Ryu Hyun-jin Returns to Former Team Hanwha Eagles

Ryu Hyun-jin Returns to Hanwha… ‘17 Billion+α’ Contract Imminent

Ryu Hyun-jin (36) returns to his former team, the Hanwha Eagles, after 12 years.

According to a Yonhap News report on the 20th, Hanwha recently requested Ryu Hyun-jin’s status inquiry from the Major League Baseball (MLB) office through the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO).

And on this day, I received a reply that Ryu Hyun-jin was a free agent (FA).

Hanwha proceeded with ‘document work’ and ‘negotiations’ at the same time, but among the paperwork, there was a ‘request for release of arbitrarily terminated player status’. 온라인카지노사이트

Negotiations with Ryu Hyun-jin are not 100% complete yet.

Hanwha proposed a total of 17 billion won + α over four years.

It is known that all 17 billion won is the guaranteed amount.

Both the total amount and average annual salary (4.25 billion won) are the highest in the KBO league.

It appears that bonuses or clauses in the contract for Ryu Hyun-jin’s convenience will also be added.

After the 2012 season ended, Ryu Hyun-jin sought to advance to the American professional baseball major league through a posting (private competitive bidding) with the consent of Hanwha, and signed a six-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers for a total of $36 million.

Hanwha received a transfer fee of approximately 28 billion won (25,737,737 dollars and 33 cents) at the exchange rate at the time.

Korean seniors’ who entered the big league before Ryu Hyun-jin, including Park Chan-ho, the first Korean major leaguer, went to the United States without going through the KBO league and endured life in the minor league before appearing on the big league stage.

In the big league, Ryu Hyun-jin pitched in 186 games and posted a record of 78 wins, 48 ​​losses, 1 save, and an ERA of 3.27.

He also set records as the first Korean big leaguer, including leading the entire major league in earned run average (2019) and starting the All-Star Game (2019).

Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent surgery to repair the left shoulder labrum that risked his career as a player in May 2015, went to the operating table again in September 2016 to remove necrotic tissue in his left elbow.

In June 2022, I underwent elbow ligament joint surgery for the second time since my high school days.

Even after undergoing three surgeries in the big leagues, he returned to the mound in August of last year and posted a respectable record of 3 wins, 3 losses, and an ERA of 3.46.

Ryu Hyun-jin, whose four-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays (total of $80 million from 2020 to 2023) expired, was said to be relieved about his return to the KBO League after contemplating whether to return to Hanwha or remain in the big league.

Hanwha and Ryu Hyun-jin are refining the specific details of the contract.
