After the trade deadline on the 1st of next month,
the return schedule for Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays, photo) was delayed.
According to Sportsnet on the 25th (Korean time), Toronto coach John Schneider said, “It is highly likely that Ryu Hyun-jin will not pitch in the game against the Los Angeles Angels this week,” ahead of the away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and said, “I will play a simulation game.” It is known that Ryu Hyun-jin will be put into the game against the Angels on the 29th after finishing bullpen pitching, but coach Schneider hinted that he should be cautious.
After undergoing elbow ligament reconstructive surgery called Tommy John Surgery last year, Ryu Hyun-jin devoted himself to rehabilitation for about 13 months, and started playing on the 5th. On the 22nd, he blocked 3 hits (2 homers) and 2 runs in 6 innings against the New York Mets minor league Triple-A team and received a passing score. Strikeout took 5 away. Coach Schneider judged that a simulation game against teammates was more effective in raising the sense of actual play than minor league rehabilitation.
There was a prospect that Hyun-jin Ryu would face off against Shohei Ohtani of the Angels on the 29th. The MLB trade deadline is the 1st of next month. Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to enter the 40-man roster after the 1st.안전놀이터

I take a break on the 28th, but from the 29th to the 14th of August, we will continue our 17-game series without missing a single day. They will play against the Los Angeles Angels on the 29th to 31st, the Baltimore Orioles on the 1st to 4th of August, the Boston Red Sox on the 5th to 7th, the Cleveland Guardians on the 8th to 11th, and the Chicago Cubs on the 12th to 14th.
