Hyun-Jin Ryu inks four-year deal with the Blue Jays

Hyun-Jin Ryu agreed to a four-year, $80 million deal with the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Ryu gives the Blue Jays an ace they have been searching for all off-season. He had fantastic 2019, leading the majors in ERA (2.89). Ryu's fantasy value takes a hit, switching from the NL to the AL and pitching half his games at hitter-friendly Rogers Centre. He owned a 14-5 record, 2.32 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 163 strikeouts across 182 2/3 innings pitched for the Dodgers last season. With a switch to leagues and a new supporting cast, it will be tough for Ryu to repeat his dominant 2019 campaign.

Hyun-Jin Ryu unlikely to sign with Blue Jays

While the Blue Jays remain interested in free agent SP Hyun-Jin Ryu, Toronto is unlikely to sign the left-hander.

Fantasy Impact

This isn't a surprise given the fact that Ryu is said to be interested in remaining on the west coast, if not re-signing with the Dodgers. Ryu is the top arm remaining on the free agent market, and given the big early contracts that have been signed he's in line for a huge deal coming off a stellar 2019 season. Ryu will be a popular arm in 2020 fantasy baseball drafts regardless of his landing spot.

Hyun-Jin Ryu drawing interest from Blue Jays

The Blue Jays have expressed interest in free agent SP Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Fantasy Impact

Ryu is in a perfect spot to cash in after a pristine 2019 campaign. While he could ultimately chase the best contract he can find, there is speculation that he would prefer to remain on the west coast, if not rejoin the Dodgers. The Blue Jays are one of many teams that have expressed interest in Ryu, and his landing spot will ultimlately play some role in his draft day cost. Still, he's likely to be one of the top arms targeted following his stellar 2019 campaign.

Hyun-Jin Ryu dominant in final start of 2019

Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 14-5 on Saturday against the Giants, tossing seven shutout innings while allowing just five hits and striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Ryu didn't walk anyone in this one, which lowered his ERA to 2.32 on the season. Ryu was absolutely dominant in the first half of 2019 before scuffling a bit in late-August. He'll undoubtedly be a finalist for the National League Cy Young award. However, Jacob deGrom could wind up edging him out for first place.

Hyun-Jin Ryu earns 13th win, homers in the process

Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 13-5 on Sunday versus the Rockies, twirling seven innings of three-run ball while striking out eight.

Fantasy Impact

Ryu allowed six hits and didn't walk anyone. He allowed two homers but also homered himself off Antonio Senzatela. The 32-year-old Cy Young candidate hit a rough patch a couple of weeks ago, but has now allowed just three runs over his last 14 innings. For the season he now owns a 2.41 ERA with a 156/24 K/BB ratio.
