Ryu Hyun-jin made a big match against korea and Japan on the 27th, and the starting pitcher was confirmed
A big match between “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin (35, Toronto Blue Jays) and “Tutai Lee Do-ryu” Ohtani Shohei (28, LA Angels) was made.
Toronto announced Ryu Hyun-jin as the starting pitcher for the Angels away game at Angel Stadium on the 25th (Korea Standard Time) through MLB Dotcom, the official website of Major League Baseball. In addition, on the same day, Japan’s Kyodo News reported that “Otani was confirmed as a starting pitcher on the 27th” by borrowing the mouth of Angels coach Joe Madden, and the Angels also predicted Ohtani as a starting pitcher on the 27th through MLB Dotcom.
As a result, left-handed ace Ryu Hyun-jin, who represents Korean baseball, and Tutai Ido Ryu Otani, who symbolizes Japanese baseball, will face off on the mound for the first time in history.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who first made his major league debut in 2013 in a Dodgers uniform, showed off his ace-like appearance even after moving to Toronto in 2020. Although he has an unsatisfactory record of 6.00 ERA in four games due to a left forearm injury, he pitched 71 pitches in 4이닝 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 15th and pitched relatively well with 4 hits, 3 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings against Cincinnati on the 21st.
Ohtani, who will face Ryu, has become a top star in the Major League since last year. In particular, he raised his name by performing outstanding performances as a pitcher and batter, and this season, he is showing off his presence as last year’s American League MVP with a batting average of 0.2599 home runs, 28 RBIs and 30 runs in 42 games at-bats 토토사이트
Ryu Hyun-jin and Otani, who have yet to meet in the same space. However, the recent starting rotation led the two to their first showdown. Toronto and the Angels did not disclose the starting pitcher on the 27th until the previous day, but Toronto said in its game note on the 25th, “Ryu Hyun-jin is likely to make his fifth start of the season on the 27th. He is the fourth Angels opponent in his career, including the LA Dodgers,” and immediately announced Ryu Hyun-jin as a starting pitcher through MLB dotcom.
The Angels were also confirmed to face off as Madden took out Otani’s name as the vanguard on the 27th.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who is the first Korean to start the Major League All-Star Game in 2019 and the first Asian to win the first Cy Young Award, and Otani, who made history by becoming the first starter and first batter in the Major League in the opening game. A historic big match is just around the corner
