‘Veteran starting pitcher is $10 million basic’ Ryu Hyun-jin laughs at FA market overheating…Will Hanwha return go away

While the number of starting pitchers in the Major League FA market is gradually disappearing, the ransom and interest of Ryu Hyun-jin (37) are also increasing.월카지노

Ryu Hyun-jin is a veteran starting pitcher with a record of 78 wins, 48 losses and an ERA of 3.27 in 186 games (1,055 ⅓ innings) in the Major League. He made his Major League debut in 2013 by signing a six-year, 36 million-dollar contract with the Dodgers, and ranked fourth in the NL Rookie of the Year voting with 14 wins, eight losses and an ERA of 3.00 in 30 games (192 innings). Although he faced a crisis after undergoing shoulder surgery, he successfully settled in the Major League with a record of 54 wins, 33 losses and an ERA of 2.98 in 126 games (740 ⅓ innings) over the past seven years with the Dodgers.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who had a career-high season in 2019 with 29 games (182 ⅔ innings) with 14 wins, 5 losses and a 2.32 ERA, became an FA for the first time since the end of the season and signed a four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto, successfully signing a big contract. Ryu underwent Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament joint surgery) for the second time in his career in 2022, but he successfully returned last year with three wins, three losses and a 3.46 ERA in 11 games (52 innings). Ryu Hyun-jin, who recorded 24 wins, 15 losses and a 3.97 ERA in 60 games (315 innings) in Toronto over four years, became a FA for the second time since the end of the season last year.

On the FA market, Ryu has yet to find his team for years to come. As it takes longer to find a new team, fans’ expectations are growing that he can return to his old team Hanwha. Although Ryu has already said his top priority is to stay in the Major League, his return to Hanwha remains an option.

However, considering the recent contract size of Major League FA starters, it is highly likely that Hanwha will not be easy in reality to propose a contract at the level that Ryu Hyun-jin wants. This is because Major League teams are also struggling to supply and demand starting pitchers after COVID-19, and the price of starting pitchers is going through the roof.

Yoshinobu Yamamoto, one of the biggest FA pitchers this winter, signed a 12-year, 325 million-dollar contract with the Dodgers, setting a new record for the largest contract ever for a pitcher. Philadelphia ace Aaron Nola also signed a seven-year, 172 million-dollar contract with Philadelphia after becoming an FA.

The price of a semi-quick starting pitcher is also higher than expected. Eduardo Rodriguez, who will turn 31, signed a four-year, 80 million-dollar contract with Arizona, while Sonny Gray, who is two years younger than Ryu, also signed a three-year, 75 million-dollar contract with St. Louis. Kenta Maeda, who is one year younger than Ryu, underwent Tommy John surgery just like Ryu and returned to the team last year, having struggled a bit with six wins, eight losses and an earned run average of 4.23 in 21 games (104 ⅓ innings), but successfully signed a two-year, 24 million-dollar contract with Detroit.

Veteran starters with single-year contracts are also significant. Most of them signed contracts worth more than 10 million dollars, including Cincinnati’s Frankie Montas (31 million dollars), Detroit’s Jack Flaherty (2914 million dollars), St. Louis Gibson (3713 million dollars) and Lance Lynn (3711 million dollars), the Mets’ Luis Severino (30,13 million dollars), Milwaukee’s Wade Miley (38,8.5 million dollars), and Pittsburgh’s Martin Perez (338,8 million dollars).

U.S. media expect Ryu to remain in the Major League. Multiple teams including the Mets, Boston, San Diego and Baltimore have reportedly shown interest in Ryu. If a Major League club offers a contract worth more than 10 million U.S. dollars, it is not easy for Hanwha to offer a contract beyond him.

Hanwha fans desperately want Ryu to return. However, chances are slim that the fans’ desperate wishes will become a reality. Fans are watching with interest what choice Ryu will make this winter.
