This time, he is the Miami Marlins. Ryu Hyun-jin, 37, of the FA, is in Okinawa, Japan, and Rumor is traveling all over the U.S.
Marlin Maniac, who is in charge of the Miami Marlins at the Fanside, said on Tuesday (Korea time), “Will Miami be able to sign Ryu Hyun-jin? It is a potential short-term solution to their pitching needs. He is a veteran player who is welcomed.”
With Ryu still out of contract in late January, he will travel virtually all over the U.S. with his ramen noodles at the forefront. His body is in Okinawa, Japan, with Hanwha Eagles pitchers. He is steadily training individually. However, word of mouth goes viral in the U.S. throughout the offseason.
With the mention of Miami, few clubs are not connected to Ryu Hyun-jin. Marlin Maniac said, “The veteran FA over 10 years has been an All-Star and Cy Young candidate, and if the Marlins can accept it, a short-term contract makes sense.”
“Ryu Hyun-jin has just finished surgery, so there may be concerns about his durability. That’s why he will sign a one-year contract to get another big contract,” Maniac said. “Jani Cueto received $8.5 million last season and received a team option for 10.5 million in 2024. Can he give $15 million including incentives to sign a contract with Ryu? Scott Boras said it could be difficult if he wants more money, but it’s a one-year contract.” 헤라카지노도메인
Miami ace Sandy Alcantara will skip the 2024 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October last year. It is difficult for Ryu to fill in Alcantara’s role, but Miami could consider recruiting Ryu to reinforce its depth.
“Ryu Hyun-jin is suitable as a replacement for Alcantara for one year. If the deal is concluded, it is a win-win for both sides. The Marlins lose their ace for one year, but they can sign a competitive ace for that one year. Ryu still has a lot of mileage. If he proves that, he could sign a multi-year contract including opt-out,” said Marlin Maniac.
However, if Miami actually offers Ryu, chances are slim that Ryu will accept it. Miami advanced to the postseason by ranking third in the NL East in the 2023 season, but it was far from a championship title. It is not even a big market.
