Dodgers GM Ned Colletti signed Korean left handed pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu for 6 years, 36m. Ryu represents South Korea in the 2013 World Baseball Classic. He has All-Star potential. Ryu is dominant and can be counted on to pitch 6, 7 or 8 innings each start. This should take some pressure off the Dodgers bullpen. Nice sign by the LA Dodgers!
LA DODGERS ANNOUNCE A SIX-YEAR, $147M DEAL WITH 2009 AL CY YOUNG WINNER RHP ZACK GREINKE. THE TRIO OF CLAYTON KERSHAW, ZACK GREINKE, AND HYUN-JIN RYU MAY BE THE BEST STARTING 3 IN MLB…UNLESS YOU LOOK EAST TO THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS’ STRASBURG, GONZALEZ AND ZIMMERMANN. (AND ADD HAREN AND DETWILER, AND I STILL THINK THE NATIONALS HAVE THE BEST STARTING ROTATION IN THE MAJORS).
The Dodgers will formally announce Greinke today at 1:30 PT. He will wear #21. Ryu will wear #99.
