Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu is on track to return to action. After two more rehab appearances in the minors, he will join the Toronto roster. If he continues to perform well after his big league call-up, Toronto could have a six-man rotation.

MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, reported on 17 July that “Hyun-jin Ryu needs more time to increase his pitch count. Coming back from elbow ligament reconstruction surgery is not a simple task. Toronto manager John Schneider also shared the news, saying that he thinks Ryu needs at least two Triple-A starts.

“We all want him to come back,” Schneider said. “Ideally, he’ll pitch more in Triple-A and then come back. His record speaks for itself, and we trust him. We want to make sure he’s fully fit and ready to go,” he said, expressing strong faith in Ryu.

Ryu has shown good form in his rehab appearances. In his third rehab start after three innings in the Rookie League (one run) and four innings in Single-A, Ryu pitched five innings of three-hit ball in a Triple-A game against the Toledo Birdhens on the 16th, giving up one run on one hit with five strikeouts and no walks. His fastball was clocked at 144.5 mph and his total pitch count was 66. He did not feel any pain while pitching.

He will join Toronto as soon as he gets his pitch count up. He needs to throw 80 to 100 pitches to join the starting rotation. This is why Ryu should continue to make rehab appearances in the minor leagues.

When he returns, he could be considered for the sixth spot in the rotation. “If you have six healthy starters who are performing well, you can use the rotation to your advantage,” Schneider said. It gives guys a chance to rest,” Schneider said.

Local media outlet Yahoo Sports Canada also recently predicted that Toronto would go with a six-man rotation, noting that “Toronto starters have performed better when they’ve been well-rested.

However, Kevin Gausman is out with an injury and Yusei Kikuchi has been up and down. Alec Manoa has also struggled this year and is still not completely reliable, despite a six-inning, five-hit shutout against the Detroit Tigers in which he allowed one run and struck out eight.

In the meantime, Toronto will be glad to have Ryu back. Toronto is smiling at Ryu, who has been consistently good in his rehab appearances.
