 pm on the 31st. If they win the match against the Philippines, they will get the right to advance to the Super Round.

After the match, national team coach Jang Jae-ho said, “Yesterday we lost against China, but I think the players gained confidence by winning against Hong Kong.” I will advance,” he said, giving strength to his voice.

Terms were exchanged, but Kim Tae-gun’s long-term contract negotiations were slower than expected

No Comments

Negotiations for a long-term contract between catcher Kim Tae-gun (33) and the KIA Tigers, which seemed to be concluded quickly, are progressing slowly. 스포츠토토

KIA and Kim Tae-goon have been together since the 5th of last month. KIA, whose main catcher position was vacant, risked bleeding by giving away Ryu Ji-hyeok, who can defend all positions in the infield, to the Samsung Lions. Kim Tae-goon, who had been staying as a backup after being pushed by ‘national team’ catcher Kang Min-ho, was able to regain his starting position again. 

There was a prospect that his long-term contract was also counted down. Kim Tae-goon will be eligible for free agency (FA) after this season. KIA also knew this and made a trade. 

Kia has no choice but to be wary of repeating the same mistake. Last year, Kiwoom Heroes paid a player (Kim Tae-jin) newcomer nomination rights (2023 round 2) cash (1 billion won) to recruit reserve free agent catcher Park Dong-won and even tried to sign a long-term contract, but after the Stove League was held, he gave it to the LG Twins. 

Former general manager Jang Jeong-seok’s request for back money during negotiations with Park Dong-kwon was the decisive factor in missing the player, but it is true that the administrative power of the club was on the cutting board because personnel management is also the competence of the organization. 

Ten days after the trade was concluded, Kim Tae-gun’s agent, Park Hee-jin, Brion Company team leader, and KIA operation team manager Kwon Yoon-min met for a long-term contract. At that time, only Kim Tae-gun’s side presented the condition. 

Up to this point, the ‘speed battle’ flowed. However, KIA’s response was delayed, and the negotiating table was not set for a while. KIA should also keep in mind contracts with existing players. The team’s main players, Kim Sun-bin and Choi Hyung-woo, also get free agency qualifications after the 2023 season. KIA has no choice but to be cautious as long-term contract with Kim Tae-gun is actually breaking the first tape of Stove League.  

Negotiations, which had been lulled, resumed on the 15th. At this meeting, which was also attended by Shim Jae-hak, KIA also presented conditions. However, the negotiations did not work out. This means that the price difference is huge. 

From the beginning, Agent Kim Tae-gun set a fairly high percentage of the total amount as an option and presented the terms of the contract. Usually, players want as much guaranteed money as possible. 

Kim Tae-goon obtained his first free agency qualification after the 2019 season, but his invincibility was prolonged as he struggled with the transfer. Eventually, after his value fell significantly, he signed a contract with the original club, NC Dinos, for a total of 1.3 billion won (period of 4 years). 

The Lotte Giants, who wanted Kim Tae-gun, turned to a prospect trade. NC had Yang Eui-ji, the number one catcher in the league. The market and team situation turned against Kim Tae-goon, and in the end, he had to receive a lower ransom compared to the regular free agent catcher contract. 

For that reason, it seems that the agent considered the total amount the most important for this long-term contract with KIA. It means that the priority is for players to be properly recognized for their value. Rather, the reason why the player side increased the option ratio can be interpreted as considering the situation of KIA, which has many internal reserve free agents.

Currently, 7 out of 10 clubs’ main catchers have signed contracts worth more than 4 billion won. From Kim Tae-gun’s point of view, the best scenario is to remain at the KIA, where he can definitely play as a starter.

However, it is not that the club is holding the initiative. When Kim Tae-goon is an internal player, it is best to sign a long-term contract. You never know what will happen in Stove League. It also means that it is difficult to predict the catcher’s movement.

In particular, negotiations become complicated when a player that a club points out for a free agency contract or trade acquisition becomes entangled with other players belonging to the same agency. Right now, Brion Company has not only Kim Tae-goon, but also another reserve free agent catcher, Kim Min-shik. Variables may increase as many players usually sign contracts with new agencies after the regular season ends. 

Coach Kim Jong-guk praised the effect of Kim Tae-gun’s addition, saying, “It seems that pitchers who work well with experienced catchers have become psychologically comfortable.” Kim Tae-gun is also showing a high contribution to victory in his at bat, recording a batting average of 0.429 (6 hits in 14 at-bats) in the 5 games he played last week. The tax effect is clear. 

Kim Tae-gun also hoped that a long-term contract would come true quickly. He can’t help but be concerned about being late in the negotiation process. Both clubs and agents do not want players to be affected by contract issues. Currently, Shim Jae-hak, head of the KIA, is abroad for a field trip to Jeon Hoon-ji during the spring camp. When he returns home, the third meeting is expected to take place.

I thought the season was out for ‘Internal oblique muscle rupture’… ‘165km’ Japanese monster starts bullpen pitching → PS Is it a trump card?

No Comments

 Rocky Sasaki (Chiba Lotte Marines), who is being reborn as the next-generation ‘ace’ representing Nippon Professional Baseball, is showing insane resilience. He didn’t seem likely to see him on the mound all season, even until an injury took him off the line, but he’s already pitched in the bullpen for the second time.

Japanese multiple media such as ‘Daily Sports’, ‘Nikkan Sports’, and ‘Sports Hochi’ reported on the 29th (Korean time) the news of Roki Sasaki’s bullpen pitching.먹튀검증

Sasaki, who was selected by Chiba Lotte in the first round of the 2019 Nippon Professional Baseball Rookie Draft, had the best year last year. Sasaki caught the fans’ eyes just by spraying his best 164 km fast ball, and quickly became the league’s top pitcher by achieving a ‘perfect game’.

The only regret was ‘durability’. Sasaki struggled a bit due to a blistering injury at the end of the first half and physical problems in the second half, and the first 10 wins of his career were delayed until later, but after leaving an impressive record with 9 wins and 4 losses and an average ERA of 2.02, he enjoyed the joy of being on the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team. He pitched in 2 games and recorded 1 win, 0 loss and ERA of 3.52, helping the Japanese national team to lift the championship trophy.

After stepping on the professional stage, Sasaki participated in the most matches last year and accumulated experience in international competitions. Sasaki showed his potential to sweep various indicators of the Pacific League, such as breaking his personal best speed (previously 164km) this year to 165km, and stepping on the first 100 strikeouts in the Pacific and Central Leagues in just 11 games.

But this year, the problem was ‘injury’. Like last year, Sasaki had a hiatus of about a month this year due to ‘blisters’. On the 24th of last month, in a face-to-face confrontation with the Softbank Hawks, Sasaki pitched 93 pitches, 4 hits, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts and 1 run (1 earned) in 6 innings. After struggling with it, he is unable to enter the game. This time it’s an internal oblique injury.

At that time, Sasaki’s highest speed in the Softbank match was only 160 km. It wasn’t a slow ball by any means, but it was far from Sasaki’s usual appearance. And the next day, Sasaki was erased from the first team, and according to local media outlets such as ‘Daily Sports’, coach Masato Yoshii said, “Sasaki’s left internal oblique muscle (problem) was erased.”

Next, coach Masato Yoshii explained, “I felt a little pain while dealing with the last batter, and it seems that the pain got worse as I threw 4 more pitches and returned to the bench.” If the symptoms persist, the possibility of despair this season has also risen,” he said, hinting at the possibility of a season out.

However, Sasaki’s recovery is unexpectedly good. He may return to the first team before the regular season is over. According to Nikkan Sports, coach Yoshii said, “(The catcher) is standing, but it is already the second time he has thrown. Since he was able to throw a fairly strong ball from the bullpen, pitching practice will begin with the catcher sitting.” Sasaki threw a total of 20 pitches in the second group on the 27th.

He declined to comment on the exact timing of his return, as he is highly likely to recur in the case of my oblique muscle. Director Yoshii said, “If the rehabilitation staff say ‘OK’, I’m going to upload it. For now, I’ll think about it after the ‘OK’ sign.” In response, ‘Sports Hochi’ added, “In short matches, Sasaki becomes a trump card.”

Currently, the Chiba Lotte Marines are running second in the Pacific League. The gap with Softbank in third place has widened to some extent. Even if Sasaki fails to return within the regular season, there is no problem with fall baseball. Therefore, he can put in a short game and become a great force in the first and final stages of the Pacific League Climax Series. At the time of his departure, “two months at the earliest” was expected, but it is really momentum to return to the mound in two months.

FA→Trade→Fracture of misfortune… How much longer do we have to wait for Hanwha?

No Comments

“I need to stay a little longer”

I just started my comeback. However, it is expected that it will take a little more time to return to the first team stage.먹튀검증

Hanwha Eagles veteran outfielder Lee Myung-gi (36) exercised his first free agent rights in his life, leaving 23 RBIs and 5 stolen bases without a home run with a batting average of .260, on-base percentage of .331, and slugging percentage of .317 in 94 games last year when he was a NC Dinos player. Negotiations were sluggish, and in the end, he wore a Hanwha uniform in a sign-and-trade method. Hanwha acquired infielder Cho Hyun-jin and catcher Lee Jae-yong while handing over the 7th round pick for the 2024 KBO draft.

For Hanwha, whose batting average for the second hitter last year was .219, which was the lowest in the league, Lee Myung-gi’s joining was welcome. Lee Myeong-gi is a veteran hitter with 1099 hits in 1022 games. He has a career batting average of .306, on-base percentage of .367, and slugging percentage of .391 with 28 home runs, 323 RBIs and 108 stolen bases.

Lee Myung-gi joined Hanwha with a new mindset. Lee Myung-ki, who had 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base without a home run after playing in 3 games with the opening of this year, went out as a runner on 1st base in the top of the 5th inning and attempted to steal 2nd base in the match against SSG Landers held at home in Daejeon on April 7th. But I thought this would lead to an unexpected injury. Lee Myung-gi, who suffered a fracture in his right ankle while sliding, had to go on the operating table. At the time, Hanwha said, “I was diagnosed with 4-5 months to finish rehabilitation.”

Now, almost five months have passed, Lee Myung-gi is stretching his comeback. On the 25th, Lee Myung-gi, who announced his return to action in the Futures League match against Goyang Heroes (Kiwoom Heroes Futures Team), appeared in 3 games and marked a batting average of .250 (2 hits in 8 at-bats) and 2 RBIs.

When will Lee Myung-gi return to the first team stage? Hanwha coach Choi Won-ho is still making cautious gestures. “Lee Myeong-gi needs to stay a little longer,” said coach Choi Won-ho, who said, “Lee Myung-gi is going out as a designated hitter, but he is not in 100% condition right now.”

Hanwha is now mired in a seven-game losing streak. Above all, the stagnation of the team batting line is getting longer. Hanwha, which is at the bottom with a team batting average of .239, also has a team batting average of .229 in August, which is the last among 10 clubs. To the extent that they are envisioning a ‘defensive lineup’ in the future. Manager Choi Won-ho said, “Recently, the batting pace has fallen a lot.” “There is a way for the bench to intervene than in the past as a way to increase scoring power, but basically, you have to go on base to intervene. At present, the mound is stabilized a little more to concede points. We are thinking that lowering the rate is better with probability. We will operate in that direction.”

In this situation, if Lee Myeong-gi, who boasts a career batting average of 30%, joins the team as soon as possible, it will help Hanwha’s batting line. It is not yet known when Lee Myeong-gi will return to the first team, but he is announcing that his return is getting closer little by little through his recent appearance in the Futures League. Soon, the time will come when Hanwha’s trade numbers will shine.

Hyunjin Ryu’s fastball is fake? There is a special secret, there was a special sexual reason for the arrest of the turtle

No Comments

 Elbow ligament reconstruction surgery (Tommy John surgery) is selected as a relatively conquered field. The elbow is less complex than the shoulder. Of course, long-term rehabilitation of more than one year is required, but the possibility of a comeback is high. There are players who even receive two hits and still throw them.

There is a common notion that Tommy John surgery “retains faster after surgery.” Not all cases are like this, but there are quite a few such examples. There are two reasons. First of all, I can throw a ball without the pain I felt before the surgery. It has a great influence on the psychological part of the player. The second is to strengthen the elbow as well as other parts of the body while undergoing long-term rehabilitation for more than a year. It goes without saying that a faster ball comes from a healthier body.스포츠토토

So, it is true that Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto) also attracted interest and expectations with an increase in arrests. Even taking into account the second surgery he received in his mid-30s, there was a prospect that his restraint would rise slightly. In 2022, right before his surgery, Hyun-jin Ryu’s four-seam fastball average velocity was 89.3 miles per hour (143.7 km). 2019, which is remembered as Ryu Hyun-jin’s peak season, was 90.7 miles (146 km). Prospects emerged that Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent surgery, would continue to pitch well even if he recovered to an average of 90 miles (144.8 km).

However, in conclusion, the effect of such an increase in restraint has not yet been seen. Ryu Hyun-jin is recording lower numbers than last year, let alone the 2019 level, in the 5 games he played after his return this year. If you find your senses and your body is more relaxed, there is a possibility that this restraint will rise, but for now, it is not so far.

I see it as a mystery even locally. Buck Martinez, a veteran commentator for ‘Sportsnet’, a Canadian sports network and broadcaster hosted by Toronto, said, “Usually, a pitcher who has returned from Tommy John surgery comes back with restraint first. But Ryu Hyun-jin, command came first.” It is the opposite of other pitchers. Ryu Hyun-jin said, “I think the speed will rise a little more,” but it may be a conservative point of view to see that there is no dramatic increase in speed this year.

However, there is another view of Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-seam. It is an analysis that he is different from the four-seam he threw before. Aden Zwelling, a columnist or panelist of ‘Sportsnet’, presented an interesting analysis of Ryu Hyun-jin, who started the game against Cleveland on the 27th (Korean time). It is said that Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-seam trajectory has changed from before. “The sinker or two-seam movement has gotten stronger,” Zwelling concluded.

Zwelling presupposes, “There is no doubt about Ryu Hyun-jin’s command,” and “Ryu Hyun-jin is throwing a ball that is classified as a four-seam in the pitch tracking program, but there are two-seam and sinker movements. Talk to Pete Walker (Toronto pitching coach). But he also said it was related to two-seam and sinker.” Coach Walker, who has been watching Hyun-jin Ryu since 2020, also saw that Hyun-jin Ryu’s four-seam movement was a little different from last year.

“This is what he went through early in his (Major League) career,” Zwelling said. In fact, Ryu Hyun-jin threw a sinker in a small percentage during his Dodgers days. He hit his pitching percentage of 15.8% in 2013 and a career high of 24.2% in 2014. However, as Zwelling explained, the use rate was low after shoulder surgery, and after 10% use in 2020, it virtually disappeared from Ryu Hyun-jin’s repertoire.

The sinker is a little slower than the four-seam, but it gives movement in front of the home plate and induces hitters to hit or miss. Usually, the left-handed sinker curves slightly outside the right-handed hitter and into the left-handed hitter’s body at the last minute. Players who are good at using sinkers sometimes immobilize batters with border line pitching, and sometimes induce misses by shouting at them.

If you look at Ryu Hyun-jin’s tracking data, you can see that it’s not just a sound that comes out of your senses. In 2022, Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-seam drop was 21.3 inches. But this year, the drop of the four-seam decreased, and on the contrary, the horizontal movement increased. It was taken about halfway between the sinker he threw before and the four-seam he threw last year.

‘Statcast’, which saw this, also started to classify Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitches again from the 28th. Originally, only four-seam, changeup, curveball, and cutter were caught, but sinkers were also classified. Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-seam drop width is 22.3 inches (56.6 cm) and horizontal movement is 12.5 inches (31.8 cm), while the sinker’s drop width is 25.3 inches (64.2 cm) and horizontal movement is 17 inches (43.2 cm), which is clearly different. . In other words, many of the four-seams caught so far were ‘fake four-seams’.

“Hyunjin Ryu’s sinker provides a really effective option to induce a ground ball when you need to move away from a right-handed hitter and save yourself in adverse situations,” Zwelling said. “And Hyunjin Ryu is a player who can throw a changeup perfectly efficiently.” He analyzed that the options against right-handed hitters have become more diverse. It is said that the pattern of running away with a sinker and running away more with a changeup and falling makes it easier for right-handed batters to play outside.

As Statcast began to classify sinkers and four-seams, Ryu Hyun-jin’s average speed of four-seams was corrected to 88.5 miles (142.4 km). Sinker’s average velocity is 88 miles (141.6 km). There is not much difference in speed, but the movement is subtly different, so it has become a repertoire that opponents have no choice but to pay attention to. Ryu Hyun-jin is back as a feature in ‘Five Peach’. Perhaps the proportion of sinkers will increase further in the future.

“If you win 88, you will be ranked first” Gyeong-yeop Yeom’s championship plan faced the first crisis with an unexpected 3 consecutive losses

No Comments

Remaining 36 games, 23 goals win. This is the number left until LG coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop’s ’88 win plan’. The plan seemed smooth, but now things are a little different.스포츠토토

The LG Twins faced a hurdle ahead of the last three games in August. At one time, an overwhelming lead was expected, pushing the second place by 8.0 games, but it was caught in just three days with a sweeping defeat in three consecutive matches. The gap with second place kt wiz decreased from 7.5 games to 4.5 games. Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said that he would focus on whether LG could build the number of wins he was aiming for rather than the result of a match against a specific team, but the unexpected 3-game losing streak made this plan even more difficult.

Head coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop said, ahead of the game against Lotte in Jamsil on the 24th, “We need to reduce the number of games that are unfortunate. If we win 88, we think there is a high probability of winning first place. The remaining 6 games with kt are important, but the most important thing is whether we can achieve our goal. It will be reduced. We have to go together as one of the remaining 40 games. A 50% win rate plus 4 wins (24 wins) is 88 wins. We can do it.”

At this point, the goal for the remaining season is 24 wins and 16 losses in 40 games (0.600 win rate). The match against Lotte on the 24th was won 3-1.

LG had a win rate of 0.631 with 65 wins, 2 draws and 38 losses by the 24th. At the time, it was 7.5 games away from the second place kt Wiz (59 wins, 2 draws, 47 losses, win rate 0.557). Although kt’s momentum is scary, it is impossible to ignore the gap that has already occurred. According to the baseball myth, ‘It takes a month to catch up with the 3rd game’, LG’s first place in the regular season seemed certain.

The NC Dinos and Changwon three-game series created the current situation (?). In the game on the 25th, LG lost 1-14 to NC with Eric Peddy in the lead. Starter Choi Won-tae allowed 11 runs (9 earned runs) with 15 hits in 4 innings. 11 runs without a home run. Jung Woo-young, Park Myeong-geun, Kim Jin-seong, and Choi Dong-hwan blocked the remaining four innings.

In the game on the 26th, Ko Woo-seok, who finished the match, was shaken after being on base after being hit by the referee, and lost 5-7. Since it was a game that was ahead until the start of the ninth inning, Yoo Young-chan, Baek Seung-hyun, Ham Deok-joo, Kim Jin-seong, and Pil Seung-jo all appeared, but in the end, only the bullpen was consumed without gaining anything. On the 27th, the bullpen had to block 9 innings as starter Lim Chan-gyu was ejected for a ‘headshot’ in the 1st inning. In the process, Baek Seung-hyun and Yoo Young-chan had a two-day fight, and Kim Jin-seong had a three-day fight.

In the meantime, kt swept three consecutive away matches against the Lotte Giants and gained momentum. In the second half, with an amazing record of 25 wins, 6 losses, and an odds rate of 0.806, SSG Landers was brought down to third place, and now even LG has become a threat.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop laughed before the game on the 18th, saying, “Now kt is more stable than us” and “I thought it would not be in the bottom ranks, but it is coming up so well.” Still, he had a face that said he could afford it. Of course, the difference is still not small. Still, it can be nerve-wracking that the gap quickly narrowed while kt’s momentum continued.

LG needs 23 wins to achieve 88 wins in the remaining 36 games. Converted to win rate, it is 0.639, which is higher than the current win rate of 0.613. This is a figure that can only be achieved by exerting more effort than the ones that have been run so far. Of course, you don’t have to win 88 games to rank first in the regular season. Even if LG only wins 85, kt has to win 24-9 in the remaining 33 games to change the ranking.

If 88 wins are achieved as planned without a draw, LG can finish the regular season with 88 wins, 2 draws and 54 losses with an odds ratio of 0.620. After the KBO League became a 10-team system, the only case in which a team that won 88 wins failed to rank first in the regular season was SK Wyverns (SSG) in 2019. The win rate was exactly the same as 1st place Doosan with 88 wins, 1 draw and 55 losses, but it was pushed out of the opponent’s record and suddenly became 2nd place. SK couldn’t even climb the Korean series, probably because of the sense of loss at this time. This is a page from director Yeom Kyung-yeop’s ‘Dark History’.

Coincidentally, LG and kt will play a fateful three-game series in Suwon a week later. Until then, depending on the results of the 6 matches, the atmosphere of the 3 consecutive matches may change. So far, the two teams have won 5 each in 10 matches.

Recent 3G 5 mistakes, only 5 points for non-booking… What happens when Ryu Hyun-jin comes out? Toronto’s Defensive Hole

No Comments

 If it weren’t for the defensive mistake, the first quality start (QS) of the season would have been possible. However, due to a series of mistakes, Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) had to be content with pitching 5 innings again. 스포츠토토

Ryu Hyun-jin started in the 2023 major league home game against the Cleveland Guardians held at the Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 27th (Korean time), and struggled with 4 hits (2 home runs) in 5 innings, no walks, 5 strikeouts and 3 runs (2 earned). . As Toronto won 8-3, Ryu Hyun-jin also won his third win (one loss) of the season. His season ERA rose from 1.89 to 2.25. 

Ryu Hyun-jin hit two solo home runs off Jose Ramirez in the 1st inning and Tyler Freeman in the 5th inning, but allowed 2 runs with 60 pitches until the 5th inning. Looking at the number of pitches, he seemed capable enough until the 6th or 7th inning, but failed to make a quality start due to a series of errors in the 6th inning. 

After getting a right-handed hit by leadoff hitter Cole Calhoun in the 6th inning, Ryu Hyun-jin threw a changeup outside the 3rd pitch to Ramirez, inducing a grounder to third base. It was fast with a batting speed of 106 miles (170.6 km), but third baseman Matt Chapman came to the front. If Chapman had caught it, he would have been 5-4-3 double play, but missed the batted ball. Due to Chapman’s catch error, the situation with no runners in the second out changed to 1st and 2nd base safely. 

However, Ryu Hyun-jin did not waver and led the shortstop ground ball to the next hitter, Oscar Gonzalez, with a low-falling changeup on the first pitch. But here another mistake occurred. This time it was shortstop Santiago Espinal. He attempted a backhand catch, but the ball hit the glove and rolled sideways. The bases were safely loaded in an instant as the batted ball, which could catch at least the leading runner on first base or expect a 6-4-3 double batting, was another error. 

In the end, Ryu Hyun-jin had to go down the mound with 70 pitches. Garcia, who has a better strikeout ability than Ryu Hyun-jin, has already been put in. As Garcia conceded a run by pushing off the first hitter with a ball that hit the body, Ryu Hyun-jin’s conceded point was 3 points with one unearned point added. Afterwards, Garcia struck out three batters in a row and kept Ryu Hyun-jin’s victory by blocking no additional runs, but consecutive defensive errors were disappointing innings. 

Both Chapman and Espinal are good defensive players. In particular, Chapman boasts of three Gold Glove careers, but the day Ryu Hyun-jin comes out, he is particularly lethargic. In the game against the Cincinnati Reds on the 21st, Chapman cut the ball during the relay play process when Noel B Marte’s left fielder flew in the second inning with 2nd out, 1st and 3rd base. there is a bar 

Toronto has 61 team errors, at least 9th out of 30 clubs. It is a team with above-average defense, but on the day Ryu Hyun-jin comes out, there are many mistakes. Ryu Hyun-jin allowed 2 runs in 5 innings both against the Chicago Cubs on the 14th and against the Cincinnati on the 21st, but both were unearned. In the game against the Cubs, there was a catch error by first baseman Brandon Belt in the first inning, and in the second inning against Cincinnati, Chapman followed by a throwing error by first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 

Until the match against Cleveland on this day, Ryu Hyun-jin has not received any defensive help with 5 errors in the last 3 games. Of the last 7 runs, the earned run is 2 points, and the unearned run is 5 points. Ryu Hyun-jin, whose pitching count increased despite active support from the other line but lack of support from the defense, was satisfied with pitching 5 innings in the last 3 games in a row.

Right-hander Shin Jung-hwan, second-year Samsung, first starter victory in a thrilling debut… 9-1 victory over LG

No Comments

Right-hander Shin Jeong-hwan, a second-year Samsung Lions player, reported his first starting win in his pro debut.스포츠토토 

In the Futures League home game against LG held at Gyeongsan Ball Park on the 27th, Shin Jung-hwan started and pitched well, throwing 6 hits, 2 walks, 6 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings. He achieved his first quality start in his debut and tasted the joy of winning for the first time on his professional stage.

“The probability of success is low → science has advanced” Ohtani, who was recommended for surgery, will choose what to choose

Will Ohtani (29, LA Angels) undergo surgery? There are many opinions about surgery.

On the 26th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, explained, “If Ohtani needs Tommy John surgery, he can choose to have surgery right away to accelerate his return schedule.”

Ohtani started Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds on the 24th. But he came down after 1⅓ innings. Something was wrong with his arm. Right away, I received a detailed examination such as an MRI, and the news of the blue sky was delivered. He has a torn medial collateral ligament in his right elbow.

This injury requires Tommy John surgery. Recovery is also possible through rehabilitation. However, most pitchers opt for surgery.토토사이트

Ohtani also has experience. He was on the operating table in October 2018 and was unable to get on the mound for the 2019 season in the aftermath. It wasn’t until July 2020 that he was able to pitch as a pitcher. As such, recovery takes at least a year.

The Angels team is cautious. It’s been two days since he was diagnosed and he has yet to decide whether or not to have surgery. He will make a decision through a double cross check.

According to Chunichi Sports, general manager Perry Minassian informed the situation that the doctor recommended surgery.

If so, what is the local opinion? The New York Post pointed out, “There are more cases of non-recovery in the second surgery than resurgence. However, there are also successful cases such as Nathan Ivaldi (Texas Rangers) and Jameson Tyyon (Chicago Cubs).”

Sporting News reported, “Ohtani may avoid surgery. According to Science Direct, it can be treated with plasma injections (PRP), which can help repair ligament damage. Ohtani was diagnosed with various types of collateral ligament sprains in 2017. I had these injections in 2018 and 2018, but later needed surgery.” “If surgery is required, there are some risks. According to Dr. Andrew Kosgaria of Johns Hopkins Orthopedic Surgery, a second Tommy John surgery is generally not as successful as the first,” he explained the direction for the two options.

Mets manager Bugs Showalter, who was the enemy general that day, said, “Just because he underwent two surgeries won’t prevent him from recovering. Science is advancing. He can definitely recover and come back. And I hope Ohtani will be revived. It’s for the sake of the Agu world.” expressed their views.
