There is a possibility that Ryu will join the San Diego Padres, which is well known as one of Kim Ha-sung and Ko Woo-seok’s clubs. However, some forecast that his contract terms will be less than 10 million U.S. dollars for a year.라바카지노도메인
The U.S. sports media “Major League Trade Rumors” reported on the 11th (Korea time) that “San Diego is focusing on strengthening the outfield, but is still interested in recruiting starting pitchers,” citing a report by Dennis Lin, a U.S. sports media outlet, and cited FA Michael Lorenzen, Eric Lauer and Ryu Hyun-jin as candidates for recruitment.
The media outlet said of Lorenzen, “We had the best year last year. Lorenzen, who was named an All-Star for the Detroit Tigers, transferred to the Philadelphia Phillies in August. He pitched 124 pitches to achieve a no-hitter against the Washington Nationals.”
However, Lorenzen showed a downward trend after achieving no-hitter. The media reported that Lorenzen was excluded from the starting lineup due to his prolonged slump, and ended the season sluggishly with 27 earned runs in 30 ⅓ innings after reaching the milestone.
“Lauer, who was a member of the Milwaukee Brewers until last year, played for San Diego in the past. Over the past two years, he has been on the injured list due to elbow and shoulder pain. There is a possibility that he did not show his full strength last year due to his lack of fastball pitching due to the injury,” said the Major League’s Trade Rumors.
The media outlet said Ryu displayed good pitching in his return match last year after surgery to join ligaments in his left elbow. He left an ERA of 3.46 through 11 starts last year. He played only once in five innings last year, and pitched more than 90 pitches.
“Ryu’s average pitching speed was 88.8 miles last year, the lowest in his career, and his strikeout rate of 17 percent was the third lowest since his debut in the big league. He allowed nine homers in 52 innings and 1.56 homers per nine innings,” Ryu said.
Regarding the terms of their contract, the Major League Trade Rumors predicted, “Laurenzen may be able to sign a two-year contract, but Ryu Hyun-jin and Lauer will be able to sign for less than $10 million.”
