Dodgers News: Source Expects Hyun-Jin Ryu To Accept Qualifying Offer


By the sounds of it, the Hyun-Jin Ryu offseason saga may have a quick resolution. It is believed that Ryu will sign the Dodgers’ qualifying offer set for $17.9 million.

There is a 5 PM ET deadline for this to be done on Monday.’s Mark Feinsand took to twitter with the report.

Still, it’s always interesting to wonder just who the ‘source’ is on something like this. Is it someone in Ryu’s camp – or is it someone in the Dodgers front office? How did they get that word? We will never know what the fly on the wall does.

Ryu is coming off one of the finest seasons of his big league career in 2018. During his age-31 season, the veteran left-hander went 7-3 with a 1.97 ERA in 15 starts for the Dodgers. Ryu struck out 89 hitters in 82.1 innings pitched. He also threw seven shutout innings to open the postseason for the Dodgers in defeating the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.

If Ryu accepts the qualifying offer, he can be penciled in as a likely front four starter in the 2019 starting rotation. We will have more on this storyline as it continues to progress.

    • Mismanagement of the pitching staff put him in a bad spot. Hill should have started at Fenway instead of Ryi, who has significantly better numbers at Dodger Stadium

    • Best years are behind him. Somehow, reliever Madson avoided getting the much-deserved credit for the WS fail as well. Decisions to bring him in proved disastrous.

      • Well one thing most of the MLBN analysts pointed out was what in the world was Kike Hernandez doing batting 3rd in a WS lineup when all during the PS he was so non existent.

  1. To NODH – I’ll take Ryu for another year and Kershaw for as long as he pitches. “Kersh” will prove the fair weather friends wrong.
