Reporter Kim Joo-hee = Park Hyo-joon (26) was placed on standby for release again three weeks after he set up a new nest with the Boston Red Sox.
According to Mass Live on the 14th (Korean time), Boston has designated for assignment (DFA) of Park Hyo-jun while preparing a new spot on the 40-man roster for newly acquired closer Kenley Jansen.
Park Hyo-joon, who has been excluded from the 40-man roster, can change teams if a club wants to sign him within a week. Otherwise, he becomes a free agent (FA) or is transferred to a minor league affiliated with Boston.
It is waiting for the second release only this winter.
On the 23rd of last month, Park Hyo-joon was also on standby for release from the Pittsburgh Pirates, and joined Boston the next day through a trade.
However, less than a month later, the red light came on to remain in the major leagues again.
Park Hyo-joon, a native of Yatap High School, signed a contract with the New York Yankees in 2014 for 1.16 million dollars, the highest amount for a Korean player at the time, and went on to challenge the United States. 메이저사이트
After spending a long time in the minor leagues, he finally entered the big leagues on July 17 last year.
Hyo-jun Park, who later moved to Pittsburgh through a trade, opened the 2022 season in the big leagues, but soon went back to the minor leagues.
He continued to bounce back and forth between the big leagues and the minor leagues, where he couldn’t find a place, and he ended up looking for a new job this winter.
In the 2022 season, he recorded a batting average of 0.216 (11 hits in 51 bats), 2 homers and 6 RBIs in 23 games.
