Toronto Blue Jays starter Rotezin was caught in a bad jinx this season. It’s a ‘one-time loss’.
On the 19th (Korean time), the official Major League homepage MLB.com said, ‘The Blue Jays may be the best team in baseball. If it’s from the second inning,’ he said in a self-deprecating analysis.
Toronto lost 2-9 in the game against Houston on the 18th, giving 7 points only in the first inning. Starting pitcher Kevin Gausman resigned with 7 runs in 4⅔innings.
Fortunately for Toronto, the bomb did not explode in the first episode for two days in a row. The match against Houston on the 19th was won 4-2. On this day, starter Chris Bassett pitched 6⅓ scoreless innings.
However, Bassett has a very high ERA of 13.50 per inning this season. 4 innings and 6 runs. Gaussman’s first inning record is 4 innings and 7 runs (6 earned). Jose Berrios and Yusei Kikuchi allowed 3 runs in 3 innings, and Alec Manoa allowed 4 runs in 4 innings. The Toronto starters’ ERA per inning is 11.00, which is tied for last in the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who is recovering from an injury, recorded an average ERA of 3.88 with 75 runs in 174 innings in his major league career. In 2022, he has a 3.00 earned run average with 2 runs in 6 innings. It is also difficult to describe Ryu Hyun-jin as a very strong pitcher in the first inning.
MLB.com raised the question of Toronto’s starting pitchers struggling from the start, asking, “Is this really a coincidence, or is there something in common between the starting pitchers?”
MLB.com suggested the possibility that Toronto pitchers’ habits and pitching patterns were analyzed, saying,먹튀검증 “Hitters know what’s going to happen, or at least guess better than usual.”
However, coach John Schneider gave a principled answer, saying, “I think it’s a coincidence. It’s been two weeks now. I know this has happened to some players. I hope this problem is resolved and the bullpen is a little more stable.”
MLB.com said, ‘Anyway, the Blue Jays have to find a solution. In addition to the obvious downside of collapsing from the start, it is difficult to avoid overloading the bullpen. There are no real long men in the Toronto bullpen. It won’t last forever, but you have to solve the puzzle,’ he warned.
