Ryu Hyun-jin’s FA rumor trip. This time, it is the San Francisco Giants. Bleacher Report connected Ryu Hyun-jin and San Francisco on the 3rd (hereinafter referred to as Korean time) following the 1st. Citing the remaining major FAs, he predicted that Ryu will sign with San Francisco. It did not disclose the contract period or amount.
It is true that San Francisco’s starting lineup is not stable. It did recruit Robbie Ray to back up its ace Logan Webb in a trade. Ray, however, is expected to return to the second half of the season at the earliest due to rehabilitation following Tommy John surgery. He signed a five-year, 115 million-dollar contract with the Seattle Mariners, and can declare himself an FA after the end of this season. He is San Francisco’s winning pitcher.마카오카지노도메인
He hired a fastball pitcher named Jordan Hicks, but he never proved himself as a starter. Bleacher Report’s logic is that it would be good if Ryu Hyun-jin added strength one way or another. If Ryu Hyun-jin’s trip to San Francisco is made, it is expected that there will be a story such as a reunion for the first time in three years since Ray and the Toronto Blue Jays, and the first time in his life with Lee Jung-hoo.
The reality is that it is difficult for San Francisco to win the title in the National League West due to the presence of the Los Angeles Dodgers. However, there is a possibility that the team will actually appeal to Ryu in terms of the district, region, large city, and presence of Lee Jung-hoo.
In fact, Ray took the Toronto ace over Ryu Hyun-jin during his severe ups and downs in the 2021 season and won the Cy Young Award for the first time in his career. He used the Cy Young title as a springboard to sign a mega contract. The combination of Ryu Hyun-jin and Lee Jung-hoo, who had never met before in the KBO League, is also exciting. Ryu Hyun-jin can greatly help Lee Jung-hoo adapt to the Major League.
Bleacher Report said, “Ryu spent the first four months of the season recovering from Tommy John surgery. Later, Ryu made his season debut in early August. He threw well enough to prove that he was still in the tank.” It seems that Ryu has made a comeback by not getting sick anymore and just showing off his strengths.
In addition, Bleacher Report said, “While San Francisco waits for the newly acquired Ray to be active again, Ryu Hyun-jin will be a great stopgap for the starting lineup.” Since he is a short-term contract candidate anyway, the nuance is that it is enough to hold out until Ray returns.
