This time it’s the Milwaukee Brewers. Ryu Hyun-jin (36) was mentioned as a team he could transfer to next season.
American media outlet BVM Sports said on the 15th (Korean time), “With Brandon Woodruff undergoing shoulder surgery, external recruitment must be considered. In a situation where Woodruff may miss the entire next season, recruiting a veteran pitcher as a free agent is also being considered.” He said.
The veteran pitcher here is Ryu Hyun-jin.
The media said, “Three veteran pitchers, including Ryu Hyun-jin, Kyle Gibson, and Carlos Carrasco, are potential candidates for Milwaukee to sign. They are expected to have a market value of less than $10 million and could provide valuable depth to the starting rotation.” I pointed out.스포츠토토
Woodruff was on the operating table that day. In fact, it was something that was expected. This is because his postseason appearance was canceled after he complained of shoulder pain ahead of the Wild Card Series.
His shoulder was a problem during the season as well. Woodruff, who pitched only two games last April and was placed on the injured list due to right shoulder inflammation, did not return until August. His records this season are 11 games, 67 innings, 5 wins, 1 loss, and an average ERA of 2.28.
He tried to regain his honor in fall baseball, but even this did not work out. The shoulder pain came again, and I ended up having to have surgery.
He went 46-26 with a 3.10 ERA and 788 strikeouts in 130 games and 680⅓ innings over seven major league seasons. Among pitchers who have pitched at least 600 innings in a Milwaukee uniform, Woodruff’s ERA and WHIP (1.05) are the highest in franchise history.
He who was like this will disappear from the starting rotation next season. Because he needs at least a year of rehabilitation.
This is an emergency for Milwaukee as well. We have the task of finding a starting pitcher right away. That’s how Ryu Hyun-jin’s name appeared.
We Sports Heroics said, “36-year-old Ryu Hyun-jin successfully returned to the mound this year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2022. He recorded an ERA of 3.46 and WHIP of 1.29 in 11 starts. He will definitely have his first year back from injury in 2024. “Ryu Hyun-jin is a perfect candidate for a one-year contract. According to statistics website Spotrac, the market value is expected to be $8.1 million (approximately 10.9 billion won).”
