Ryu Hyun-jin wild card ‘excluded from roster’ also excluded from Toronto’s ‘commemorative video’

The fear of Ryu Hyun-jin being excluded from the postseason entry has become a reality.

Toronto announced the 26-man wild card roster ahead of the first game of the ‘2023 Major League’ Minnesota Twins and wild card series held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA on the 4th (Korean time). Ryu Hyun-jin’s name was excluded here.

Among the 26-man roster, 12 pitchers were named. Four starting pitchers have been confirmed: Kevin Gausman, Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, and Yusei Kikuchi. Ryu Hyun-jin, who played as a fifth starter at the end of the regular season, was eventually eliminated.

Catchers included Tyler Heinemann and Alejandro Kirk. The infielders included Brandon Belt, Bo Bichette, Cavern Biggio, Matt Chapman, Santiago Espinal, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Witt Merrifield, and Davis Schneider, and the outfielders included Cam Eden, Kevin Kiermaier, George Springer, and Dalton Basho.먹튀검증

Ryu Hyun-jin’s wild card exclusion this season was somewhat expected. Several Canadian media outlets had previously predicted that Ryu Hyun-jin would be excluded from the list for the wild card game, Toronto’s first postseason game, ahead of the postseason. Ryu Hyun-jin appeared as a starter in 11 regular season games and recorded 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 3.46.

Ryu Hyun-jin continued his good momentum in August, but showed a bit of a slowdown in September, which was the reason for his exclusion from the entry. Ryu Hyun-jin, who recorded 3 wins, 1 loss, and an average ERA of 2.25 in 5 games in August, had no wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of only 4.50 in 6 games in September. In particular, in his last three appearances, he all pitched five innings or less.

In addition, Ryu Hyun-jin, who was originally scheduled to make his last appearance in the regular season against Tampa Bay on September 30, changed the pitching order with his Japanese teammate Kikuchi and took the mound a day later on October 1, but performed poorly, allowing 2 runs in 3 innings.

In addition, Ryu Hyun-jin was nowhere to be seen in the club’s own video produced to commemorate the team’s entry into the wild card.

MLB.com said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s exclusion from the entry has already been decided,” and Yahoo Sports Canada said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s recent pitching performance is not satisfactory,” and “There is an option for Ryu Hyun-jin to join the bullpen, but he is included because he is a starting card.” “It didn’t work out,” he explained.

Meanwhile, if Toronto wins the wild card and advances to the division series, there is a possibility that Ryu Hyun-jin will enter the lineup. For the Division Series, the pitcher entry is expanded to 13 players. However, Toronto lost 1-3 in the first wild card game against Minnesota held on this day.
