Report: Hyun-Jin Ryu will be posted todayBy
Via JoongAng Daily: The Korea Baseball Organization will inform MLB today that Hyun-Jin Ryu has officially been posted. MLB has four days to officially inform the 30 clubs, who will then have about a week to submit a bid. The Hanwha Eagles will then get four days to accept or reject the top bid for their ace left-hander.
Ryu, 25, has been one of the KBO’s most dominant pitchers for the last several years. He and the Eagles have agreed on an acceptable bid, meaning if the top bid falls short of their agreed upon amount, Hanwha will reject it and the southpaw will remain in Korea. I highly doubt we’re talking about a Yu Darvish-sized bid here, but I bet it will be in the eight-figures. Everything you need to know about Ryu, a Scott Boras client, is right here. There is no indication that the Yankees (or any club) has interest in him, but can be sure there will be considering his age and left-handedness.
