Ryu Hyun-jin returns, mastering the big league’s sharp-edged pitch and offering eight-colored breaking balls.

Ace returns to Hanwha

Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned to the KBO, is throwing the ball vigorously during the Hanwha Eagles’ own practice game held at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 7th.

Ryu Hyun-jin (Hanwha Eagles) showed off his sharp pitch control and colorful breaking balls that have swept the Major League Baseball (MLB) for 11 years in the Blue and White match.

Ryu Hyun-jin started the game against Blue and White held at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 7th and allowed one hit and one walk in three innings while allowing one run.The number of strikeouts was limited to three.

46 balls were thrown and 30 were strikes.

According to the pitch analysis data distributed by the Hanwha team, Ryu Hyun-jin threw 4 pitches: fastball (23), cut fastball (4), changeup (9), and curve (10).

Ryu Hyun-jin returns to KBO

Praise that he was the best Ryu Hyun-jin came naturally.

Ryu Hyun-jin put it in the catcher’s mitt exactly where he wanted it without any effort.Only in the second inning did a few balls come out of the strike zone, but most of the balls had a certain landing range.

In the second inning, he threw a fastball (139 km/h) to Chae Eun-seong in the middle of the pitch, and was hit by a double that fell to the left line, and he also gave up a walk afterwards.With one out and 1st and 3rd bases, Jaewon Lee allowed a sacrifice fly to center field, resulting in 1 run.

The highest speed of the fastball was 143 km/h (144 km/h according to team measurement and YouTube TV measurement).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed with Hanwha at the end of last month and immediately joined the spring camp set up in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, pitched in practice for the first time after two bullpen pitches and one live pitch (standing the batter and throwing like a real game).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who will make his return to the KBO League after 12 years in the regular season opening game against the LG Twins on the 23rd, announced that he is improving his condition smoothly with just over 15 days left.

Both velocity and number of pitches per inning were appropriate.

He also adapted smoothly to the Automatic Ball Decision System (ABS) introduced this season.The fact that he took 10 waterfall curves with large drops last year appears to be related to the ABS test.

There is a reputation that ABS gives more strikes to breaking balls that fall vertically rather than to breaking balls that bend laterally.Therefore, pitchers who are good at throwing curveballs can benefit from ABS.

Ryu Hyun-jin easily handled the KBO League official ball, which he picked up again after 12 years, despite the gap of years.

It is no longer surprising that Ryu Hyun-jin’s finger sense is so outstanding that he can quickly learn breaking balls.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who learned the change-up from Hanwha senior Koo Dae-seong and SBS sports commentator and armed himself with a special move, moved to the United States in 2013 and equipped himself with a cut fastball as a new weapon.

Last year, after returning from a year of rehabilitation after elbow surgery, he showed off the essence of speed control with his curves. 스포츠토토
