“Ryu Hyunjin Interesting Option, One-Year Contract With Mets” ML Remaining Time Matters…AAV is well over 10 million dollars

Right-hander Lucas Giolito (29) recently signed a two-year, 38.5 million-dollar FA contract with the Boston Red Sox. Giolito is no better than Ryu (37) who is much younger than Ryu Hyun-jin (37, FA). His overall performance is 61-62 with a 4.43 ERA. He has eight wins, 15 losses and a 4.88 ERA in the 2023 season.

Ryu has fatal disadvantages as he is old, lack of speed, and has a history of injury. Nevertheless, he has 78 wins and 48 losses with a 3.27 ERA in 186 games. In the second half of last season, he returned from Tommy John surgery for the second time in his life, and recorded 3 wins and 3 losses with a 3.46 ERA in 11 games. 메이저 토토사이트

With a variety of pitches, sophisticated commands, and ever-changing pitching patterns, he has the ability to lead five to six innings stably. Initially, a guaranteed contract of 10 million dollars per year was expected, but the FA market is a trend where starting pitchers are treated more than usual. Teams that want Ryu Hyun-jin continue to be mentioned in the U.S. media. There is no reason to sign for 10 million dollars per year.

The New York Post connected the New York Mets with Ryu Hyun-jin again on the 3rd (Korean time). “FA including Shota Imana, Mike Clevinger, Sean Manaea and Ryu Hyun-jin are interesting options for the Mets,” he said. Just like Ryu, they are the starting pitchers for the fourth to fifth teams.

The New York Post said, “Ryu Hyun-jin has only one season (2021 season, 169 innings) since the 2019 season because the 2020 season has been shortened due to elbow surgery and COVID-19. He will turn 37 in March, but since returning in August last year, he has performed quite well with an ERA of 3.46 in 52 innings in Toronto.”

Of course, the Mets made all-out efforts to recruit Yoshinobu Yamamoto (26, Los Angeles Dodgers) but failed. However, they also need to reinforce starting pitchers for the fourth and fifth teams. The New York Post said, “(Ryu Hyun-jin) can work on a one-year contract when the Mets refused to spend a lot of money on starting pitchers after losing the recruitment battle for Yamamoto.”

After all, chances are high that Ryu will sign a one-year contract, but depending on the situation, this trend in the FA market is worth seeking even a one-plus-one or two-year contract. It is natural for Ryu to take a cautious approach as it is effectively the last FA contract. At this point, chances are growing that the team will reunite with the Hanwha Eagles this winter.
