Ryu Hyun-jin, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, has completed another rehab appearance.
Making a rehab start for the club’s Triple-A Buffalo Bisons, Hyun-jin Ryu allowed one run on three hits (one home run) and five strikeouts in five innings of work against the Toledo Mud Hens (Triple-A Detroit Tigers) on Saturday (June 16) at Salen Field in Buffalo, New York.
Threw 18 pitches in the first, 16 in the second, 10 in the third, 14 in the fourth and eight in the fifth, totaling 66 pitches.
The fastball that struck out the final batter of the fifth inning was clocked at 88.9 mph, according to Bisons play-by-play announcer Pat Malacaro. The fact that he was able to maintain his velocity through the fifth inning is significant.
He successfully threw 65 pitches in four or five innings, a goal set by the organization, and moved one step closer to returning.
He gave up a run in the first inning. With the bases loaded, he worked a full count against Justin-Henry Malloy and gave up a solo home run over the left-center field fence on a seven-pitch at-bat. It was a reminder of Buffalo’s power, as the left-field shot traveled farther in the wind.
The Brewers bounced back immediately after the run. He got Colt Keith to ground out to shortstop on one pitch and induced a swinging strikeout of Tyler Nevin with a changeup that fell in a seven-pitch battle.
Taking the mound in the second inning with a three-run lead, Hyun-jin Ryu got the first batter, John Camargo, to fly out to center field on five pitches for the first out. He then retired Donnie Sands on a grounder to shortstop.
Michael Papierski was called out on a 3-1 count, but the pitch was challenged and ruled to be in the strike zone. He then struck out looking to end the inning.
In the third, he got the first batter he faced, Andrew Knapp, to ground out to shortstop, then induced a wild swing on a curveball against Corey Joyce and then struck out the side with an outside changeup. Parker Meadows followed with a fly ball to left field on three pitches.
In the fourth inning, he faced the opposing center fielder for the second time. Against Malloy, who had allowed a home run, he gave up another well-pitched ball, but this time it was caught in right field in front of the fence.
Keith induced a slow grounder to first base, but the ball was too slow for an infield single. He then gave up back-to-back singles to Nevin to put runners on first and second, but induced a grounder to third against Camargo to end the inning. 메이저도메인
The first batter of the fifth inning, Sands, gave up a hard-hit line drive to center fielder Cam Eden, who made a great leaping catch to end the inning with one out. The next batter, Papierski, hit a fly ball to center field two pitches later. Facing a 2-1 count, Knapp induced back-to-back swings at a curveball and fastball to get a strikeout to end the inning.
