Ryu had a busy day early in the morning. Visiting Incheon International Airport to head to Okinawa, Japan, Hanwha’s spring camp site, Ryu arrived in a suit that he wore when getting on the plane. He greeted Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho and briefly met the team. At the meeting, Ryu said, “I’m back in 12 years. I’ll do my best to go higher up. I look forward to your kind cooperation,” to which the team responded with applause.

After quickly changing into a uniform, Ryu warmed up and started pitching in the bullpen. Having settled down by hardening the dirt on the bullpen mound with a spike, Ryu settled down and started pitching in the bullpen. He checked the pitch speed by throwing the ball lightly.

While Ryu was pitching, Hanwha manager Choi Won-ho also came to see him. SBS commentator Lee Soon-cheol asked what percentage he pitched to, and Ryu replied, “I’m not trying hard.”

Ryu threw a total of 45 pitches. He threw a mix of fastballs, curves, cutters and changeups.

After completing all the training, Ryu Hyun-jin said, “I came with a happy heart because everyone, including the coaching staff and front office staff, welcomed me.”

As for bullpen pitching, he said, “I haven’t had any problems because I’ve been preparing for it all this time,” adding, “Since I’ve been training indoors all the time, I wanted to do it outdoors quickly. So I pitched in the bullpen as soon as I got here, and I think I threw well.”

Regarding the plan afterwards, he said, “I think I will throw bullpen pitching once more and now I will proceed with live BP. And after that, I think I will move on to the next stage.”

He can match the opening game schedule. “I think it will be okay in time. I think I can increase the number of pitches to 80,” Ryu said, expressing confidence. “Since I pitched up to 65 in Korea, I don’t think it will matter at all.”

Hanwha will start its opening two consecutive games against LG at Jamsil Stadium from March 23.

Expectations are mounting for Ryu, who was strong against LG, to take the mound in the opening game. Before leaving for the U.S., Ryu won 21 out of 98 games he had won in the KBO League. His first start and first win since his debut was against LG.

While Ryu was away, LG has undergone many changes. Last year, it won the combined title and lifted the cap on the Korean Series title for the first time in 29 years. Nevertheless, Ryu’s return has revealed a great deal of alertness. LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop is also poised to revise the target number of wins, believing that it will also affect the team’s winnings.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who heard this, said, “I will make sure that I can bring one of the two wins you aimed for in the opening game.”

There are other teams that have shown weak performance against Ryu, including Lotte and KIA. “I think I have to go through it as I have changed a lot,” Ryu said. “I think I should study a lot while watching exhibition games or practice games.”
