“If Manoa did well, he might have been less dependent on Ryu Hyun-jin”
“If Alec Manoa is resurrected, there is no need to rely on Ryu Hyun-jin.”
Canadian media Sportsnet explained the requirements for Toronto to advance properly in the second half on the 13th (Korean time). Toronto ended the first half in third place in the American League East with a record of 50-41. The wild card ranking is tied for second place.온라인카지노
Sportsnet first cited starting pitcher Manoa’s contribution. Manoa, who played his second season in the big leagues last year, quickly emerged as Toronto’s ace. He pitched 196⅔ innings in 31 games, posting a 16-7 record with a 2.24 earned run average.
But this year, Manoa went downhill. He appeared in 14 games and went 2-7 with an ERA of 5.91, disappointing the team. Eventually, Manoa was demoted to the minor leagues last month.
At least Toronto’s consolation was Manoa’s good pitch before returning to the big leagues. Manoa started in the away game against the Detroit Tigers on the 8th and made a good pitch with 5 hits, 8 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings.
Sportsnet said, “Manoa’s performance with 1 run in 6 innings before his return was encouraging, but there is no guarantee that he has returned to his previous form.” he criticized.
“A return to the big leagues was undoubtedly a step in the right direction, but Toronto isn’t sure what they’ll get from Manoa,” he said with a negative outlook.
Sportsnet also mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin. The media evaluated, “If Manoa is revived, Toronto will have five reliable starting pitchers, and there is no need to rely on Ryu Hyun-jin as more than a wild card or invest a lot of assets to recruit starting players at the trade deadline.”
Ryu Hyun-jin, who ended the season early after undergoing elbow ligament joint surgery in June of last year, is improving his condition through recent rehabilitation.
On the 5th, Ryu Hyun-jin recorded 4 hits, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in 3 innings in the Minor League Rookie League, and on the 8th, in Single A, he recorded 3 hits, 1 strikeout and no run in 4 innings in Single A.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s return is getting closer, but his entry into the starting lineup cannot be guaranteed. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has not been able to do his part for the past two years, is expected to compete with Manoa for the last spot in the rotation.
