RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Ryu enters 2015 as a mainstay in the Dodgers' rotation. He had a fantastic stateside debut in 2013 with the skills to back it up and suggest another such season in 2014 was coming. A pair of disastrous outings, during which he allowed 13 earned runs in just 4.1 innings, ruined what could have been a substantial jump in production. Without those starts, his ERA would have essentially matched his excellent FIP (2.62). Of course, you canít pick and choose which starts to take, but itís not like his 3.38 ERA was problematic. The only thing that really stopped him was a pair of injuries that cost him over a month of time. The shoulder issue cropped up again in the postseason, which puts some risk in the equation going forward. Thankfully, his price tag didnít shoot up after 2013 and itís unlikely to do so after another strong effort, so the discount you should apply for potential shoulder issues in 2015 is built in.

2014

A huge success in his first major league season, Ryu solidified the middle of the Dodgers' rotation, going 14-8 with a 3.00 ERA in 192 innings. With a fastball that sits in the low-90s, Ryu isn't an overpowering guy by any means, but his ratios were solid (7.2 K/9, 2.3 BB/9) and the southpaw has a smooth and easy delivery that would seem to make a repeat appear inevitable. He's a near-lock to start the team's third game of the season, especially since the Dodgers can alternate lefties and righties with Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Dan Haren locked into the other top-four spots in the rotation.

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.
