The Toronto Blue Jays made another decision on the 12th (Korea Standard Time). Relegated Alec Manoa to Triple-A. Manoa, in his second year in the big league, still has the club’s minor league options. However, he may not be able to return as a starting pitcher at least this season. The Toronto Star of Canada reported the news and mentioned it as above. Toronto’s decision was easy due to Ryu Hyun-jin’s return and Manoa’s sluggishness.
Ryu Hyun-jin returned healthy. Shortly after Ryu Hyun-jin’s return, Toronto ran six starters, including ace Kevin Gaussman, Jose Berrios, Ryu Hyun-jin, Chris Basit, and Yusei Kikuchi and Manoa. However, Manoa was removed from the starting lineup and returned to the five-man rotation. As Toronto Star explained, Ryu Hyun-jin is not a suitable type of pitcher for the bullpen.
Kikuchi is active this season, 안전놀이터 and Bassett is not shaken much even if there are ups and downs. Manoa, on the other hand, remained unstable even after his return. In addition, Toronto will end its 17th straight game against the Chicago Cubs on the 14th, where Ryu Hyun-jin will play. Since then, there have been frequent breaks such as the 15th, 18th, and 22nd. Since then, there have been nine consecutive games, but it is routine in the Major League.
As a result, Ryu Hyun-jin will also play the rest of the regular season with his first appearance in six days after a six-day break, not seven days after a six-day break. First of all, Ryu Hyun-jin will make his third appearance of the season against the Chicago Cubs at home at 2:37 on the 14th.

If a five-man rotation is substituted, Ryu Hyun-jin will finish the Cincinnati (2:40 away), Cleveland (4:07 home) on the 21st, Colorado (9:40 away), Oakland (4:37, away) on the 2nd of next month, Texas (8:07 home), Boston (2:37, home) on the 13th, and Tampa Bay (5:0 home) on the 24th.
In other words, Ryu Hyun-jin has nine more appearances left. What stands out is that there are six daytime games. In particular, Ryu Hyun-jin’s turn is expected to have frequent daytime games. It is important to take care of your condition. In particular, the last three games of the season, including two games against Tampa Bay, which ranks first in the wild card, and the Boston match, which competes for fifth in the wild card, are very important matches.
It is an opportunity for Ryu Hyun-jin. If you take five days off normally and go into six days without health problems and achieve results, it can be a decisive factor in increasing value in the upcoming 2023-2024 FA market. Ryu Hyun-jin’s future fate as a major leaguer is expected to be determined in these nine games.
Toronto failed to recover Ryu Hyun-jin’s full $80 million anyway. Instead, it created an environment to draw 20 million dollars (about 26.6 billion won) in annual salary this year. It is also a nine-game match for Ryu Hyun-jin. The industry’s prediction at this point is that the attempt to stay in the Major League will be heavier than the return to Hanwha in the KBO League this winter.
