With “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (33) set to play his final game of the regular season, Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo gave infinite trust.
Ryu Hyun-jin will start the home game against the New York Yankees at Salon Field in Buffalo, New York, on the 25th (Korean time).
Toronto is currently ranked third in the American League East with 29 wins and 27 losses and a 0.518 winning percentage. The eighth seed of the postseason again. Now, he has one win left until he is confirmed to advance to the postseason.
Therefore, Toronto can secure its postseason berth if it wins the game on Saturday. Under these circumstances, Coach Montoyo has given credit to Ryu.
After winning the New York Yankees on the 24th, Montoyo said, “I think I’ll sleep well tonight because I know Ryu Hyun-jin will take the mound tomorrow.”
This has given him confidence in the ace. Now it’s time for Ryu to overcome his weakness against the New York Yankees and repay the manager’s trust.
Meanwhile, Toronto is likely to face the Tampa Bay Rays on the same planet in the wild card series, the first round of the postseason.
