‘105→145→171 Billion’ Increasingly Expected Contract Size…”RYU Could Be a Good 3-4 Pick” Claims LAA Heading to LAA


“Could be a good 3-4 starter”

On March 3 (KST), Sports Illustrated’s “Halos Today” published an article titled “3 Free Agent Pitchers the LA Angels Should Add This Offseason,” advocating for the signing of Ryu Hyun-jin.

After undergoing Tommy John surgery last year, Ryu returned to the mound “healthy” this year. His velocity was down from before the major surgery, but his command was back to his prime. He pitched four games in the minor leagues before returning to the big leagues, going 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA to build anticipation and showcase what he could do in the majors.

Ryu suffered a loss in his first start, but bounced back with a four-inning “no-hitter” against the Cleveland Indians in his second start, and then won three more games in a row, going 3-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 24 innings over five games in August. Not only was he healthy, but he proved that he was still major league ready after a long layoff. 토토사이트

September was a disappointment. After a strong first month back, Ryu cruised through September, allowing two runs in five innings in two starts, including his first quality start (six innings or less) against the Texas Rangers, who won the franchise’s first World Series (WS) trophy this year. However, as the end of the regular season approached, he played a total of three games against the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays, both of which ended in early sweeps.

The final three games were especially disappointing because Ryu will be eligible for free agency after this season, when his four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto expires. Still, Ryu has decided to extend his career in the majors and will be evaluated by major league clubs in free agency this year.
