Reporter Lee Myung-dong = There is a prospect that Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) will win 3 wins in the 2023 Major League (MLB) season.
ESPN predicted on the 7th (Korean time) that Ryu Hyun-jin will record 3 wins and 4 losses in the MLB 2023 season. The Toronto Blue Jays saw that they had the 8th strongest starting lineup out of 30 clubs.
The 1st to 3rd picks are predicted to be solid. The Toronto starting lineup, which Chris Bassett joined from the New York Mets in December of last year, was evaluated as having three potential 20-win starters. While naming Kevin Gaussman as the 23-win pitcher, he named Alec Manoa and Chris Bassitt as the 22-win starters. The expected multipliers of the leading 1st to 3rd starters all exceeded 20 wins.
Jose Berrios, who is expected to compete with Ryu Hyun-jin for the 4th and 5th starting positions, has 13 wins, Yusei Kikuchi has 7 wins, Nate Pearson has 5 wins, and Mitch White has 2 wins.
Toronto was predicted to be ranked 8th out of 30 MLB teams. Among the 15 American League (AL) teams to which Toronto belongs, it was fourth after the New York Yankees (1st), Houston Astros (6th) and Chicago White Sox (7th).
ESPN questioned, “Can Ryu Hyun-jin return in the middle of the season as he wants?” and added, “This starting rotation is not only good, but (the player base) is deep.” 먹튀검증
Ryu Hyun-jin underwent an elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery) in mid-June of last year. Ryu Hyun-jin decided to go to the United States early on December 29 last year, saying, “I will only see and prepare for July. I will definitely return in July.”
After completing the 2019 season, Ryu Hyun-jin, who became a free agent (FA), signed a contract with Toronto for 4 years and 80 million dollars. In Toronto, Ryu Hyun-jin was active with an average ERA of 5-2 and 2.69 in 12 games in 2020. He won 14 games in 2021, although his earned run average rose to 4.37.
However, due to an elbow injury last year, he recorded 2 wins and 0 losses with an ERA of 5.67 in 6 games and missed the season.
ESPN selected the New York Yankees as a team with the MLB’s strongest starting lineup for the 2023 season. The Yankees expected Gerrit Cole, the “strikeout machine,” to win 23 victories, and Carlos Rodon of the Chicago White Sox in December last year to harvest 25 victories. Next, he named Nestor Cortes as the 20-win pitcher, Luis Severino with 18 wins, and Frankie Montas as the starting pitcher with 11 wins.
The strongest team in the National League (NL) was predicted to be the Milwaukee Brewers (2nd place) with Cy Young Award winner Corbin Burns (29, Milwaukee Brewers) in 2021. Next, he predicted the New York Mets (3rd), Atlanta Braves (4th) and Philadelphia Phillies (5th) as teams with strong starters.
