Ryu Hyun-jin says knee is fine…will pitch on Thursday
Toronto pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu was hit in the knee by a pitch during a game yesterday (Aug. 8), but thankfully escaped serious injury. He is expected to make his next start, which is scheduled for the 14th.
Toronto manager Schneider told MLB.com and other local media outlets that Ryu’s X-rays did not reveal any major problems, and that he is feeling much better and will not skip his next start.토토사이트
Ryu went down yesterday against Cleveland after being hit in the right knee by a hard hit ball, causing concern, but thankfully avoided any major damage and is expected to make his third start since returning from the disabled list on Thursday against the Chicago Cubs.
Ryu, who pitched a four-inning no-hitter before being pulled yesterday, will remain in the starting rotation, a huge boost for Toronto, which is in a tight race for the American League wild card.
San Diego’s Ha Sung Kim extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a 1-for-4 performance against Seattle.
His multi-hit streak ended at 15 games, tied with Ichiro for the most by an Asian player ever, but local media interest in Kim is growing.
MLB.com mentioned Kim’s name as one of the winners in its own mock National League season MVP poll.
