Are the Hanwha Eagles collecting the Dragon Ball one by one for Ryu’s return? Hanwha is sincerely working on Ryu’s return. In short, it is “all in.”
One of the issues in the Korean baseball community that is receiving the most attention in the 2024 season is whether Ryu Hyun-jin will return to the KBO League.헤라카지노
Ryu Hyun-jin, who spent a long time rehabilitating after undergoing ligament surgery in his elbow last year, pitched in 11 games in the 2023 season and recorded 3 wins, 3 losses and 3.46 ERA. Ryu Hyun-jin’s four-year, $80 million FA contract with the Toronto Blue Jays has been finalized after the 2023 season.
Ryu is still prioritizing his remaining in the U.S. Scott Boras, Ryu’s agent, also stressed that he will stay in the U.S. next year. As Ryu is a left-handed starting pitcher proven in the Major League, many predict that he will be able to secure enough single-year contract.
Contrary to his original expectations, Ryu Hyun-jin is seeking to remain in the Major League until the year is over. He seems to be waiting patiently until the terms of the contract with the club he wants come out.
Hanwha’s team, which desperately wants Ryu’s return more than anyone else, is also keeping an eye on his future course of action. In the FA market this winter, Hanwha recruited An Chi-hong, an infielder with an outside FA, for a total of 7.2 billion won (approx. There was a strong possibility to immediately recruit an additional outside FA, but Hanwha quietly watched the mood of the FA market.
Since then, Hanwha has signed veteran catcher Lee Jae-won from SSG Landers for 50 million won a year after setting internal FA pitcher Jang Min-jae at a total of 800 million won for 2+1 years.
Hanwha was considering recruiting additional foreign FA players because of the possibility of Ryu Hyun-jin’s return. With the possibility of Ryu Hyun-jin’s return, it is known that the team plans to spend all of its remaining salary cap space toward Ryu Hyun-jin.
A baseball official said, “Since Hanwha has been passive in recruiting additional FA from outside, many people have been paying attention to the possibility of Ryu Hyun-jin’s return. The entire club is said to be all-in on Ryu’s return throughout this winter. It is predicted that the total contract record (4+2 years of Doosan Bears Yang Eui-ji) in the KBO League could easily exceed 15.2 billion won.”
Hanwha is drawing keen attention as it has hired Jang Min-jae, Ryu’s “best junior,” and Lee Jae-won, the same player who was nominated as a rookie prior to Ryu. We wonder if Ryu will be able to return to his hometown wearing Hanwha’s uniform again.
