Major leaguer Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays, photo),스포츠토토 who underwent elbow ligament joint (Tommy John) surgery last June, is expected to return in July. Toronto general manager Ross Atkins said in an interview with the local media on the 16th, “Ryu Hyun-jin and bullpen pitcher Chad Green will throw the ball against batters next month in real life.” Ryu Hyun-jin and Green are rehabilitating in Dunedin, Florida, USA, where Toronto’s spring camp facility is located after elbow surgery. Ryu Hyun-jin plans to digest the live pitching schedule next week, where he throws the ball with the hitter standing in the plate after passing through catch ball and bullpen pitching. Ryu Hyun-jin’s return is expected to be mid-July, after the All-Star break, as he had hoped. Toronto pitching coach Pete Walker said, “Ryu Hyun-jin’s rehabilitation is proceeding smoothly,” and “Ryu Hyun-jin also wants to show why he came to this team.”
Ko Jin-young rises to 2nd place in women’s golf world rankings
Ko Jin-young (28, Solaire, photo) is once again set out to regain the No. 1 spot in the women’s golf world rankings. Ko Jin-young swapped her place with Lydia Ko (New Zealand) in the women’s golf weekly world rankings announced on the 16th and rose to second place. Ko Jin-young, who lost her world No. 1 spot in November last year, sat down to 5th at the end of last year. At the time, Ko Jin-young was heavily behind Nellie Koda (USA) and Lydia Ko, as well as her Min-Ji Lee (Australia) and Athayati Tikkun (Thailand). However, Jinyoung Ko, who became third by winning the HSBC World Championship last March, improved her ranking by winning the Cognitive Founders Cup in two months. At the Cognizant Founders Cup, Koda missed the cut and Lydia Ko tied for 42nd. 4th place was taken by Lilia Bu (USA) without change, and Lee Min-ji, who finished runner-up in the Cognizant Founders Cup, pushed Titikkun to 6th place and took 5th place.
Ohtani records first five on-base as a starting pitcher
Shohei Ohtani (28, Los Angeles Angels, photo), who is active in the American Major League (MLB), made up for his sluggishness on the mound with a powerful blow. On the 16th, Ohtani played as the third hitter and starting pitcher in an away game against the Baltimore Orioles held at Oriole Park in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, and led the team to a 9-5 victory. Pitcher Ohtani showed a somewhat disappointing appearance on the mound. On this day, he threw a fastball of 159.8 km per hour and digested 7 innings, but was sluggish with 4 hits, 2 walks and 5 runs, including 3 home runs. His earned run average rose from 2.74 to 3.23. However, he comforted the mound by going 4 hits in 5 at-bats, 1 home run, 3 RBIs and 1 walk. Ohtani, who hit a come-from-behind 3-run in the 4th inning, hit her ninth home run of the season and raised her season batting average to 0.303. Ohtani is the first pitcher in MLB history to reach 5 bases.
