Reports are starting to surface about a new contract for Ryu Hyun-jin, 36, the “Korean Monster” of Major League Baseball. Teams are showing up to give the veteran left-handed pitcher generous offers in free agency. He is ranked at the bottom of the free agent rankings, but his stock is high. It is seen as a low-cost, high-efficiency card.레모나토토 주소
On Aug. 8 (KST), The Athletic ranked Ryu 36th in free agency. Based on the opinions of various experts, they checked the contract status of 40 free agents and ranked Ryu 36th. They also predicted that he could sign a one-year, $11 million contract. They also predicted that the Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Mets, and Boston Red Sox could be interested in signing Ryu to bolster their starting pitching.
On the same day, Toronto Blue Jays fansite Jays Journal reported on the possibility of re-signing Ryu. They pointed out that Ryu returned in the middle of the season and pitched well as Toronto’s fifth starter, and that it would not be a bad idea for the Jays to re-sign him if they were in need of a starting pitcher. The Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers could also be interested in Ryu.
Recently, there have also been rumors of a return to his hometown team, the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers are in need of a transfusion due to the collapse of their starting pitching staff, and there is a view that they might consider Ryu, who has performed exceptionally well in the past. Based on the current situation, it seems that there are quite a few teams with weak starting pitching depth that would target the veteran Ryu for a one-year contract. Ryu was a Cy Young Award nominee and led the league in ERA. His two surgeries and advanced age are negatives, but he bounced back last season to offset those concerns.
Ryu Hyun-jin is a quiet one. He doesn’t have the best free agent rankings, but he doesn’t seem to mind. Super agent Scott Boras, who is known as a “master negotiator,” is also relaxed. That’s because the number of teams that want Ryu is growing, and the value of veteran starting pitchers is likely to increase in the coming offseason. It’s expected that he’s working on a plan that recognizes Ryu’s value and allows him to pick and choose the team he wants to join.
No rush. The hilt is in Ryu’s hands. It’s not too late for the top free agents to find a home. In fact, it might make them even more popular. The resurgence this season has certainly led to the Stovrig margin. It’s possible that Ryu’s silence will be a little longer.
