“I couldn’t get a $10 million offer from MLB” Based on participation in posts from 12 years ago Hanwha continues to woo and deliver a contract at the end of January. Son Hyuk’s friendship also played a role.

The 2012 Professional Baseball All-Star Game was held at Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium on July 21, 2012.Western team starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin of Hanwha is coming down the mound after allowing no runs in the bottom of the second inning.

The KBO League’s home team, the Hanwha Eagles, saved the pride of ‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (36).

On the 22nd, Hanwha announced that it had signed an eight-year contract with Ryu Hyun-jin worth a total of 17 billion won.

The total amount of 17 billion won is the highest ever in Korean professional baseball, surpassing the previous record of 15.2 billion won for 4+2 years by Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who faced the cold reality in MLB’s Stove League, is grateful for the hospitality of his home team.

Several clubs, including the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates, were mentioned as destinations for Ryu Hyun-jin, who became a free agent (FA) in October of last year, but they were unable to reach an agreement.

If it had been a strategy to raise the price, there would have been no problem, but Ryu Hyun-jin said his pride was hurt by the poor evaluation of MLB clubs.

In particular, no team offered an annual average of $10 million, which was a psychological Maginot line.

An official on Ryu Hyun-jin’s side said, “This winter, we did not receive contract offers worth more than $10 million per year on average from major league clubs, and during this process, Ryu Hyun-jin considered returning to the KBO League.”

‘$10 million’ is also the minimum amount that Hanwha set when it posted Ryu Hyun-jin (private competitive bidding) in 2012.

At the time, Hanwha did not plan to allow the company to enter the U.S. unless there was a big league team offering more than $10 million.

However, MLB teams’ evaluation of Ryu Hyun-jin was beyond imagination.The Los Angeles Dodgers gave Hanwha 25,737,737 dollars and 33 cents, which ranks fourth in the major league posting system, and later signed a large six-year contract worth $36 million with Ryu Hyun-jin.

Twelve years have passed since then, and Ryu Hyun-jin may feel the passage of time.

It was impossible to avoid harsh evaluations from local American media.

Jim Bowden, a former MLB general manager, set Ryu Hyun-jin’s price at $8 million per year and advised, “Due to the risk of injury, we will have to accept a one-year contract.”

‘MLB Trade Rumors’, which specializes in transfer news, mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s strikeout rate (17.0%), number of innings (11 games, 52 innings), and average fastball speed (88.8 miles per hour) in the 2023 season, calling him a ‘5-inning pitcher’. “It seems difficult to receive more treatment,” he predicted. 토토사이트
