Hyun Jin Ryu News
The Toronto Blue Jays placed starting pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu (neck) on the 10-day injured list due to neck tightness on Sunday. Fellow pitcher Tayler Saucedo was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins told the media that the hope is that Ryu only misses one start before returning to the rotation. The 34-year-old lefty has struggled in each of his last two outings, giving up a total of 12 earned runs over just 4.1 innings. He is 13-9 with a 4.34 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP on the year. He'll be out until at least the middle of next week. Fantasy managers who play through the entirety of next week may want to keep him in an IL spot as there's a chance he can be used one last time this year.
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu struggled in his start on Friday, allowing five runs in two innings pitched in the club's 7-3 loss to the Twins. The veteran pitched into the third frame, but after a single, double, and back-to-back homers, he was ultimately yanked without recording an out. His line finished with him allowing five hits and a walk with two strikeouts in the brief 48-pitch effort as he seen his record drop to 13-9 on the year. Ryu has mostly struggled in the second half which has led to his ERA and WHIP climb to 4.34 and 1.21, respectively. He'll be a borderline start in his next matchup versus the Rays next week.
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was sharp on Monday, tossing six-shutout frames in the club's 8-0 win over the Yankees. The left-hander allowed three hits (all singles) without issuing a free pass while striking out six, throwing just 80 pitches to improve his record to 13-8 on the season. Ryu has had his struggles for the majority of the second half, so it was encouraging to see him hold a Yankees lineup off the scoreboard and off the base paths for most of the contest. He'll carry a 3.77 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into his next start versus the Orioles where he should be inserted into lineups.
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.
