Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) has become an ‘Arirang Ball’ pitcher.온라인바카라
Ryu Hyun-jin started against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada on Sunday (July 27), allowing three runs (two earned) in five innings to earn his third win of the season.
On the day, Ryu drew rave reviews for cooking hitters with his curveball, which was particularly spectacular. His curveball was clocked at 104 kilometers per hour. Andres Jimenez struck out swinging on Ryu’s “arirang ball” in the top of the fourth inning. It is the slowest curveball in MLB this season. Jimenez had struck out against Ryu earlier in the inning.
After watching, baseball analyst Rob Friedman said, “Most pitchers look at how fast they’re throwing. Ryu sees how slow he throws,” said baseball analyst Rob Friedman.
“It’s a testament to the type of finesse pitcher Ryu has been throughout his long MLB career, and it’s a good sign for Toronto to see him still at the top of his game,” wrote DailyHive.
Meanwhile, Ryu is expected to take the mound against the Colorado Rockies on September 2 at 9:40 a.m. at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA.
Coors Field is known as the graveyard of pitchers. The high altitude and lack of air resistance encourage long balls.
In total, Hyun-jin Ryu visited Coors Field six times during his time with the Los Angeles Dodgers, going 1-4 with a 7.09 ERA.
The last time he pitched there was in 2019. He took the loss in late June after giving up seven runs in four innings, but bounced back a month later with six innings of three-hit, one-strikeout ball. It will be his first time on the mound at Coors Field in more than four years.
