Dodgers rumors: LA may wait to negotiate with Ryu

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Dodgers may wait until the Winter Meetings end to negotiate

The Los Angeles Dodgers may wait until after December's winter meetings have concluded to work out a deal with Korean left-hander Ryu Hyun-Jin, whom they won the negotiating rights to last week, reports Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times:

The Dodgers could wait until after the winter meetings to decide whether to sign South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin, team President Stan Kasten said Monday.

The Dodgers paid $25.7 million for the right to negotiate with Ryu. If they do not sign him by Dec. 10, they get their money back.

The Dodgers have just thirty days from the time their bid was accepted to negotiate with Ryu. With the winter meetings set to conclude on December 6, the club will be left with just four days to come to terms with the young left-hander if they decide to wait.

Kasten told Hernandez that the Dodgers' decision to wait on Ryu comes down to the make-up of next year's rotation. The club may not even make a legitimate run for Ryu if they are able to shore up their rotation before and/or during the winter meetings.
