According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Dodgers and South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-Jin have come to a contract agreement. Terms of the agreement is not known as of yet.

The Dodgers won exclusive negotiating rights with the pitcher by posting a bid north of $25 million last month to the Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Baseball Organization. The two sides had 30 days to reach a contract agreement.

Ryu, who is represented by Scott Boras, was most likely headed to Japan if a contract was not reached. Meanwhile no word if the Dodgers will add Anibal Sanchez and/or Kyle Lohse.
