(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Chang-Yong Shin =’Korean Monster’ Hyun-jin Ryu (34, Toroto Blue Jays) checked all the pitches that could be thrown in his first real match.

Rather than the results, he focused on increasing the number of pitches he planned and preparing for the regular season without a hitch.

Ryu Hyun-jin started a demonstration game against the Baltimore Orioles in the 2021 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) held at Dunedin TD Ball Park in Florida, USA on the 6th (Korean time), 2 innings, 1 hit (1 home run), 2 strikeouts, 1 walk, 1 run. Recorded.

The number of pitches was 30, and the highest limit for a four-seam fastball was 89.8 miles per hour (about 145 km).

Ryu Hyun-jin said in a non-face-to-face video interview with the reporter after finishing his first demonstration game, “I am preparing well as I have done so far.” “I threw 2 innings in the game, and 15 more in the bullpen, and then 3 innings. “We are preparing for the season well by increasing the number of pitches continuously.”

Ryu Hyun-jin blocked the first inning with a tripartite in 9 pitches, but allowed one home run (Pat Balaika) and one walk (Ramon Urias) in the second inning and showed a somewhat shaking.

Ryu Hyun-jin said, “It was good for the first game. There were a lot of strikes and I hit a home run, but that was a mistake. I think the batter hit it well. Overall, it was so good for the first start.”

He said, “The ball thrown similarly to the strike zone was judged to be a ball,” he said. “Except for one home run, there is no problem with the rest,” he showed a relaxed appearance.

Ryu Hyun-jin said, “I think the important thing in the demonstration game is the number of innings and pitches.” I prepared with the focus,” he said.

He said, “I threw all the pitches I can throw today,” he said. “There is no increase in pitches this season. However, we need to increase the number of pitches.”

Ryu Hyun-jin introduced that he prepared two bullpen pitching and two live pitching prior to the first appearance of the demonstration game on this day.

He said, “I prepared the same way as last year. There was no difficulty.”

When asked if there was a burden as the team’s ace in the unstable Toronto starter, Ryu Hyun-jin said, “There is not at all. There are many good pitchers on the team, whether it is the starter or the bullpen,” he said.

Ryu Hyun-jin said, “Because we have been breathing since last year’s spring camp, we are so familiar and comfortable with each other” about catcher Danny Jensen who took a breath on this day.

On the news that many Toronto prospects are asking for advice from Ryu Hyun-jin, he said, “Of course, if it comes to you, he will respond eagerly as you ask.” “You have to do it yourself,” he said.
