Ryu Hyun-jin Heads to Toronto Blue Jay's Spring Training Camp

      February 03, 2020 10:41

      Pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin, who recently signed a four-year, US$80-million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, left Korea on Sunday to join the team's spring training in the U.S.

      He will make a stop in Los Angeles, where he has lived for the last seven years playing for the city's Dodgers club, to pack his remaining belongings before moving to the Blue Jays' training camp in Dunedin, Florida.

      Officially, Toronto's pitchers and catchers are due to report on Feb. 13, but Ryu plans to arrive earlier to get warmed up.

      "Things at spring training are pretty much the same as before," Ryu told reporters at Incheon International Airport. "It is important to adjust to the club." He added, "My physical condition is great. It is as good as it was this time last year."

      Ryu finished last season with 14 wins, five losses and a league-best 2.32 ERA, pitching 182 and two-thirds innings over 29 starts.

      He is most likely to start the Blue Jays' home opener against the Boston Red Sox on March 27.

      This year marks Ryu's eighth season in Major League Baseball. "I have become comfortable in MLB after playing for seven years in the league," he said. "I think I can perform well as long as I stay healthy."
