Los Angeles Dodgers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ryu only made 15 starts on the season, but made such an impression with the Dodgers that they extended him a qualifying offer, which he accepted. He will make $17.9 million this season while trying to exceed the 150-inning threshold for the first time since 2014. Ryu outpitched his peripherals for a second consecutive season as his ERA and FIP were a full run apart once again -- he has been able to strand more than 80% of runners in each of the past two seasons. Ryu improved his K-BB% 10 percentage points over 2017 by cutting his walk rate nearly in half while upping his strikeouts. Ryu's swinging-strike rate has risen each "full" season he has pitched in the majors. The 192 innings he threw as a rookie remains his high water mark and will likely stay that way for his career. Eventually, the peripherals and the outcomes will collide, but even a full run rise would still leave him with a strong ERA. Read Past Outlooks
