Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), who is aiming for a 4-game winning streak, is fighting two variables. 

On the 30th (Korean time), the Major League Baseball (MLB) Toronto team placed shortstop Bo Bisset on the 10-day injured list (IL). It was due to a muscle injury in his right thigh. 안전놀이터

Bisset is the main hitter who ranked first in batting average (0.314) and second in home runs (18) among Toronto hitters this season. He is also the core of the defense, occupying one spot on the center line (catcher, shortstop, second baseman, center fielder). 

In Toronto, the previous day (29), third baseman Matt Chapman was on the IL due to pain in the middle finger of his right hand. In the previous two games in which Ryu Hyun-jin took the mound (against the Cincinnati Reds on the 21st and against the Cleveland Guardians on the 27th), he made a mistake and failed to support the defense, but he is a player with good defense enough to win the Gold Glove Award. 

Toronto recorded 72 wins and 60 losses, and is ranked third in the Eastern District of the American League (AL). The AL Wild Card ranks fourth after Tampa Bay, Houston Astros, and Texas Rangers. The departure of the two main players is a bad thing. 

Ryu Hyun-jin, who is about to start, also tries to win his 4th season with lack of air and defense support. Ryu Hyun-jin is scheduled to take the mound against the Colorado Rockies on the 2nd. It was an expedition to Coors Field, which was especially difficult when he was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Coors Field, which is located in the highlands, has a lot of long hits because the air resistance is low. It is called ‘Pitcher’s Grave’. 

Ryu Hyun-jin played 6 games at Coors Field, recording an average ERA of 7.06 with 1 win and 4 losses. His batting average is 0.342. 

Nolan Arenado, who was called the ‘nemesis’, was included in his performance when he was playing in Colorado, but even taking this into account, he was not strong at Coors Field. 

In this situation, key players who scored and defended support broke away. Attention is focusing on whether Ryu Hyun-jin, who has recently been on a winning streak after clearing the aftereffects of his injury with a slow curve, will be able to overcome the hurdle.
