The fastest fastball Hyun-jin Ryu (Toronto Blue Jays) threw against the Colorado Rockies was 145 kilometers per hour.
Only a handful of pitchers in the major leagues survive at 145 kilometers per hour. Ryu is one of them. But Ryu uses his fastball to cook big league hitters. He uses a mix of pitches, including his curveball and changeup.
Clayton Kershaw, who used to pitch alongside Hyun-jin Ryu for the Los Angeles Dodgers, narrowly avoided a loss against the Miami Marlins.
Kershaw started a road game against the Miami Marlins on June 6 and allowed three runs (two earned) in five innings.
Kershaw struggled with his velocity that day. Even his fastball velocity was lower than usual. Since returning from the disabled list, Kershaw hasn’t looked as sharp as he did earlier in the season when he was posting a Cy Young-caliber campaign. He walked five batters.
According to US media outlets, after the game, Kershaw said, “I didn’t have good control. But what can you do, you just have to try to throw better.”
Manager Dave Roberts said that Kershaw’s injured left shoulder is still not in a position to throw the ball as he normally does. His command hasn’t been terrible over the past few starts, but the problem is that his four-seam fastball has dropped 2.7 mph.스포츠토토
The fastest pitch Kershaw threw on the day was a four-seam that clocked in at 89.9 miles per hour.
The Dodgers fell to Miami, 3-6.
