‘ERA 5.31’ Ryu Hyun-jin’s original successor will fall again… What do you do if you throw 159 km ‘walk → walk → walk → bang’

Will Ryu Hyun-jin’s original successor fall again?

Nate Pearson (27, Toronto Blue Jays),스포츠토토 who seemed to be opening a second baseball life after transforming into a bullpen pitcher, was notified of going to Triple A. Toronto sent Pearson to Triple-A and called up Thomas Hatch ahead of a home game against the Baltimore Orioles on the 3rd (Korean time).

Pearson still has a minor league option. Because of this, Toronto was able to send it to Triple-A without any burden. In the end, on the 2nd (hereafter Korean time), when Ryu Hyun-jin was returning, the big thing was that he was hit with a grand slam by Anthony Santander against Baltimore.

He used 98.8 miles (about 159 km) four-seam, the fastest of the day, against Santander, but it also went out of the strike zone. In the end, he hit a superior grand slam with a full count, 7 pitches, and 97 mph four-seam. It was his 7th home run of the season. Austin Hayes was treated as a floating ball in center field, but the score was already widened to 3-11.

In 32 games, 5 wins, 2 losses, 3 holds, 1 save, and an average ERA of 5.31. After joining with the 28th rank in the first round of 2017, he suffered from numerous injuries and lost his first pitch, and finally seemed to be establishing himself as a bullpen pitcher this year, but his pace has fallen since June. Average ERA from June to August was 8.71, 4.63.

When Ryu Hyun-jin entered Toronto with a 4-year, $80 million contract in the 2019-2022 free agent market, Toronto media expected Pearson to grow into the next-generation ace in the pillar of Ryu Hyun-jin. However, Pearson did not live up to expectations at all. Ryu Hyun-jin seemed to make a comeback as a bullpen pitcher while undergoing Tommy John surgery and rehabilitation, but he failed to live up to his name.

In the end, when Ryu Hyun-jin returned from a hiatus of 1 year and 2 months, Pearson tasted the bad luck of going down to Triple A. It may come back on the major league roster, but Ryu Hyun-jin and Pearson may not come together forever to win Toronto. Toronto’s bullpen got stronger with the acquisition of Jordan Hicks. Pearson has no place to shine. He was once again on the brink of collapse.
