Rangers bid on Korean pitcher
The Rangers have submitted a bid on pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, a left-hander from South Korea. The process is similar to what the Rangers went through with Yu Darvish last winter. Ryu’s team, the Hanwha Eagles, have four business days to accept the winning bid. If so, the team that wins the bid has 30 days to work out an agreement with his agent Scott Boras. This past season, Ryu was 9-9 with a 2.66 ERA, striking out 210 over 182 2/3 innings.
