The New York Mets are being mentioned again as a destination for Ryu Hyun-jin (36).
MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball, released an interview with David Stearns
President of Baseball Operations for the Mets, on the 11th (Korean time) and reported that the Mets are considering additional recruitment. 카지노사이트 백링크
They are also showing interest in recruiting starting pitchers, suggesting that they may recruit Ryu Hyun-jin, who is still in the free agent market.
However, this is only possible if the ransom price falls further.
The Mets secured starting pitchers including Senga Kodai, Jose Quintana, and Sean Manea.
There are many other prospects, but when talking about starting pitchers, President Stearns said 토토사이트 백링크
It seems like the reinforcement of starting pitchers is not over,’” and predicted that the Mets will recruit additional pitchers.
“We will continue to look for ways we can improve, how we can be better, and ways we can add,” Stearns said. I think we have made significant progress.
I like the players we added to the starting rotation, but since we don’t have enough starting pitchers
we will continue to monitor (the market situation),” he said, expressing his intention to reinforce players.
There remain starting resources in the free agent market, including National League Cy Young Award winners Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery.
Ryu Hyun-jin, Michael Lorenzen and others still haven’t found a new team. The Mets seem willing to recruit them if their prices fall.
“The Mets have not been connected to any of the remaining free agents,” said. Snell, Montgomery and others are known to be pursuing multi-year contracts.
If the prices of low-level pitchers like Ryu Hyun-jin and Lorenzen fall, the Mets may look at them.
Unless other teams propose a trade to the Mets, they won’t make the first move
he said, predicting that if Ryu Hyun-jin’s price goes down, a trip to the Mets could happen.
Initially, the Mets were a likely destination for Ryu Hyun-jin. This is because the Mets were looking for a left-handed starting pitcher. 메이저사이트 백링크
However, the Mets signed a two-year contract worth a total of $28 million (about 36.8 billion won) with Manea instead of Ryu Hyun-jin.
With veteran left-handed pitcher Manea wearing the Mets uniform, Ryu Hyun-jin’s move to New York seemed to be a failure.
Local American media also said that the possibility of Ryu Hyun-jin going to the Mets has become slim.
In that way, the Mets seemed to be erased from Ryu Hyun-jin’s destination list.
However, as the Mets expressed their intention to reinforce starting pitchers
Ryu Hyun-jin also appears to be rapidly emerging as a leading candidate.
The Mets have already exceeded the salary cap, so they are collecting veterans on short-term contracts in this Stove League.
If Ryu Hyun-jin, who has a long history in the major leagues, joins, the starting mound can be raised even further.
Ryu Hyun-jin has 10 years of major league experience. Ryu Hyun-jin, who joined the LA Dodgers in 2013
successfully made a soft landing on the Major League stage, recording 14 wins, 8 losses, and an ERA of 3.00 in 30 games.
He continued to do his part as a starting pitcher in 2014, recording 14 wins, 7 losses, and an ERA of 3.38.
Although there were seasons where he was unable to play due to injury, a healthy Ryu Hyun-jin always performed overwhelmingly. In the 2018 season
he recorded 7 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 1.97 in 15 games, and in the 2019 season
he recorded 14 wins, 5 losses, and an ERA of 2.32 in 29 games.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who qualified as a free agent, signed a four-year $80 million (approximately KRW 105.2 billion) contract with Toronto ahead of the 2020 season and changed teams.
In the 2020 season, which was shortened due to COVID-19, he served as Toronto’s ace by recording 5 wins, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 2.69 in 12 games.
Thanks to Ryu Hyun-jin’s performance, Toronto also reached the postseason stage.
Ryu Hyun-jin also played an active part in the 2021 season with 31 games, 14 wins, 10 losses, and an average ERA of 4.37.
But injuries got in the way again. In 2022, he played only 6 games, with 2 wins and an ERA of 5.67, and underwent elbow ligament fusion surgery (Tommy John surgery).
After going through a long tunnel of rehabilitation, Ryu Hyun-jin returned in the middle of the 2023 season and recorded 3 wins, 3 losses, and an average ERA of 3.46 in 11 games.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who is in his late 30s and has a history of surgery, has reduced velocity, but he has used his strength, his razor-sharp control, to face major league sluggers.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who had a successful comeback season, entered the free agent market.
Ryu Hyun-jin expressed his desire to play more in the major leagues, and his agent Scott Boras also said
Healthy starting pitchers are receiving interest from many clubs.
The same goes for Ryu Hyun-jin,” he said, adding that Ryu Hyun-jin will play in the United States in the 2024 season as well.
There was a move to recruit Ryu Hyun-jin, but there was little news of the transfer.
Including the Mets, the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, San Diego Padres, and Baltimore Orioles showed interest in recruiting Ryu Hyun-jin.
In this Stove League, starting pitchers are receiving valuable treatment, and Ryu Hyun-jin was an attractive enough item for a team looking for a solid starting pitcher even without spending a lot of money.
Local media estimates Ryu Hyun-jin’s annual ransom to be around $13 million (about 16.8 billion won).
This is the result of predicting Ryu Hyun-jin’s price by comparing it to the price of veteran pitchers who previously signed free agent contracts.
NBC Sports, an American sports media outlet, said, “Looking at the case of Luis Severino
who recently signed a one-year contract worth $13 million with the New York Yankees, Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to sign a similar contract.
I think 1 to 2 years would be a reasonable period,” he said.
The Mets see Ryu Hyun-jin’s value at less than $13 million. It appears that the ransom will have a greater impact on the contract than health issues.
If Ryu Hyun-jin’s price set by the Mets falls to the appropriate amount
billionaire’ team owner Steve Cohen is expected to make a move.
Meanwhile, the Mets are expected to continue strengthening their power.
Veteran hitters with All-Star experience, such as JD Martinez and Justin Turner, are also receiving attention.
The bullpen also left open the possibility of additional recruitment.
Since we have high-quality bullpen resources such as Edwin Diaz, we plan to contact bullpen pitchers who can sign short-term contracts.
