Toronto Blue Jays’ Ryu Hyun-jin has achieved his 76th win (46 losses) in Major League Baseball, heralding a new leap forward after recovering from injury. Park Chan-ho’s record of 124 wins (98 losses), the most wins in Asian major leaguers, is difficult to overcome, but he is expected to chase the Japanese major leaguer record.

Ryu Hyun-jin started the 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Chicago Cubs at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 14th (Korea Standard Time) and pitched well with two hits, two walks, three strikeouts and two runs (Visabook) in five innings.

On this day, Toronto won 11-4 with Ryu Hyun-jin’s good pitch, and Ryu Hyun-jin harvested his first win (one loss) in three games after his return. It was the 76th win of his personal career in the big leagues.

Park Chan-ho, the “Korean Express” who holds the record for the most wins by Asian pitchers, is somewhat far from the record. Park Chan-ho played 17 years in the Major League, recording 124 wins, 98 losses, 1715 strikeouts, and a 4.36 ERA in 476 games.

Ryu Hyun-jin needs 49 wins to break Park Chan-ho’s record for most wins. Considering the absence due to injury and Ryu Hyun-jin’s age, it is not an easy challenge.

However, it is expected to easily surpass the record of most wins by some Japanese pitchers. If Ryu Hyun-jin adds four wins, he will beat Hiroki Kuroda (79 wins and 79 losses) and Masahiro Tanaka (78 wins and 46 losses), who are ranked fourth and fifth in Asian pitchers. Kuroda retired from active duty in 2016, and Tanaka plays for the Rakuten Golden Eagles of the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB).

Second place is Hideo Nomo, who has won 123 (109 losses) in 12 seasons. The San Diego Padres Darvish, who has won 100 games this season, is in third place with 103 wins (82 losses).

If Ryu Hyun-jin, whose contract with Toronto ends this year, is active in the Major League for more than two years, he will be able to challenge his fourth career win in the Asian big leagues.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who won the Cubs at the age of 36 years, 4 months and 20 days, broke Park Chan-ho (35, 10 months and 13 days)’s record as the oldest Korean Major League starting pitcher.

Ryu Hyun-jin also deserves to see Park Chan-ho (37, 3 months and 2 days) set as the oldest Korean player in the big leagues. a record that includes not only starting wins but also relief wins.

But the essential condition is to remain. Next year, you have to take the mound in the Major League to see if you can break the record.
