    Ryu Hyun-jin of the Toronto Blue Jays has joined the club's spring training camp in Dunedin, Florida.

    Training for pitchers and catchers began on Friday but Ryu arrived in Dunedin on Feb. 9 to get warmed up early on.

    Ryu signed a four-year contract worth US$80 million with the Blue Jays -- the biggest deal ever for a Korean pitcher -- in December last year after playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers for seven years.

    Meanwhile, Kim Kwang-hyun made the front page of the St. Louis Cardinals' website on Feb. 11 in an article headlined, "Cards lefty Kim comes out firing in first session."

    Kim threw more than 50 pitches, whereas most starters are asked to throw 30 to 40 in their first spring outing.

    Also in December last year, Kim signed a two-year contract worth US$8 million with the Cardinals, finally realizing his lifelong dream of playing in the big league.
