The fall of fate has come for Ryu Hyun-jin 36, Toronto Blue Jays. If you have a fierce American League wild card war with the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners by this month, you will get the final report card of a four-year $80 million about 106.2 billion won contract you spent in Toronto.
Ryu Hyun-jin successfully returned in a year and two months after completing his second Tommy John surgery and rehabilitation in August. 토토사이트링크 He has three wins, three losses and a 2.93 ERA in eight games. Although he recently lost two consecutive games, he also set up a quality start 5 hits, 5 strikeouts, 1 walk, and 3 runs in 6 innings for the first time since returning to the home game against Texas on the 13th.
The batting average of 0.220 and WHIP 1.05 is more than the best 2020 season 0.234, WHIP 1.15 since the transfer. He comes out with an ultra-slow curve while rehabilitating and once again targets Major League hitters with a reverse idea. The game management ability, strength and weakness control, and commands for each type of pitch are the best in the Major League.
After this season, it’s FA again. At this time, the value of Ryu Hyun-jin that Major League Baseball sees comes out exactly. Ryu Hyun-jin’s return to Hanwha in the KBO League can be virtually erased. The prevailing view is that if there is demand in the Major League, it will remain. There is always a demand for four to five selections for cost-effectiveness.
The Jays Journal, which deals with Toronto in Fanside, analyzed Toronto’s pay-roll for the 2024 season on the 13th, saying that if Toronto does not want to pay luxury taxes for the second consecutive year, it is inevitable to break up with some FA. The standard for luxury taxes this season was $233 million, and it is expected to be $237 million next year.
At the end of this season, Toronto, along with Ryu Hyun-jin, Matt Chapman, Brandon Belt, Kevin Kiermeyer, and Jordan Hicks will qualify for FA. Whit Merrifield is also FA if they don’t run the option. Leading hitter Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is an FA after the 2025 season. It’s been downhill for the last two years, but it’s right time to think about whether to go together or not in the long run. In addition, there are a lot of players who are eligible for annual salary adjustment.
It may not be obvious that one Ryu Hyun-jin’s salary is missing, but he may be excluded from the process of elaborating on the pay-roll. For Ryu Hyun-jin, there is no harm in looking for other teams in the FA market. It showed competitiveness again, and pitchers Shohei Otani LA Angels and Julio Yurias LA Dodgers will be excluded for one reason or another.
The Jays Journal expects Toronto Payroll to reach at least $200 million to close to $237 million next year. If we decide not to impose a luxury tax for the second consecutive year, we can sign an FA to replace Ryu Hyun-jin, Chapman, Belt, Kiermeyer, Maryhild, and Hicks, he said. The FA market is rich in options for starting pitchers ranging from $15 million to $20 million to replace Ryu Hyun-jin, he said.
In the end, Toronto is expected to be passive in signing a contract with Ryu Hyun-jin. The Jays Journal rather recommended recruiting FA fielders such as Otani, Cody Bellinger Chicago Cubs, and Teosca Hernandez Seattle Mariners. If you catch Otani, you should be prepared to impose a luxury tax.
