ERA 9.20 will be released from Doosan’s Frankoff Arizona
Seth Frankoff, an 18-win pitcher in the KBO League, was released without crossing the Major League wall.
Major League Baseball Trade Rumors (MLTR), a U.S. media outlet that mainly reports major league player transfers and transfers, reported on the 9th (Korea Standard Time) that the Arizona Diamondbacks released Frankoff. Frankoff was in the Arizona 40-man roster, a release to secure the roster.
Frankoff played in the KBO League as a member of the Doosan Bears in 2018 and 2019. He started in 28 games in 2018 and pitched 149 2이3 innings, leading Doosan to the regular season title with 18 wins, 3 losses and a 3.74 ERA. In 2019, he failed to play many games due to injury, but he pitched 117 2 3 innings in 22 games and did his part with 9 wins, 8 losses and a 3.61 ERA. He also started the 2019 Kiwoom Heroes and the Korean Series and won with six scoreless innings, contributing greatly to Doosan’s integrated victory.
Frankoff sought to enter the Major League again after 2019. In 2020, he signed a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres that included an invitation to spring camp, but failed to enter the Major League. Since then, he has been released as a free agent (FA) in July, signed a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners in August, and succeeded in returning to the Major League. However, he pitched in two games and pitched two 2이 innings, sluggish with a 16.88 ERA without winning or losing.
Frankoff, who is back on the market, signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks that included an invitation to spring camp. Frankoff was promoted to the Major League in May and received three chances to start. He was sluggish with two runs in four 2,3 innings against the Washington Nationals on May 16, five runs in four innings against the Colorado Rockies, and seven runs in five innings against the St. Louis Cardinals. After throwing one inning into the bullpen, he was on the injured list due to a right arm injury.
He returned to the roster in August after going through the injured list on the 60th and waited for a major league call-up in the minor leagues. But the opportunity did not come. Arizona decided to release and was excluded from the 40-man roster. Frankoff’s major league performance this year is two losses and a 9.20 ERA.
