  • Hyun Jin Ryu: Signs eight-year KBO deal

    Ryu signed an eight-year, $12.4 million contract Wednesday with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

    Ryu will turn 37 years old in March, and after signing a long-term deal overseas, his time in the majors is almost assuredly over. Assuming Ryu's deal doesn't contain an early out clause that would allow him to explore opportunities in North America, he'll finish his MLB career with a 3.27 ERA and 1.18 WHIP across 11 seasons spent with the Dodgers and Blue Jays.

  • Hyun Jin Ryu: Headed for KBO

    Ryu is expected to finalize a four-year contract with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization in the coming days, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

    Ryu started 11 games for the Blue Jays this past season after completing his recovery from June 2022 Tommy John surgery, posting a 3.46 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with a 38:14 K:BB across 52 innings. The 36-year-old became a free agent this offseason, and after apparently not receiving any MLB offers to his liking, he's elected to return to the KBO, where he began his professional career before heading to North America in 2013. Though the length of his deal with Hanwha isn't known, given his advancing age, Ryu's MLB career could well be over.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Excluded from wild-card roster

    Ryu is not on the Blue Jays' AL Wild Card Series roster, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Ryu wasn't going to get a start in the series and has made just one relief appearance in his entire career, so his exclusion from the roster isn't a surprise. He could potentially be added should the Jays advance to the ALDS.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Lasts just three innings

    Ryu did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits over three innings against the Rays. He struck out one and did not issue any walks.

    Ryu got knocked around early, giving up one run on three hits in the first inning as the Rays took an early lead. He would allow another four hits over the next two frames before being relieved by Trevor Richards to open the fourth. The lefty has now failed to make it through five innings in three consecutive starts, allowing six or more hits in each of those outings. Ryu also recorded just one strikeout on the day, which marked his season low.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Rocked by Rays

    Ryu came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Rays, coughing up five runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out two.

    Two of the long balls came in the first inning, as Ryu served up a solo shot to Yandy Diaz and a three-run blast to Josh Lowe. The veteran southpaw avoided his fourth loss of the season when the Blue Jays took the lead in the top of the eighth inning, only for closer Jordan Romano to blow the save in the ninth. Ryu's failed to complete five innings in two straight starts, and he has a 4.32 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 17:9 K:BB through 25 innings in September. With the Jays in a dogfight for a wild-card spot, he may need to step things up in his final outing of the regular season -- a rematch with the Rays back in Toronto next weekend.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Goes 4.2 innings vs. Red Sox

    Ryu did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing six hits and two walks over 4.2 scoreless innings against Boston. He struck out two.

    Ryu held the Red Sox off the board Sunday, though he wasn't able to make it through the fifth inning after throwing 83 pitches. While the Jays continue to monitor the left-hander's pitch count, Ryu's provided a steadying presence in the rotation since returning from Tommy John surgery in early August, going 3-3 with a 2.62 ERA in nine starts (44.2 innings). He's currently scheduled for a road matchup with the Rays in his next outing.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Punches out five in loss

    Ryu (3-3) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over six innings in a 6-3 loss to the Rangers. He struck out five.

    Ryu had his first quality start in Tuesday's outing, as it was his first time going more than five innings this season. The 36-year-old has been solid since returning from Tommy John surgery on Aug. 1, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 33:9 K:BB in 40 innings. Ryu is slated to start at Boston in his next outing.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Falls to Oakland

    Ryu (3-2) took the loss Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over five innings in a 5-2 loss against the Athletics. He struck out five.

    Ryu pitched well Wednesday, but Carlos Perez's two-run homer in the fourth inning proved to be enough to stick the left-hander with a loss. Ryu has yet to allow more than two earned runs in a start since his first outing of the year on Aug. 1. His ERA sits at 2.65 with a 1.06 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB through his first seven starts (34 innings) this season. Ryu's currently lined up for a home matchup with the Rangers in his next outing.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Solid versus Rockies

    Ryu did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over five innings while striking out three in the Blue Jays' 13-9 win over the Rockies.

    Ryu was solid in a tough road setting in Colorado, limiting the damage to just a two-run homer by Elehuris Montero in the bottom of the third inning. The left-hander has now allowed two or fewer runs in each of his last five outings, posting a 1.50 ERA with 20 strikeouts over 24 innings in those starts. Ryu will look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, which is tentatively set to come in Oakland on Wednesday.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Wins third straight

    Ryu (3-1) picked up the win Saturday, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits over five-plus innings in an 8-3 victory over the Guardians. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The veteran southpaw got hit hard on occasion, serving up solo shots to Jose Ramirez and light-hitting Tyler Freeman, but the only other run on his ledger came after he exited the game in the top of the sixth and was helped along by a Matt Chapman error. Ryu's ratios have been aided by unearned runs in three straight starts, but he's won all three and has a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:5 K:BB through 24 innings since making his return from Tommy John surgery. On the downside, he has yet to record an out in the sixth inning in any of his five outings. Ryu could carry some extra fantasy risk in his next start, which is likely to come next weekend in Coors Field.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Strikes out seven in second win

    Ryu (2-1) earned the win Sunday, allowing two unearned runs on four hits and one walk over five innings against the Reds. He struck out seven.

    Holding a 9-2 lead after five, there was no need for the Blue Jays to extend Ryu, as they continue to play it safe with the 36-year-old lefty who has looked solid in four starts since returning from Tommy John surgery. An even better sign for Ryu was the seven strikeouts he recorded in five innings after having recorded eight total in his previous 14 innings. Ryu will look to increase his workload next week in a start tentatively scheduled for Saturday at home against Cleveland.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Earns first win

    Ryu (1-1) earned the win Sunday, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over five innings against the Cubs. He struck out three.

    Ryu was able to keep his normal turn in the rotation and pitched well despite being forced from his last start after taking a comebacker off his right knee. Making just his third start of the season after returning from Tommy John surgery, Ryu allowed two unearned runs in the first inning, then allowed only one more hit over his next four frames as the Jays staked him to a six-run lead and were not forced to extend him beyond five innings. Ryu's next scheduled start is lined up for next weekend's series in Cincinnati.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: In line to start Sunday

    Ryu (knee) is listed as the Blue Jays' scheduled starter Sunday versus the Cubs, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Ryu was forced from his previous outing Monday in Cleveland after being struck on the right knee by a comebacker. X-rays came back clean, however, and he is on track to take the ball for his next turn, provided he gets through a bullpen session Friday with no issues. The left-hander had tossed four scoreless innings against the Guardians before his exit.

  • Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: X-rays clean on knee

    X-rays taken Tuesday on Ryu's right knee turned up negative for any structural damage, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Ryu was removed from his start Monday against the Guardians after taking a comebacker off his knee, but it's looking like he will be able to take his next turn in the Blue Jays' rotation Sunday versus the Cubs. The veteran left-hander has posted a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB in nine innings (two starts) since returning Aug. 1 from Tommy John surgery.
