American baseball media Just Baseball mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s name while predicting the Milwaukee Brewers’ offseason on the 30th (Korean time). Choosing a starting pitcher as the first position needed, he selected “left-handers Ryu Hyun-jin, Martin Perez, Alex Wood, and James Paxton, right-handers Kyle Gibson, and right-handers Michael Lorenzen and Brad Keller” as potential candidates.
The media said, “Although it is not a group of star-studded names, the Brewers will be looking at the players listed above in the market,” adding, “In terms of price, they are not the top of the market, but veteran starters who can provide stable innings in the middle and back of the starting rotation. “Pitchers,” he said.
Milwaukee is expected to see many players leave the free agent market. “Woodruff, Teheran, Leah, and Lauer combined for a total of 405 innings in 2023,” he said. “A significant amount of innings that will be vacant must be filled next season.”
Milwaukee has promising players waiting for a call-up, but the media has taken a negative view. The media nailed it, saying, “There are some talents that fans can look forward to, but we should not enter 2024 with a starting rotation based on these names.”
Previously, Ryu Hyun-jin was mentioned as a target for Milwaukee. On the 27th, Reviewing the Brew, an American media outlet specializing in Milwaukee news, mentioned Ryu Hyun-jin’s name while analyzing positions that Milwaukee needs to strengthen.
Just Baseball previously predicted the Pittsburgh Pirates’ offseason and selected Ryu Hyun-jin along with Jordan Montgomery (Texas Rangers), Frankie Montas, and Luis Severino (New York Yankees) as free agent candidates who will anchor Pittsburgh’s starting lineup next season.
American media Rum Bunter also recently selected Ryu Hyun-jin as one of the five best free agent recruits for Pittsburgh. Rum Bunter said, “It would be difficult to expect Ryu Hyun-jin to play the role of an ace, just like in his prime,” but evaluated, “But he is still a decent pitcher who can achieve an ERA of around 3.80.”
This is evidence that Ryu Hyun-jin is still well-received in the market. Even after undergoing a second elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery), he returned and started 11 games this season, leaving a respectable record of 3 wins and 3 losses and an earned run average (ERA) of 3.46 in 52 innings.
On the 30th, Sports Illustrated (SI) also predicted the LA Dodgers’ offseason and also highlighted free agent players who were affiliated with the Dodgers. Regarding Hyun-Jin Ryu, “Legendary Babe Ryu completed a four-year contract with the Blue Jays after undergoing Tommy John surgery and making 11 solid starts. He will be 37 years old by opening day next year, but he has several more good seasons ahead of him.” “I can send it,” he said.
