‘No-hitter in 4 innings, then hit by a hard pitch’ Ryu Hyun-jin to start against Cubs on Thursday…looking for first win of season

The “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays) is set to make his third start of the season after shaking off injury concerns.

According to MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, Hyun-jin Ryu is scheduled to start the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Toronto Blue Jays at 2:37 p.m. ET on April 14 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Ryu ran into trouble in his second start of the season on April 8 against the Cleveland Indians. With two outs in the fourth inning, Ryu was hit in the leg by a 97.7 mph (157.2 km/h) fastball from Oscar Gonzalez. After fighting through the pain and getting the third out, Ryu fell to the ground and was unable to get up for a while in excruciating pain.

In the end, Ryu had to leave the game after pitching a no-hitter with four innings of one-hit ball, striking out two and walking none. After the game, he underwent a post-game X-ray, which fortunately revealed a knee contusion.

“Toronto manager John Schneider said the swelling in Ryu’s leg has gone down,” Sportsnet Canada reported. “The veteran left-hander will throw a bullpen session on Dec. 12 and then start on Dec. 14 if all goes well,” the media outlet said.

A year after undergoing elbow surgery last year, Ryu took a loss against the Baltimore Orioles on April 2, giving up four runs in five innings. Ryu will be looking to pick up his first win in his third start of the season after an unfortunate injury in Cleveland. 안전놀이터
