Ryu Hyun-jin ‘Suddenly Down’ and ‘Invasion Rumors’ disappear one after another…A brinkmanship? Return to Hanwha?

My contract seemed to run out any minute. It has changed dramatically in the last few days. It is appropriate to say, “I must be on the verge of collapse.” Rumors of recruitment are disappearing one after another. Where will Korean Monster Ryu Hyun-jin (37) go.

The free agent (FA) starting pitcher of the Major League Baseball (MLB) is extremely expensive. The basic fee is 10 million U.S. dollars. FA pitchers in their 30s are also spending a lot of money.

Kenta Maeda (Detroit, $24 million for two years), Michael Waka (Kansas City, $32 million for two years), Frankie Montas (Cincinnati, $16 million for one year), Luis Severino (New York Mets, $13 million for one year), and Lance Lynn (St. Louis, $11 million for one year).

Ryu Hyun-jin also said he would benefit from this trend. Not a few teams need veteran starters. The New York Mets, Baltimore, Boston, and San Diego were mentioned. It was only a few days ago. 안전한 파워볼사이트

Suddenly, things changed. Boston took Lucas Giolito for two years and $38.5 million. The Mets signed Sean Manaea for two years and $28 million.

This means that the team that Ryu can go to is gone. The New York Post said, “We don’t know if Ryu Hyun-jin is still on the Mets’ radar.”

It’s not completely “Nakdonggang Oriole.” We don’t know yet. Baltimore is still looking for a starter. The starting lineup is young. We need experience. Ryu is right. San Diego also needs a starter.

Instead, the heated atmosphere cooled down. Ryu Hyun-jin seems to have to be chosen in an atmosphere where he can choose. The FA market is always changing.

In fact, the Korean team is not in a position to compete for luxury goods. The ML spring camp is still more than a month away. The contract is completed at any time. Currently, Ryu has started preparations for this season in Okinawa, Japan.

Ryu’s agent is Scott Boras, the devil. He gives the player the best contract under any circumstances. He also uses “wrenching tactics” if necessary.

Ryu once experienced this. After the 2012 season, he signed a contract with the Dodgers through the posting system. He dramatically completed the contract with less than one minute left before the deadline. It was 36 million dollars for six years.

Prince Fielder became a free agent after the 2011 season. His contract was Jan. 25, 2012. He completed a nine-year, $214 million contract with Detroit. His agent was Boras.

Now it is January 9th. It is too early to call it “the end of the cliff.” Above all, Boras is excellent at reading market conditions. The starting price is high. As the camp approaches, more teams are moving to reinforce their power. Of course, it is a good news for Ryu. Boras also has a wider range of movements.

There is also the last card. He will return to the Hanwha Eagles. Hanwha says, “Welcome back anytime.” The team will have an ace instantly. The weight of the starters will also completely change. They also have plenty of room for salary cap. If they sign a multi-year contract, the highest amount in KBO league history will be sufficient.
