The “Korean Monster” Ryu Hyun-jin, 36, who is a free agent in Major League Baseball (MLB), has received positive reviews, the official website of Major League Baseball, introduced Ryu in an article titled “7 Free Agents Looking to Shake Off Injury-Ridden Seasons” on June 24 (KST). “Hyun-jin Ryu successfully returned from the second elbow ligament reconstruction surgery of his career (Tommy John surgery) and posted a 3.46 ERA in 52 innings pitched in 11 starts in 2023,” said.

“His trademark command is back in full force, and he ranks tied for fourth in MLB with a 47.6 percent strike zone percentage among pitchers who have thrown at least 750 pitches .”According to MLB stats site Baseball Sabermetrics, 395 of Ryu’s 830 pitches this year have been in the “shadow zone,” the area near the strike zone. e shadow zone is the width of the area where one pitch falls inside and outside the strike zone boundaries This means that even though Ryu hasn’t fully regained his velocity since returning from injury, he has a sophisticated arsenal of pitches to offset it.” Given that he doesn’t have to rely on his hardball, Ryu could have a successful 2024 season, when he’ll be 37,” said. This is an encouraging assessment after a recent string of somewhat pessimistic reports about Ryu. Earlier, ESPN’s Jeff Passan ranked Ryu as a Tier 6 free agent, and baseball statistician Dan Zimboski projected Ryu’s 2024 numbers to be 6-5 토토 with a 4.38 ERA in 17 games and 86 1/3 innings.
