How much will Ryu Hyun-jin get in free agency? Predictions are pouring in from the local media.
New York Post Major League Baseball columnist John Heyman, along with two unnamed experts and his own projections on Wednesday, projected the starting pitcher free agency market.
In total, 16 starting pitchers were mentioned, including Ryu Hyun-jin.
He predicted that Ryu “showed a solid finish and will earn a major league contract.”
One expert projected a one-year, $13 million deal, another projected a one-year, $10 million deal plus incentives, and Heyman projected a one-year, $12 million deal.
Since returning from Tommy John surgery, Ryu has gone 3-3 with a 3.46 ERA in 52 innings over 11 games.
He had a 1.288 WHIP, 1.6 hits per nine innings, 2.4 walks, and 6.6 strikeouts. His velocity was down, but he overcame it with his command.
It was a positive performance considering it was his first season back after Tommy John surgery. There’s room for improvement next season. 아톰카지노 주소
The New York Post also took note of this. They gave him a generous projection of more than $10 million.
They named Blake Snell as the biggest free agent signing. Projections ranged from five years and $185 million to six years and $200 million.
Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Aaron Nola, Jordan Montgomery, and Eduardo Rodriguez were the other starting pitchers projected to command more than $100 million on the market.
Additionally, Sonny Gray, Lucas Giolito, Clayton Kershaw, Michael Waka, Zach Flaherty, Seth Lugo, Michael Lorenzen, Kyle Hendricks, Kyle Gibson, and James Paxton were projected as free-agent starters to earn more than $10 million.
