A year was perfect Ryu Hyunjin’s contract ended in failure
Ryu Hyun-jin (35) gave the Toronto Blue Jays a four-year, $80 million contract ahead of the 2020 season. However, Ryu is unlikely to meet Toronto’s expectations.
Ryu is currently on the injured list due to left forearm pain and elbow inflammation. Some predicted that the departure would be prolonged on the 9th (hereinafter referred to as Korean time).
Even if he is not injured, Ryu Hyun-jin is falling short of Toronto’s expectations. Ryu had a 5.33 ERA in six games before his injury.
He hit five home runs while pitching 27 innings in six games this season, and struck out only 16. In addition, there are more than 10 hits per nine innings.
Toronto gave Ryu Hyun-jin an annual average of $20 million after seeing him win the ERA title in 2019. I expected Ryu Hyun-jin to be an ace.
However, Ryu Hyun-jin led the Toronto mound in the 2020 season, which was a shortened season. Ryu Hyun-jin had a 4.37 ERA last year.
He has not been able to pay his ransom due to injuries following his slump this season. The outlook for the 2023 season, the last year of his contract with Toronto, is also gloomy 실시간파워볼
At this rate, it will be evaluated that Toronto’s 4-80 million dollars to Ryu Hyun-jin, who is in his mid-30s, was the wrong choice.
In order for Ryu Hyun-jin to reverse this evaluation, he must show his 2020 season without injury. Ryu had a 2.69 ERA in 12 games in the 2020 season.
