It seems unlikely that Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto) and Tani Shohei (29) will eat together at the LA Angels. No matter how urgent a starting pitcher is, the Angels are unlikely to recruit Ryu Hyun-jin.메이저사이트
On the 21st (Korean time), Halo Hangout, which covers the Los Angeles Angels in the American media FanSided, introduced five starting pitchers that the Angels should stay away from this offseason. One of these people is Ryu Hyun-jin.
The media said, “The Angels haven’t had a starting pitcher in almost 10 years. Aside from Ohtani, there hasn’t been a clear No. 1 starter, which is the main reason the team hasn’t made it to the postseason since 2014,” adding, “Garrett Richards, Matt Shoemaker, Patrick “Sandoval and others had solid seasons, but with the exception of Ohtani, we haven’t been able to find a starting pitcher who can perform consistently for several years. This is the problem.”
He also said, “With the possibility of Ohtani becoming a free agent and leaving the team, the Angels will definitely look for a starting pitcher in the free agent market. Among these, there is a pitcher they should stay away from.”
Ryu Hyun-jin was selected as one of them. Ryu Hyun-jin, who returned a year and two months after undergoing Tommy John surgery and completing a long rehabilitation, is playing well every day to the point where his long absence is insignificant. He started 9 games until the 21st and is good with 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 2.62. He has 35 strikeouts and a WHIP of 1.12.
He’s not taking a ton of pitches or a ton of innings, but he’s held seven of his nine games to two earned runs or fewer. He is truly a pitcher by calculation.
Ryu Hyun-jin will qualify as a second free agent at the end of this season. That’s because his four-year contract with Toronto is coming to an end. Although he made a perfect return from injury and received high expectations from the local media, his considerable injury history appears to be considered a negative.
The media said, “When healthy, Ryu Hyun-jin was a solid starting pitcher during his major league career. The problem is that he played full-time for only 3 seasons out of 10 and stayed healthy,” and “(after returning from injury) he pitched effectively even though his velocity dropped. He pointed out, “The two main characteristics are that he suppresses hard contact, doesn’t walk too many times, and doesn’t strike out too many.”
He pointed out, “Ryu Hyun-jin has the potential for success next season, but he is entering his 37-year-old season. As a pitcher with durability issues, there is a need to question how many starts he has made. He is not suitable for a great pitcher.” .
