Ryu Hyun-jin will join his teammates for the first time

Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned to Hanwha on an eight-year deal worth up to 17 billion won, will join his teammates for the first time on Friday.

Ryu arrived at Gochinda Baseball Stadium in Okinawa, Japan, where Hanwha’s second spring training camp is being held, on the afternoon of the 23rd to meet with the team and complete individual training. Accompanied by his personal trainer, Jang Se-hong, Ryu warmed up by running and stretching, then played catch to prepare for his first bullpen pitch.

Ryu threw 45 pitches in the bullpen in front of general manager Son Hyuk, manager Choi Won-ho, pitching coach Park Seung-min, and personal trainer Jang Se-hong. He threw a mix of fastballs, sliders, changeups, and curves. After watching Ryu pitch out of the bullpen, manager Choi Won-ho said, “It’s good. It’s good,” Choi said with a smile.

Jung Woo-bin, a bullpen catcher who worked with Ryu, said, “The ball came in really straight. American pitches are different. 안전놀이터 Just by looking at his pitching form, it looks like he’s not 100 percent. Still, the ball came in straight and the angle of his changeup was good.”

When asked how he felt after the first training session, Ryu said, “I think it was good. Everyone was so happy to see me, so I think I was happy to be here,” he said.

As for his first bullpen pitch,

He said, “It was no problem at all because I’ve been preparing for it. I’ve been training indoors all this time, so I wanted to get outdoors as soon as possible, so I threw today as soon as I got here, and I think I did well.”

On the difference between Major League Baseball’s official ball and the KBO’s official ball, he said, “I think it’s a little bit heavier than the American ball. In Korea, I threw a few times with the Korean ball at the end of my personal training, but it still feels different,” he said.

The 24th was an off day for the Hanwha squad. Ryu Hyun-jin also enjoyed a honeyed rest and will play again on the 25th. “Ryu will not pitch out of the bullpen and will only do light training such as running catch,” a team official said.

Meanwhile, Ryu won the Rookie of the Year, Regular Season MVP and Pitcher’s Golden Glove in his debut year in 2006, winning titles in three categories – wins, ERA and strikeouts – and became one of the best pitchers in the KBO with a career record of 98 wins, 52 losses, one save, 1238 strikeouts and a 2.80 ERA.

In 2013,

He moved to the Major Leagues, where he has been a quality starter on the world’s biggest stage, posting a 78-48 record with one save, 934 strikeouts, and a 3.27 ERA through last year. He had his best season in 2019 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, 카지노사이트 추천 going 14-5 with 163 strikeouts and a 2.32 ERA, finishing second in the National League Cy Young Award voting.

“I think our team has the power to do well with the reinforcement of power and the growth of young players,” said Ryu, who will be wearing a Hanwha uniform again. “I promise to work hard with my teammates to show the fans baseball for as long as possible this season.”
