All but Ryu Hyun-jin are under contract. Now it’s just a matter of deciding where Ryu will go. Ryu’s former LA Dodgers teammate, Alex Wood, has found a team.
MLB Insider’s Robert Murray wrote on his social media account on July 28, “Alex Wood has agreed to terms with the Oakland Athletics. Pending a medical,” he wrote.
Wood has a career record of 76-65 with a 3.74 ERA in 269 games (202 starts) since making his Major League debut in 2013. From 2015 to 2018, he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, sharing the mound with Hyun-jin Ryu. Last year, he entered free agency with a 5-5 record and 4.33 ERA in 29 games (12 starts) for the San Francisco Giants. 온라인카지노 He is a left-handed pitcher who is capable of both starting and bullpen duty and can still throw a hardball.
Wood is categorized as a pitcher who can provide a 3-5 starter role in free agency. The list included James Paxton (Los Angeles Dodgers), Sean Manaea (New York Mets), Michael Lorenzen, Michael Clevinger, Jacob Zunis, and, of course, Ryu Hyun-jin.
Most of them signed short-term contracts of one to three years, but averaged more than $10 million per year
With the inflation in the starting pitching market, pitchers’ salaries have skyrocketed, and they’re getting more than they bargained for. James Paxton, who recently signed with the Dodgers, signed a one-year deal worth up to $12 million. Paxton recently underwent Tommy John surgery and returned to action last year. He never pitched a full season of regulation innings, but he still received a contract worth over $10 million. 에볼루션 바카라사이트 It’s safe to assume that Wood’s deal will be no different.
The free-agent starting pitching market is coming to a head, with Blake Snell, Jordan Montgomery, and other Class A starters still undecided. Of the players left on the market, Ryu is the only one I’m really interested in keeping an eye on.
As players of similar status to Ryu have signed one after another, attention has turned to Ryu’s future destination. The Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres, and Baltimore Orioles have all been mentioned in local media as teams in need of starting pitching and where Ryu could play a role.
