Ryu Hyun-jin Goes Without a Dedicated Catcher

Ryu Hyun-jin Goes Without a Dedicated Catcher… “Entry Problem”

Ryu Hyun-jin works with Choi Jae-hoon in his first exhibition match following the Cheongbaekjeon match.

The returning ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36) had a dedicated catcher when he played in the Major League Baseball (MLB).

Ryu Hyun-jin’s former teams, such as the Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays,

paired him with catchers with better ball combination, catching, and defensive skills than hitting,

in order to maximize Ryu Hyun-jin’s greatest strength, his ball control. 바카라사이트

In the Dodgers, Russell Martin and in Toronto, Danny Jansen mainly received the ball from Ryu Hyun-jin.

However, Ryu Hyun-jin plans to play without a dedicated catcher this season when he returns to the Korean stage.

Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho said ahead of the home game against the KIA Tigers in the 2024 professional baseball exhibition game held at Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park in Daejeon on the 12th,

“We are not planning to use a dedicated catcher,” and “this is due to entry issues.”

Manager Choi said, “If one catcher is used (only in games in which Ryu Hyun-jin pitches), the composition of the entry line may be disrupted.

It is not possible to use three catchers.”

Currently, Hanwha’s starting catcher is Choi Jae-hoon,

and newly recruited veterans Lee Jae-won and Park Sang-eon are scheduled to serve as backups.

According to Manager Choi’s plan, Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to play many games with starting catcher Choi Jae-hoon, regardless of the catcher’s ball mixing ability.

Ryu Hyun-jin teamed up with fellow friend Lee Jae-won of the same age in the second bullpen pitch held in Okinawa, Japan on the 26th of last month,

and performed spring camp live pitching (standing the batter and throwing the ball as if in a real game)

on the 2nd of this month and Daejeon on the 7th. In Cheongbaekjeon, he worked with Choi Jae-hoon.

In the KIA game on the 12th, Choi Jae-hoon receives the ball from Ryu Hyun-jin.

Meanwhile, on this day, Ryu Hyun-jin throws a ball in front of domestic fans for the first time since returning to the KBO League.

The Cheongbaek match on the 7th did not admit spectators due to stadium management issues.

On this day, numerous baseball fans gathered near the stadium from the morning, attracting attention.
