Toronto slips to fourth AL wild-card spot, desperate for a win

After rehabbing from elbow ligament reconstruction surgery (Tommy John surgery),

Ryu returned to the mound on August 2 and picked up wins against the Chicago

Cubs on August 14 (5 innings, 2 runs, no walks), the Cincinnati Reds on August 21

(5 innings, 2 runs, no walks), and the Cleveland Indians on August 27 (5 innings, 3 runs, 2 walks).

innings and three or fewer earned runs) since returning from injury.

Ryu, who is 3-3 with a 2.93 ERA this season, is expected to make three more starts this season,

including one against Boston. He currently has 78 career wins in the MLB, so two more wins would

put him over the 80-win plateau.

lineup’s long ball. Boston ranks eighth in team home runs (174) and is third in team on-base

percentage (.435).
