With the spread of the new coronavirus infectious disease (Corona 19) in the United States, major leagues have not even begun, and Korean major leagues are not only troubled. In particular, Ryu Hyun-jin (33, Toronto Blue Jays) and Kim Kwang-hyun (32, St. Louis Cardinals) are still staying in Florida, where there is still a Spring Camp training ground.
In particular, Ryu Hyun-jin is one of the only three Toronto big leagues left in Dunedin, Florida, with Japanese pitcher Yamaguchi Sun (32) and Dominican pitcher Rafael Dollis (32). Toronto President Mark Suffiro said on the 23rd, “They are the only players who can use the Toronto FC training facility.” Ryu Hyun-jin's wife, Bae Hyun-hyun, who is 7 months pregnant, is also staying.
They are unable to go to Toronto, where they are home, as the Canadian government announced on the 17th that it was banning entry into foreign countries to prevent the spread of Corona 19. Fortunately, you can use the training ground, TD Garden, so you can continue simple training such as catch ball. In Dunedin, 30 minor league players and 4 employees are also in Toronto. Eighteen of them are from Venezuela. Minor league players stay at the property without access to Toronto training facilities.
There is also a view to positively see the situation of Ryu Hyun-jin. The Canadian press “Toronto Line” said, “I am concerned about the spread of Corona 19, but for Hyun-Jin Ryu, training in warm weather may be more comfortable.” However, it is true that Ryu Hyun-jin is concerned about whether he can prepare for the 2020 season without a hitch. “The majority of athletes are not in good shape to play now because they haven't trained properly,” said President Suffiro. “It will require four weeks of training and trial time to start a normal season.”
The opening acting is a bad thing for Kim Kwang-hyun, who revealed his prospects for starting the game through a pilot game. It was unclear how Kwang-Hyun Kim's entry into the Judeer Stadium in Jupiter, Florida remained lonely. Local newspaper St. Louis Post Dispatch said, “Kwang Kwang-hyun will play as a long relief and fill the spot if there is a problem with the starting rotation.” Initially, with the rise of Miles My Colors and the sluggishness of Carlos Martinez, Kwang-Hyun Kim seemed to be ahead of the competition, but with the opening being delayed, My Colors had time to recover. Here, Martinez is regarded as a comparative advantage in that he has a lot of experience in selection and is able to adapt relatively well to the variables caused by the opening acting.
Meanwhile, Choi Man-ji (29, Tampa Bay Race) plans to return to Japan on the 24th and train with self-isolation for 2 weeks. Choi Man-ji, who was staying in the st. St. Petersburg and quenching, decided that Korea's training environment was better. My brother runs a training ground in Incheon, so I can train more easily. Tampa Bay respected Choi's willingness to do personal training in Korea.
