LHP Ryu gives Blue Jays ace to pair with talented young core

TORONTO (AP) — Hyun-Jin Ryu is the ace the Toronto Blue Jays needed to pair with a lineup flush with “baseball royalty.”

That’s the view agent Scott Boras has of the four-year, $80 million deal that brought the Korean left-hander north of the border.

Ryu agreed to join the Jays last weekend, then flew in from Korea for an introductory news conference Friday, greeting a live television audience with a wide smile and a few words in each of his new home country’s official languages.

“Hello, Canada,” Ryu said. “Bonjour. I’m happy to be here and I’m going to make the Toronto Blue Jays proud.”

Note to self: Check in in a few years’ time, so see how things developed for this team.
