“RYU will remain in TOR for a year at 10.5 billion.” Ryu Hyun-jin succeeded in staying in ML? Toronto’s honor recovery scenario came out

The U.S. predicted that FA Ryu Hyun-jin (37), who is seeking to remain in the Major League, will sign a single-year contract with his original team, the Toronto Blue Jays.

The U.S. media “Blitzer Report” predicted the destination of FA Ryu Hyun-jin under the title of “Reset of the Major League Baseball Starter Market under contracts between Shota Imana (Chicago Cubs) and Marcus Stroman (New York Yankees).”

Referring to Ryu Hyun-jin as the seventh FA starter after Blake Snell, Jordan Montgomery, Mike Clevinger, Clayton Kershaw, Michael Lorenzen and James Paxton, Bleacher Report predicted, “Ryu Hyun-jin will sign a one-year $8 million (about 10.5 billion won) contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.”헤라카지노도메인

Bleacher Report turned back time to the last 2019-2020 offseason when he hit the FA jackpot to set Ryu Hyun-jin’s value. The media reminded, “Ryu Hyun-jin headed to Toronto for a four-year $80 million (about 105.2 billion won) in the 2019-2020 offseason, and at that time, the only players who signed larger contracts than Ryu Hyun-jin were Gerrit Cole (nine years, $324 million), Stephen Strasburg (seven years, $245 million), Jack Wheeler (five years, $118 million), and Madison Bumgarner (five years, $85 million).”

However, despite the big contract, Ryu’s Toronto life ended in a rough patch. “Ryu Hyun-jin made 31 starts in 2021 after finishing third in the voting for the American League Cy Young Award in 2020. However, he missed a significant amount of time due to Tommy John surgery and rehabilitation, which eventually led to him playing just 79 innings in his last two years in Toronto,” Bleacher Report noted.

Media outlets viewed the single-year contract as the most appropriate size reflecting the reality of 37-year-old Ryu Hyun-jin. At the same time, the media assessed that one year or so could be sufficiently competitive in the rotation of starting pitchers in the Major League.

“Ryu Hyun-jin returned from Tommy John surgery last year and pitched well enough,” Bleacher Report said, praising Ryu’s competitiveness in the 2024 season. “It is surprising that no other club has asked Ryu to sign a one-year contract yet. This is especially true given that other mid-level starters have signed contracts one after another.”

Seeking to stay in the Major League, Ryu is constantly connected with multiple teams including the San Diego Padres, Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, and San Francisco Giants. Although he has turned 37 this year, his performance in the U.S. including Bleacher Report is not bad. Even though his heyday is over, four to five starters in the Major League are expected to be fully capable of performing their duties. Rich experience, knowledge and precise control are considered the biggest strength.

Toronto has built up solid strength to four starters including Kevin Gausman, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassett and Yusei Kikuchi. On top of that, Alec Manoa, ranking third in the 2022 American League Cy Young Award, gets the final puzzle game to form the perfect five starters. However, looking at Toronto’s recent two years, the rest of the starters, except for the one-two punch, have suffered ups and downs all the time, adding to concerns over the bench. If an experienced veteran named Ryu supports him, he can stabilize his team’s performance. Unlike four years ago when he served as the ace, Ryu is expected to sign a five-line issuance contract, which reduces the burden on Ryu.

Meanwhile, Bleacher Report also predicted the destination of top-tier FA starters along with Ryu in the 2024 season. Snell and Montgomery predicted a five-year, 125 million-dollar contract to San Francisco, while Montgomery predicted a five-year, 100 million-dollar contract with the Texas Rangers. Kershaw, the heart of the Los Angeles Dodgers, made a rather shocking prediction that he would remain unsigned until the opening game.
