Get ready to make a new entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. Mere days after learning of Yu Darvish's apparent time-traveling ability, it seems the MLB has yet another pitcher sent from the future in its midst.

Well, actually Hyun-Jin Ryu's methods aren't clear, but one hilarious mistake has rendered him the oldest living man on planet earth.

More specifically, Ryu was born in the year 1013, according to the Jumbotron at the Great American Ball Park. It also seems Ryu has picked up a trick or two in his more than 1,000 years on earth, as he held the Cincinnati Reds scoreless through seven innings pitched Sunday afternoon.

We should reiterate that this was likely just a typo from someone in the Reds' organization. However, considering Ryu has posted a 1.52 ERA through his nine starts thus far, we shouldn't rule anything out.

In other words, Ryu can expect a call from Tom Brady soon, as he'll surely want to know how to achieve peak performance well into your age-1,006 season.
