Ryu Hyun-jin, who signed a four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto ahead of the 2020 season, has ended. He qualified as a free agent again and found a new team. 

Ryu Hyun-jin is competitive enough to be the 4th or 5th starter, but he is likely to leave Toronto. Toronto’s starting lineup includes Kevin Gausman, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassett, and Yusei Kikuchi. These four recorded 10 wins and an ERA in the 3-point range this season. 

Alec Manoai was poor this year but recorded 16 wins last year, and minor league prospect Ricky Tiderman is expected to advance to the big league next year. Toronto’s priority is to reinforce hitters due to the absence of Ryu Hyun-jin’s $20 million annual salary. 

Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent Tommy John surgery last year and underwent rehabilitation for a year, returned in August this season and recorded 3 wins, 3 losses, and an average ERA of 3.46 in 11 games. In addition to the changeup, he also equipped a curveball, showing excellent speed control ability. 

Although he performed poorly in the final games of the season, he has the ability to play as a starting pitcher in the major leagues for another year or two. predicted last September, “If Ryu Hyun-jin continues his current performance, a multi-year contract on good terms will be possible.”  

On the 26th (Korean time), the American media outlet ‘Just Baseball’ predicted the reinforcement of the LA Angels’ starting pitchers in the free agent market and mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin as a candidate. The Angels will need to reinforce their starting pitchers for next season as Shohei Ohtani becomes a free agent.  

The media said, “Don’t expect the Angels to create a huge issue by recruiting players like Jordan Montgomery, Sonny Gray, and Aaron Nola. More likely is a starting pitcher in the tier below them. Maybe old friend Michael Lorenzen will join us again. He mentioned, “Hyun Jin Ryu is a possibility.”

Just Baseball said about Ryu Hyun-jin on the 25th, “Ryu Hyun-jin spent a significant period of this year and last year recovering from Tommy John surgery and on the injured list. The second half was strong. “There is gas left in the tank of ‘Korean Monster,’” he said. 

Lorenzen played for the LA Angels in the 2022 season, recording 8 wins, 6 losses, and an average ERA of 4.24 in 18 games. This season, he played for Detroit and Philadelphia, recording 9 wins, 9 losses, and an ERA of 4.18. 

The Angels have a similar environment to the LA Dodgers, where Ryu Hyun-jin played in the past. It is located in Anaheim, not far from Los Angeles, and has a warm climate and many Koreans, making it easy to adapt.
