Ryu Hyun-jin (36) continues to be connected with the New York Mets. This time, he analyzed in detail the size of the contract and why it fits the Mets.
Metz Merized Online released an analysis of Ryu Hyun-jin among FA players on the 5th (Korea time).
“Ryu Hyun-jin had his best season in 2019 with a 2.32 ERA and BB/9 (1.2). Five years have passed since then. At that time, Ryu finished his last season with the Dodgers and finished second in the National League Cy Young Award,” the media said.
“I was with Toronto in the 2020 season and ranked third in the Cy Young Award voting, and 13th in the MVP voting. However, injuries plagued me for the last three years in Toronto and ended the season with Tommy John surgery for the 2022 season,” he said. “I returned to the rotation in August 2023 and showed promise. Fastball, off-speed, and breaking speed were all lower than usual. He sometimes throws fastballs, changeups, cutters, and curves with sinkers. His speed has dropped, but a good sign is that his hard-hit ratio is 37.1 percent, the lowest since the 2020 season.”
He also analyzed Ryu’s value.
The media reported that Ryu is expected to be a starting option for four to five players. Ryu has returned from Tommy John surgery for the first time in more than a year, although his arrest and injury history remain to be seen. The recovery period takes up to 18 months, so it will be interesting to see what happens to Ryu’s pitching in spring. If either side shows itself again, it will be a valuable asset for the rotation.
He also made predictions about the size of Ryu Hyun-jin’s contract.
“According to FanGraph’s prediction, Ryu will be able to sign a 10-million-dollar-a-year contract. The only contract Ryu can get from any team will be one year. There is a lot to prove from Tommy John surgery. Although he did not play the ace role in the Dodgers at one point, his 3.46 ERA in six starts in 2023 proved that he still has hope,” the media pointed out. 랭크카지노주소
Then why does Ryu get along well with the Mets.
“In the last month before the spring training, the market for starting pitchers has been getting thinner. With the Mets not recruiting Jordan Montgomery or Blake Snell, a one-year contract is the way to go,” Mets Merized Online reported. “Ryu is not a player that Mets fans want, but according to reports, the Mets are interested in Ryu.” David Peterson will leave early this season (due to surgery). Ryu will look good if he fills in the fifth starting pitcher. There is another left-hander Jose Quintana. Quintana will be a good role model for Ryu, who has to redefine himself. The Mets can use Ryu as a trade card this summer.”
