Ryu Hyun-jin is far from returning… Toronto has no starting substitutes

For now, we are holding out with a 5-man rotation, but there is no substitute. This is the story of the Toronto Blue Jays.

On the 19th (Korean time), Toronto coach John Schneider reported the news of right-hander Mitch White’s shoulder pain while reporting the injured player in an interview with local media such as ‘Sportsnet’.

White complained of fatigue in his shoulder after rehabilitating at Triple-A Buffalo the previous day (4 hits, 1 home run, 4 walks, 3 strikeouts and 5 runs in 4 innings). He is scheduled to return to Toronto to be examined by medical staff.

White’s preparation for the season was delayed due to an elbow injury during spring camp, and he has recently been rehabilitated.

He was Toronto’s most promising 6 starter if the build-up was completed in good health. He was a player who could be brought in if a breakaway appeared in the existing starting lineup or if extra rest was needed.

However, as his rehabilitation was disrupted, the starting team operation plan was also disrupted.

Currently, five starting pitchers, Chris Bassett, Kevin Gaussman, Jose Berrios, Alec Manoa, and Yusei Kikuchi are maintaining the rotation without breaking away, but if even one of them leaves, it is not easy to find a replacement.

Some of the players on the 40-man roster that deserve a start include Jack Thompson (7.79), Casey Lawrence (5.84) and Drew Hutchison (6.48), but their triple-A numbers aren’t good enough to justify a big-league call-up.스포츠토토

Yosver Zulueta, who ranks third in the team’s prospect rankings, is doing well with an ERA of 3.86 in eight games, but has only 18 2/3 innings. In his recent appearances, he came out of the bullpen.

Ricky Tiederman, the number one prospect in the rankings, is out due to a left biceps injury. Ryu Hyun-jin, who is undergoing rehabilitation after Tommy John surgery, is also expected to return in the second half.

In this regard, MLB.com pointed out that the Blue Jays’ rotation is “an area of ​​concern.” For the time being, we have no choice but to hope that the existing starters will throw in a healthy way.
