Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto) has completed his first post-surgery bullpen appearance.

MLB.com, a major league baseball news site, published an additional interview with Ryu on the 26th that was not included in the article two days ago.

Ryu took to the bullpen mound on the outfield side of Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, on the 24th and threw a ball.메이저놀이터

Toronto’s coaching staff and teammates, including manager John Schneider, stood behind Ryu and watched him throw from the bullpen.

“The entire Toronto pitching staff watched Ryu’s bullpen and applauded when he finished,” MLB.com reported.

“I worked hard on cardio and weight training. Stopping eating late at night was the biggest secret to losing weight.”

Ryu, who underwent elbow ligament splicing surgery on 19 June last year, is on track to return to the major league mound in mid-July.

According to MLB.com, “Most pitchers who have had surgery don’t give a clear timetable for their return. “It’s common for them to say, ‘I’m following the team’s plan,'” said MLB.com. “Ryu is different. He doesn’t hesitate to talk about when he will return.”

“From the beginning, I said I wanted to come back after the All-Star break and be part of the team again. My goal is the same now. I made a rehabilitation schedule for my return in mid-July.”

The Major League Baseball All-Star break is from 11-14 July.

“I started throwing my changeup and curveball,” said Ryu, who hopes to return to the big leagues in 50 days. I still have some work to do. I need to increase the number of pitches, and I need to throw my cutter,” he said. “The most important thing is to get my starting pitcher’s body back.”
