“Ryu Hyun-jin over Stroman, Toronto’s extra business.”

Ryu Hyun-jin

If is a futile assumption, it is always an interesting factor. If the Toronto Blue Jays had not traded “all-star pitcher” Marcus Stroman (30, New York Mets) in July 2019, where would Ryu Hyun-jin (34) be now?

The Athletic, a U.S. sports media, shed light on the Stroman trade through a corner on the 1st. Stroman, who made his big league debut in Toronto in 2014, was an ace who pitched more than 200 innings for two consecutive years between 2016 and 2017. However, Toronto, which was a rebuilding year with the debut of promising players such as Vladimir Guerrero and Bo Bichet in 2019, handed Stroman over to the Mets on condition of receiving prospective pitchers Simon Woods Richardson and Anthony Kay on the trade deadline in July.

The Athletic said, ‘Two years after that, there are some interesting ripple effects. If Toronto hadn’t traded him, Ryu might not be on the team now. “Toronto, which did not sign an extension with Stroman, recruited an ace as the biggest FA contract in the club’s pitcher history with four years and $80 million.”

“If Toronto had continued to hold Stroman and signed an extension, there would have been no budget for Ryu Hyun-jin. “The major FA recruitment would have ended with Tanner Roark and Travis’ show,” he said. “The pendemic impact in 2020 was unpredictable, but Toronto was better off with Ryu Hyun-jin than Stroman.”

For this reason, The Athletic said, “Stroman missed the entire season due to Corona Opt Out after ruptured left calf muscles last year. If he had made the same decision in Toronto, the team would have made it without the best starter,’ he said, stressing that Ryu Hyun-jin, the first starter, entered the short-season expansion postseason.

“Toronto’s poor performance in 2019 due to the Stroman trade gave Toronto the benefit of naming Austin Martin, the all-round rising star, and Woods Richardson, who had been receiving the Stroman trade card last month.”

Of course it wasn’t a bad trade for Stroman either. Stroman, who accepted the Mets’ qualifying offer of $18.9 million a year without exercising his FA qualification since last season, has pitched 151 innings in 28 games this season with a 9-12 ERA of 2.85, drawing attention as the biggest FA pitcher.

“As a result, it worked out well for both Toronto and Stroman. Toronto has achieved great results with the trade ripple effect, and Stroman will also sign a bigger contract than a team-friendly contract this winter,’ he said.파워볼사이트
