It is a meaningful expedition for Ryu Hyun-jin. This is because the opponent is the Dodgers, who started his major league career. Prior to the 2013 season, Ryu Hyun-jin crossed the Pacific Ocean through the posting system (private competitive bidding method). He entered Dodger Stadium after signing a six-year, $36 million contract with the Dodgers.

It is Ryu Hyun-jin, who has established himself as a key starting resource since his debut season. In his first year, he went 14-8 with an earned run average of 3.00 and entered the major leagues brilliantly. He was so crazy that he earned the nickname ‘Korean Monster’, and over six years, he went 54-33 with an ERA of 2.98.

He guarded the Dodgers mound by standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the leading pitchers in the major leagues, such as Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke. He was selected to the All-Star Game in 2019, and was also honored to be the first Korean major league starter to mound.

As a member of the Dodgers, Ryu Hyun-jin also stood on the postseason stage. In 2013, he appeared as the first Korean postseason starting pitcher in Game 3 of the National League Division Series against Atlanta, and since then, he has played 10 innings in 2 games with an average ERA of 3.60. Also in 2014, he pitched 6 innings and 1 run in Game 3 of the Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. In 2018, he recorded an average ERA of 5.21 with 1 win and 2 losses in 4 games and 10 innings, and in 2019, he marked an ERA of 3.60 with 1 win and 1 win in 5 innings in 1 game.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who played a big role in the Dodgers, chose to move to Toronto after becoming a free agent. Because Toronto offered a huge amount of 80 million dollars for 4 years. Ryu Hyun-jin, who was reborn as Toronto’s first starter, kept the mound with a record of 21-12 and an average ERA of 4.24 over the past three seasons.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who took a year off due to an injury, visited Dodger Stadium full of good memories ahead of his comeback. Before the game, he had a good time talking to Dodgers coach Dave Roberts and the coaching staff, as well as chatting with teammates who ate rice together.

The Dodgers also welcomed Ryu Hyun-jin. Before the game, the announcer called Ryu Hyun-jin by name, and Ryu Hyun-jin briefly came out of the dugout to the ground and took off his hat to greet him. Fans also welcomed Ryu Hyun-jin with cheers and applause.

Meanwhile, in the game, Toronto lost to the Dodgers 7-8.
