Toronto Blue Jays
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Coming off a season in which Ryu made only 15 starts but pitched to a 1.97 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, the prudent play was drafting Ryu with an injury discount and having a replacement ready. The ploy paid off in spades as Ryu was essentially his own replacement, repeating the low WHIP with a slightly-higher 2.32 ERA in 29 starts. For much of the year, Ryu was on pace for another season below 2.00, but a four-game stretch with a 9.95 mark spoiled those plans. Spin rate is all the rage, but Ryu's success comes from lack of spin, adding extra action to his changeup while giving a different look to his fastball. He exhibits pinpoint control and command with all his pitches, walking just 24 in 182.2 innings while allowing a stingy 17 homers. Ryu parlayed a rare healthy season into a four-year, $80 million deal with Toronto. His stuff will play in any park, but the move to the AL East is far from ideal. Read Past Outlooks
