Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Struck out eight in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (4-2) took the loss Saturday at Philadelphia after giving up two runs on six hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out six.

The veteran left-hander was charged with his first loss since July 30, as Toronto's offense managed only two hits for the game. Ryu has a 3.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 68:15 K:BB over 60 innings and lines up for his final start of the regular season Thursday against the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Fans seven in win over Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (4-1) picked up the win Sunday against the Mets, allowing one run on eight hits across six innings. He struck out seven and did not issue a walk.

The Mets scored a run in the first, but that wound up being the only tally they could manage off the left-hander. Ryu earned his fourth win of the year and dropped his ERA to a tidy 3.00. The southpaw has not taken a loss since July 30 and will look to keep it that way when he takes the hill Friday against the Phillies.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Avoids loss in shaky start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu allowed five runs on six hits and two walks over five innings Monday, striking out five in the win over the Yankees. He did not factor in the decision.

Ryu served up three solo homers Monday, including back-to-back blasts by Luke Voit and Aaron Hicks in the first inning. Despite leaving the contest down 5-2, Toronto's offense exploded for 10 runs in the sixth frame to avoid sticking Ryu with his second loss of the season. The 33-year-old southpaw will carry a 3.19 ERA into Sunday's home start against the Mets.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Pitches himself to third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (3-1) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while fanning eight batters across six innings as he got the win Wednesday night over the Marlins.

Ryu had very little room for error Wednesday evening as the Blue Jays offense mustered up just two runs on a fifth-inning Lourdes Gurriel home run. The left-hander has allowed six runs (five earned) over his last six starts and has seemed to have settled in nicely after surrendering eight runs in his first nine innings to open up the 2020 season. Ryu will look to earn his second consecutive win Monday at home against the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Fans seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings in Saturday's win against the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision.

Ryu allowed a fair amount of baserunners Friday, but he was able to keep the Orioles' run production relatively low as he allowed just two runs in the sixth inning. However, he had to settle for a no-decision in Toronto's win in extra innings. Ryu has now posted a 3.16 ERA over 37 innings in his first seven starts of 2020. The southpaw's next turn through the rotation should come on the road Wednesday against the Marlins.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu will start Friday against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The 33-year-old was slated to start Thursday against the Red Sox, but the game was one of the many postponed in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake. Ryu has a 1.23 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB over his past five starts.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Thursday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu's scheduled start Thursday against the Red Sox was postponed, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

The teams elected not to take the field Thursday in protest of the recent police shooting of Jacob Blake. It's unclear when the game will be made up or how the Blue Jays will adjust their starting rotation.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Strong effort wasted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Rays, giving up one run on three hits over five innings. He struck out six without walking a batter.

The southpaw was clinical once again, holding Tampa Bay to just a single through four innings, but Willy Adames and Joey Wendle led off the fifth with back-to-back knocks that put Adames in position to score on Manuel Margot's fielder's choice. Ryu threw 61 of 94 pitches for strikes, and he's given up one run or fewer in four straight outings to lower his ERA to 3.19. He'll look to get back into the win column Thursday, at home against the Red Sox.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Cruises to second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (2-1) picked up the win Monday, allowing one run on four hits over six innings in a 7-2 victory over the Orioles. He struck out three.

The veteran lefty appears to have shaken off his early-season struggles, and Ryu has now turned in back-to-back quality starts while posting a 10:2 K:BB over those 12 innings. He'll try to stay locked in for his next outing Saturday in Tampa Bay.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Delivers strong performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu allowed one run on two hits and two walks over six innings during Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Marlins. He had seven strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

The 33-year-old surrendered a solo homer to Brian Anderson during the second inning, but he otherwise kept the Marlins in check all evening. The Blue Jays scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to put him in line for the win, but the Marlins rallied late to for the 10th inning. Ryu gave up eight runs in nine innings during his first two starts, but in his last two outings he's allowed only one run on three hits across 11 frames. The left-hander will look to keep things rolling early next week in Baltimore.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: First win with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (1-1) allowed one hit and three walks over five scoreless innings in a win over the Braves on Wednesday. He struck out eight.

Ryu had 14 swings and misses on his changeup alone (32 pitches), per Keegan Matheson of MLB.com, and was throwing his cutter with a bit more oomph. His velocity was down in his start last week and the Nationals capitalized for nine hits in 4.1 innings. The lefty lines up to start the Blue Jays' first game at Sahlen Field in Buffalo -- the team's "home opener" -- Aug. 11 against the Marlins.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Another rocky outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (0-1) allowed five earned runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five across 4.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Nationals.

Ryu worked two clean innings to start the game, but then surrendered runs in each of his final three frames to turn in a disappointing start. Four of the nine hits he surrendered went for extra bases, the most harmful of which was a two-run home run by Michael Taylor. While it's only two outings, Ryu has gotten off to a rocky start with the Blue Jays, surrendering eight earned runs across nine innings pitched.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Fans four in Blue Jays debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four over 4.2 innings in Friday's win against the Rays. He didn't factor into the decision.

Ryu tossed three scoreless frames to begin his Opening Day start, but he gave up his first run in a Blue Jays uniform during the fourth inning. He nearly escaped the fifth inning, but Yoshi Tsutsugo hit a two-run homer with two outs, leading to Ryu's removal. The southpaw said after the game that nerves got the better of him since he was making his first start with a new club. In 44 starts during the past two seasons with the Dodgers, the 33-year-old posted a 2.21 ERA and 1.01 WHIP while recording a 21-8 record. Ryu's next start should come at home Thursday against the Nationals.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Starting Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu will be starting Opening Day against the Rays on Friday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

The 33-year-old inked a four-year, $80 million deal with the Blue Jays in December, so it's no surprise he'll be opening Toronto's season on the mound. Ryu threw 80 pitches over five innings during Saturday's intrasquad game, so he shouldn't face any significant workload restrictions early in the campaign.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Workload increasing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu is expected to throw six innings Saturday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Toronto's big free-agent signing seems right on track to handle a regular workload in his Opening Day assignment July 24 against the Rays. Ryu's ability to pitch to weak contact should be a better fit for the Jays, and result in better ratios, now that Vladimir Guerrero has been shifted across the diamond to first base.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Cruises against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu allowed three hits over 4.1 scoreless innings while striking out four in Monday's split-squad game against the Rays.

The veteran southpaw continues to breeze through the spring, posting a 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 6:0 K:BB through 6.1 innings. The Jays are counting on Ryu to be their staff ace this year, and if he can stay healthy -- no sure thing, given that he's reached 130 innings only once in the last four seasons -- he appears more than capable of handling the assignment.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu made his first Grapefruit League appearance Thursday, allowing one run on two hits over two innings while striking out two, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

The veteran southpaw served up a solo homer to unheralded Twins minor-leaguer Zander Wiel but was otherwise pleased with the outing, as he threw 26 of 41 pitches for strikes. "The reason why I focus more on the pitch count and innings is because, as I progress towards the regular season, everything, including the command and also feel for my offspeed pitches, do come back and are ready once the regular season starts," Ryu said after the game through his interpreter Bryan Lee. With a four-year, $80 million contract in his pocket, big things are expected from Ryu this season as he prepares to get the start Opening Day for Toronto.

Hyun-Jin Ryu: Lands deal with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu agreed to a four-year, $80 million deal with the Blue Jays on Sunday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Ryu is a stellar addition to an underdeveloped Blue Jays rotation that lacks a true ace. The southpaw led MLB with a 2.32 ERA in 2019 and his 163 strikeouts were the most he's had in his seven-year professional career. At 32 years old, Ryu isn't necessarily in his prime any longer, but he will provide a nice boost to the front end of the rotation and should be a nice mentor to some of the younger pitchers the organization is trying to develop for the future.

Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Tabbed as Game 3 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu will start Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Nationals on Sunday.

The 32-year-old will take the mound for Game 3 of the NLDS carrying a 2.32 ERA with a 163:24 K:BB through the regular season. Clayton Kershaw will start Game 2 over Ryu, likely to make Kershaw available in relief later in the series if necessary. Ryu struggled in the 2018 postseason, recording a 5.21 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP in 19 innings pitched. The southpaw will look to turn things around in the 2019 playoffs after another dominant regular season.

Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu: K's seven in seven scoreless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (14-5) tossed seven shutout innings while allowing five hits and zero walks with seven strikeouts to earn a victory against the Giants on Saturday.

What a fitting way to end a campaign that could result in Ryu winning the NL Cy Young Award. Dropping his ERA nine points Saturday, Ryu at least clinched the NL ERA title, and over his last 44 starts dating back to the beginning of 2018, Ryu owns a 2.21 ERA. Additionally, he set or tied career bests in wins, WHIP and strikeouts during 2019. Ryu ends this season 14-5 with a 2.32 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 163 strikeouts in 182.2 innings.
