There’s a high level of concern ML’s top starters can’t even trade
The Toronto Blue Jays’ starting lineup this season is one of the team’s biggest concerns. He was once considered the top starter in the Major League, but he is suffering from a series of injuries. The current situation was also pointed out in the U.S. media’s current situation.
The Athletic of the U.S. pointed out the current problems of Toronto one by one on the 11th (Korea Standard Time). It analyzed the prospects for offense, starters, bullpen, and American League wild card rankings.
The biggest problem among these is definitely the starting lineup. The media evaluated the starting lineup as “high-level of concern.”
Recently, Toronto’s starters have been suffering from a series of injuries. Three people have already been injured. Ryu Hyun-jin (35), the ace player, started the game. Ryu Hyun-jin, who has undergone an elbow ligament joint surgery (Tomizone Surzer), will not be able to return until the second half of next year at the earliest. Toronto has only 9 wins and 16 losses since June 15, when Ryu Hyun-jin left. Ross Stripling (33), who took the opportunity to start as a substitute due to Ryu Hyun-jin’s injury, has recently been showing anxiety with his uneven performance.
In addition, there was an injury in the match against Tampa Bay on the 3rd. Kevin Gausman (31), who is playing as a practical ace after Ryu Hyun-jin’s injury, was hit by a right ankle by a ball during the game and collapsed. As a result of the examination, it was determined that it was not a fracture, but fans’ concerns are growing as he failed to take the mound on the 11th, the scheduled date of his return. To make matters worse, Japanese starter Yusei Kikuchi (31) was on the injured list due to a neck injury on the 8th. Kikuchi is sluggish with 3 wins, 5 losses and a 5.12 ERA amid poor control.
Due to a series of injuries to starting pitchers, Toronto has fallen to fourth place among five teams in the American League East due to a serious slump of 1 win and 9 losses in the last 10 games. It has a winning percentage of 0.517, 45 wins and 42 losses. Toronto, which was considered a favorite to win, is on the verge of being pushed to the bottom of the league 토토추천
The media said, “Stripling on the 9th (two runs in five innings), Alec Manoa on the 10th (two runs in seven innings), and Max Castillo on the 11th (three runs in four innings) showed overall stability. However, the problems of the starting lineup began a long time ago. From June 17 to July 6, the starting lineup’s ERA was 5.55. Berrios has been going through tough times all year, and recently Kikuchi has suffered a neck injury. The starting lineup Debs has weakened,” he pointed out.
“Toronto just wants Gausman back soon. Because there is no pitcher who throws as well as Gaussian. At least Manoa is holding out in the starting lineup. Stripling is averaging on behalf of Ryu Hyun-jin, and Berrios is not showing continuous success. Kikuchi is a wild card, but I’m worried because there’s no depth,” he pointed out and added, “The starting lineup is not as good as expected. Perhaps a good starter is hard to get by the trade deadline. But we still need to strengthen it until the end.”
