2014

2013

Ryu has been regarded as one of the most dominant pitchers in Korea for the past six years. He was the 2006 MVP in the Korean Baseball Organization as a rookie, was the winning starting pitcher for the 2008 South Korean Olympic team in the gold medal game against Cuba and was a top starter for South Korea in the 2009 WBC. While he was just 9-9 last season for the Hanwha Eagles, he had a 2.66 ERA with 210 strikeouts and 46 walks in 182.2 innings. The stocky (6-foot-1, 220 pound) left-handed starter has a four-pitch arsenal with a fastball that sits at 88-91 mph, but will reach 94 mph. While several Korean players have become stars in the US, Ryu will be the first player to directly move from the KBO to MLB. As a result, it is hard to know how he will adapt to the changing environment, but he will get a chance to win a spot in a MLB rotation after the Dodgers paid a $25.7 million posting fee and then signed him to a six-year, $36 million contract in December.
