Prior to Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto)’s four-game winning streak, Toronto’s main infielders left due to injuries one after another.메이저사이트
On the 30th, Toronto placed its starting shortstop Bo Bisset on the disabled list with a right quadriceps (thigh muscle) injury. Earlier, on the 28th against Cleveland, Bisset suffered thigh pain while running base and was replaced. At that time, third baseman Matt Chapman was also replaced due to finger pain, and as a result of the examination, he was diagnosed with a right middle ligament sprain and was placed on the injured list on the 29th.
Chapman is the league’s top-class infielder who has won three Gold Gloves. Bisset is a defender who exerts great power in hitting with a batting average of 0.314 this season, 18 homers and 62 RBIs. As two key infielders fell out at once, Toronto’s wild card competition also faced a crisis.
It is Ryu Hyun-jin’s turn to start in the away game against Colorado on September 2nd in the starting order. After returning from rehabilitation, the shortstop and third baseman will be back-up infielders in the game where they are trying to win their 4th in a row with 3 recent wins in 5 games.
Toronto started the game against Washington on the 30th with backup agent Santiago Espinal as third baseman and Ernie Clement called up from the minor leagues as shortstop.
