Canadian Sportsnet argued on the 13th (Korean time), “Even if Alex Manoa or Ryu Hyun-jin return, it is unknown whether they will throw well.” “Toronto seems better to find a starting pitcher.”
He also said that even if he is not a Ryu Hyun-jin or Manoa-level player, it is enough to have a player who can rotate in the starting rotation.
The media analyzed, “It is not necessary to have a pitcher who will play a role as a signboard, but we need resources that can last until Ryu Hyun-jin is ready.”
Ryu Hyun-jin has been focusing on rehabilitation for the past year after undergoing surgery to joint ligaments in his left elbow in June of last year. In particular, he is on a smooth course by digesting pitching in the bullpen last month, and plans to return to the big leagues after going through a process such as live pitching and minor league appearances. The original plan was to come back around the end of the 7th inning, but it can be seen as early August if you catch enough.
After debuting in 2021, Manoa has established a starting axis. He had a good record of 16 wins and 7 losses with an earned run average of 2.24 in 196⅔ innings in 31 games last year. He was recognized for his potential to the extent that he finished third in the American League Cy Young Award voting.
The problem is this year. fell vertically. He played 58 innings in 13 games, but had the worst record of 1 win, 7 losses and an earned run average of 6.36. Eventually, the club sent Manoa down to the Rookie League. No one knows when it will come back.
For this reason, the Toronto starters will have a hard time until July without Ryu Hyun-jin and Manoa. Therefore, there is an argument that reinforcement of selection is necessary.
Sportsnet picked candidates who could fill the gap in the Toronto starting lineup. Here, the name of former Samsung pitcher Ben Lively (31, Cincinnati) came out.
Lively played for Samsung from 2019 to 2021 and is well known to Korean fans. He was called up after signing with Cincinnati this year and stood on the big league mound for the first time since 2019. He is recording an average of 4.21 earned run average with 3 wins and 4 losses in 7 games (5 starts) in 36⅓ innings.
The media said, “Considering that Lively has more than a year left until the annual salary adjustment, he may need a bigger price than other candidates. It is also having a good effect on Cincinnati.” You don’t have to,” he predicted.
“He’s a slow sinker averaging 91.6 mph, but has extensions that help alleviate that problem. He also throws six different pitches, which is different than the three he had before heading to Korea.” I also left a review.
Good reviews followed. The media said, “Lively still has a (minor league) option and has performed relatively well this season. He is a pitcher who throws strikes wherever he goes.” there is,” he predicted.
