At the last minute, the Dodgers have agreed to terms with South Korean left-handed pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin, first reported by Mike Petriello. The Dodgers won the negotiating rights to the 25 year old southpaw last month and spent the entirety of their allotted window trading offers with Ryu's agent, Scott Boras. Jon Heyman reports that the contract spans 6 years, is worth $36 million (with up to $1 million a year in performance bonuses) and includes an opt-out option after the fifth year.
Ryu spent 7 seasons in the Korean Baseball League, pitching for the Hanwha Eagles. He was named Rookie of the Year and league MVP in 2006, won 5 strikeout titles, 2 ERA titles and made the All Star team every season. Over his career, he posted a 2.80 ERA in 190 games.
