The value of Ryu Hyun-jin (36) still seems to be relevant in the major leagues. As predictions continue that we will be able to see him on the big league stage next year, he is also being strongly linked to the Milwaukee Brewers, who are ranked first in the National League Central Division this season.
On the 30th (Korean time), Just Baseball in the U.S. mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s name as a potential recruiting candidate for Milwaukee. In addition to Ryu Hyun-jin, Martin Perez, Alex Wood, and Kyle Gibson were nominated.굿모닝토토
Milwaukee’s starting rotation this season includes ace Corbin Burns (10-8, 3.39 ERA), Freddie Peralta (12-10, 3.86 ERA), Wade Miley (9-4, 3.14 ERA), and Colin Lea (6-6). Average ERA 4.55) and Adrian Hauser (8 wins, 5 losses, average ERA 4.12) came out.
We may not be able to see the five starters comprised like this next year. Miley and Leah qualify as free agents and enter the market. And another starting pitcher, Brandon Woodruff, is not expected to play next year due to shoulder surgery.
There is some speculation that Milwaukee, which is having difficulties forming a starting lineup, may recruit veteran pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin.
The media pointed out, “Although they are not players with star-level names, the market will show interest. Although they are veteran starters who are not among the top players in the free agent market, they are players who can play reliable innings in the middle and back of the starting rotation.” all.
He continued, “Milwaukee will not spend a lot of money, but they need to strengthen their starting lineup. These are viable options to help the starting rotation while young players work to establish themselves in the major leagues.”
Ryu Hyun-jin, who has been on the big league stage since 2013, is a veteran who has played 10 seasons until this year.
He clearly has a wealth of experience, so there is no need for additional verification. Moreover, next year will mark his second year since undergoing Tommy John surgery. It is said that pitchers who undergo Tommy John surgery usually pitch better in their second year.
Ryu Hyun-jin started 11 games this season and posted a record of 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 3.46 in 52 innings. In his first year back from surgery, he still showed off his control.
That’s why I’m looking forward to next year even more. Even in the United States, Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to play an active role in the big leagues next season.
Sports Illustrated (SI) predicted, “Ryu Hyun-jin signed a four-year contract with Toronto after making 11 starts after Tommy John surgery. He will turn 37 next year, but he will be able to have several more good seasons in the big league.” did.
