At the same time, Ryu Hyun-jin’s nickname, “Monster,” was introduced together with “Master Class,” which expresses a master. It was a tribute with a double meaning that Ryu Hyun-jin showed his skills one level above the Cincinnati batting line through a kind of masterpiece.
In addition, he left the expression of ‘form crazy’, a Korean buzzword of praise, in Korean, and praised Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching that day as a fuss.
The Toronto Star, a Canadian media outlet, said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s average speed never exceeded 90 mph that day and averaged only 87.4 mph, but he subdued the hitters with a clever trick.” . All pitches were a weapon to catch strikes,” he praised his pitching.
Reporter Mike Willner, columnist for the Toronto Star, also posted on his social media account, “Ryu Hyun-jin showed off a dazzling pitch again. 14 consecutive innings with no score,” he said. “It is most surprising that a player who has undergone Tommy John surgery and has been rehabilitated for more than 14 months shows such good control. Most of the players who undergo Tommy John surgery recover their control power last.”
As the Toronto Star put it, out of 83 pitches Ryu Hyun-jin threw that day, 38 were four-seam fastballs (46%), 18 were changeups (22%), 16 were curveballs (19%) and 11 were cutters (13%).

Other American media also praised his excellent control and game management ability to overwhelm opponents without throwing his fastball.

Cincinnati’s Ellie Del La Cruz is considered a “monster rookie” with excellent athleticism. Although it was not a sensational performance at the beginning of the league, the image of Del La Cruz, who excelled in long hitting power, striking out on an ultra-slow curve of only 106 km, seemed to be an impressive scene for the American media as well.
The excitement of the Canadian media was even greater. Another Toronto media, Sportsnet, praised Ryu Hyun-jin, saying, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s pitching was undoubtedly the driving force behind the victory on this day,” and “Ryu Hyun-jin showed off the best pitching after surgery.”
Afterwards, Sportsnet reviewed Ryu Hyun-jin’s second win of the season through its radio broadcast, and emphasized the need for Ryu Hyun-jin’s contract extension, which ends his 4-year contract with Toronto at the end of this season. Sportsnet said, “Toronto tentatively has five starting pitchers next year, but considering Ryu Hyun-jin’s current performance, he can offer a one-year or two-year contract with an option.”

As a result, it was predicted that if Ryu Hyun-jin moved to a team other than Toronto, the club could be left with regret.
As such, it seems that the atmosphere of the US and Canadian media, which had a pessimistic outlook and doubts about his performance after Ryu Hyun-jin’s injury, has changed to praise all at once.
