Toronto announced its starting pitchers for the four-game series against Texas in that order: Chris Bassett, Hyun-jin Ryu, Yusei Kikuchi, and Kevin Gozman.
Ryu Hyun-jin will face Scherzer, one of the best active pitchers, as a starter in the second game of a four-game series starting at 8 a.m. on the 13th, Korean time.
In the American League wild card standings, Toronto is in second place and Texas is in fourth place, 1.5 games behind.
The wild card cutoff to advance to the postseason is 3rd.
Ryu Hyun-jin was on a three-game winning streak but recorded only one loss in two appearances this month.
The Texas batting line that Ryu Hyun-jin will face is powerful enough to currently rank first in the league in team batting average (0.266), first in team scoring (777 points), fifth in team home runs (200), and first in team slugging percentage (0.454). .
There are many sluggers, including Adolis Garcia with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs, Corey Seager with 30 home runs and 87 RBIs, and Marcus Siemian with 87 RBIs and 24 home runs.
In order for Ryu Hyun-jin to dominate such a batting lineup, his pitch control must be precise, and the sharpness of his change-up, curve with a large drop, and cut fastball are expected to determine Ryu Hyun-jin’s success or failure.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned from left elbow ligament surgery and appeared seven times, was good with 1 win and 1 loss and an ERA of 1.89 in the 4 away games, but struggled relatively well with 2 wins and 1 loss and an ERA of 3.60 in the 3 home games. .
He had a higher hits allowed percentage (0.259) at home than away, and also allowed more home runs (3).
It is also a burden for Ryu Hyun-jin that his best catcher Danny Jansen is out of action due to surgery on the middle finger of his right hand.
Scherzer, who played for the New York Mets before moving to Texas, is expected to have difficulty targeting Toronto hitters as his pitching has become more stable after the trade.
Scherzer, who left with 9 wins, 4 losses, and an ERA of 4.01 with the Mets, is currently recording 3 wins, 2 losses, and an ERA of 3.63 in Texas.
