It is the era of the revolution of restraint. Today’s major league pitchers strive to throw harder pitches. The faster the velocity, the less time the 온라인카지노 batter has to react. Of course, a fast ball is more powerful than a slow ball.
Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) underwent elbow surgery in June of last year. He returned after a 14-month hiatus. His first two fights were a little wobbly, but he’s won three in a row since. 5 games, 3 wins, 1 loss, average ERA of 2.25.
One thing to note is the restraint. Many experts diagnosed that restraint is the key to Ryu Hyun-jin’s recovery. He believes that a four-seam fastball should go at least 90 mph. According to Statcast, Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-seam fastball average speed this season is 88.3 miles (about 142 km).
According to Fangraphs.com, the average speed of a major league fastball in 2023 is 94 mph. Ryu Hyun-jin’s arrest is not fast even in the KBO League. Ryu Hyun-jin is going backwards in his time.
Toronto manager John Schneider recognized that Ryu Hyun-jin’s slow ball is rather unfamiliar to batters these days.
‘USA Today’ reported on the 27th (Korean time) that Schneider said, “Hitters today are too focused on speed.”
“Ryu Hyun-jin controls where the ball lands in the strike zone,” Schneider said. You’ve done well,” he praised.
To take an extreme example, it is similar to how hitters are unexpectedly embarrassed by a ball thrown by a fielder. In a situation where the score gap widens significantly, the team that is behind puts a fielder on the mound to save the pitcher and leaves it for about the last inning. They throw the Arirang ball at 60 to 70 miles (90 to 110 km) without a proper windup, but catch three outcounts easily.
Pitching expert Yang Sang-moon, the coach of the women’s national baseball team, once said this while talking about her redemption while coaching the LG Twins in the past.
She said, “Does anyone know how to throw a 50km strike? Get them now. No one can hit.”
