Hyun Jin Ryu News
Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Saturday. It was a revision UCL reconstruction with a flexor tendon repair. The 35-year-old underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career and will miss the rest of the 2022 season. The typical recovery timeline is 12-to-18 months, meaning he won't be able to return until at least the second half of the 2023 season. Ryu finishes the 2022 season with a 5.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 16 strikeouts, and four walks across 27 innings. The southpaw will look to make a full recovery and return at some point during the 2023 season.
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) will be undergoing surgery on his forearm soon, according to Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins. However, the exact procedure has yet to be determined. Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports that Tommy John surgery is on the table, but that Ryu could alternatively undergo a partial repair of his forearm. Davidi also clarified that the expectation is that Ryu will be out for at least the rest of the year, and potentially longer. If this estimation indeed comes true, then Ryu's 2022 campaign comes to an end after just six starts. He went 2-0 over those six starts with a 5.67 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) is expected to miss significant time with his forearm injury. The Blue Jays are currently gathering multiple opinion's on Ryu's injury while he's on the injured list. The 35-year-old left-hander will visit with Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Thursday, but fantasy managers shouldn't be expecting Ryu back anytime soon. Ryu was 2-0 on the year before his injury, but he had an uninspiring 5.33 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 16 strikeouts and four walks in 27 innings over his first six starts. For now, there's no timetable for when Ryu will return to the Jays rotation, but it's unlikely to come until after the All-Star break. Ross Stripling will benefit and remain in the rotation.
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was one of the few constants in a world of uncertainty in 2020. The $80 million free agent signing was exactly what Toronto needed as he led the team in starts (12), innings (67), wins (five), and strikeouts (72). Ryu's success predates the pandemic-shortened season, however. Dating back to 2018 with the Dodgers, Ryu has a 2.30 ERA supported by a 3.06 FIP across a 332 inning sample. Ryu keeps hitters off balance with an expanded arsenal, throwing all five of his pitches at least 10 percent of the time with a 17 MPH difference between his fastball and off-speed pitches. As a result, he's one of the elite pitchers in avoiding hard contact. His 3.2 percent barrel rate last season was among the best in the game and his 86.6 MPH average exit velocity over the last three years is in the top eighth percentile in baseball. Ryu isn't a strikeout artist, he has just a 22.3 percent career K-rate, but he'll put up solid ratios and pitch plenty of innings as the ace of the Blue Jays. He's a solid second-starter for fantasy and is fair value around pick 75 in fantasy drafts.
