1 point ERA that has never happened since Ryu Hyun-jin… Will Ryu Hyun-jin reproduce it

If you look at his skills and skills, which he showed competitiveness in the Major League Baseball (MLB) until last year, he is no different from an active major leaguer.

However, considering the age when he is in his late 30s with four surgeries, Hanwha should now use Ryu Hyun-jin “to cherish and cherish.” 스포츠토토

This is why it is difficult for Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned to the KBO League for the first time in 12 years, to harvest “accumulated record titles” such as multiple wins and strikeouts.

The winning rate for players with 10 or more wins is not proportional to the pitcher’s ability.

Even Ryu Hyun-jin threw 182 ⅔ innings in 2012, his last season in the KBO League, and pitched an overwhelming pitch to strike out 210 but won nine games and lost nine games, with a winning rate of only 50%.

In reality, Ryu Hyun-jin’s most challenging title is the ERA.

Ryu Hyun-jin won the ERA title twice in the KBO League in 2006 (2.23) and 2010 (1.82), and moved to the U.S. and became the first player to achieve the first-ever KBO League-MLB ERA with a 2.32 ERA for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2019.

The baseball community predicts that if Ryu Hyun-jin stays healthy throughout this season, the ERA title will be worth aiming at.

Ryu Hyun-jin got an opportunity to challenge the “one-point ERA,” the last milestone he made in the KBO League 14 years ago.

Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho hinted at the possibility of challenging the “one-point ERA” by saying that Ryu Hyun-jin is a higher-quality player than Eric Peddy (former NC Dinos, current MLB Chicago White Sox).

“In terms of MLB standards, Ryu Hyun-jin is higher than Feddy. He will throw well if his body is okay. It is questionable whether Feddy will play the same ball in MLB, even if he is the top-notch player in Korea. The level of Ryu who threw stably in MLB is higher now,” Choi said.

Peddy won 20 wins, 6 losses and 209 strikeouts with a 2.00 ERA last season, winning three pitchers with multiple wins, ERA and strikeouts.

Peddy challenged for his first one-point ERA since Ryu Hyun-jin in 2010, but unfortunately missed the record.

Swiffer, a type of modified slider thrown by Peddy, drew attention, but the most difficult type of pitch for KBO league hitters to target is the two-seam fastball.

Ryu Hyun-jin is a player who throws a modified fastball that is higher than Fedi.

An official from Hanwha, who watched Ryu Hyun-jin’s bullpen pitching, also predicted, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s cut fastball will feel like a ‘magoo’ level to KBO league batters.”

The Hanwha bullpen catcher, who received Ryu Hyun-jin’s first bullpen pitch on the 23rd of last month, described the cut fastball as a slider, which is hard to see in the KBO league.

In addition, the curve that Ryu Hyun-jin used well after returning from rehabilitation last year is expected to shine even more with the introduction of the Automatic Ball Judgment System (ABS).

In the field, it is expected that the type of pitch that moves up and down, such as a curve, will be judged advantageously.

Yang Hyun-jong of the Kia Tigers said, “HYUNJIN’s curveball is very wide. Of course, all pitches are excellent, but the introduction of ABS will give him an advantage.”

Ryu Hyun-jin, who is scheduled to take the mound in the opening game against the LG Twins at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 23rd, played bullpen pitching and live pitching twice at a camp in Okinawa, Japan.

Ryu Hyun-jin returned home on the 4th and will make his first appearance in a practice game through the team’s Cheongbaek match on the 7th, and will take the mound twice in the KBO exhibition game to conduct a final inspection.

Considering the interval between pitches, Ryu Hyun-jin’s return to the exhibition game is expected to be against the KIA Tigers in Daejeon on the 12th.
