LOS ANGELES — Flush with cash after the team’s sale this year, the Los Angeles Dodgers are busy spending it on starting pitching.

The team introduced left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin of South Korea, making him the first player to go directly from the Korean league to the major leagues.

The Dodgers then finalized a $147 million, six-year deal with free agent right-hander Zack Greinke later in the day.

The deals for Greinke and Ryu give the Dodgers eight starting pitchers under contract for next season, joining 2011 NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Josh Beckett, Ted Lilly, Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang.
