Yang Hyun-jong, bullpen pitcher, MLB.com with opening roster
MLB.com predicted that Yang Hyun-jong (33, Texas Rangers) will be included in the opening roster. However, it was classified as a bullpen pitcher, not a starting pitcher 토토사이트
“The situation has changed a lot from last year,” MLB.com said on the 22nd (Korean time) as it predicted Texas’ opening roaster. “We will concentrate on fostering young players,” he said, adding Yang’s name among the 13 pitchers.
Yang Hyun-jong signed a split contract with Texas on the 13th and achieved his dream of entering overseas markets. Major League roster was not guaranteed, but MLB.com said it would be able to get a spot with “skill.”
Yang Hyun-jong, who will participate in the spring camp as an invited player, will have to compete fiercely for survival. If he enters the Major League, he will receive 1.3 million dollars, and there is an incentive of 550,000 dollars depending on his performance.
Yang Hyun-jong played 14 seasons in the KBO league and played a total of 1940 innings. “Chulwan, who pitched more than 170 innings for the seventh consecutive year since 2014, also praised Yang Hyun-jong as an inningter.”
However, he decided that he would be behind in the starting pitcher competition. MLB.com expects Texas to form a starting lineup of five, including Kyle Gibson, Gohei Arihara, Mike Poltinho Beach, Dane Dunning and Colby Allard.
The bullpen included Yang Hyun-jong, Jose Leclerc, Jonathan Hernandez, Joel Rodriguez, Brett Martin, Jordan Liles, Wes Benjamin and Josh Svotz.
Meanwhile, Yang Hyun-jong, who left the country on the 20th, will go through the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) procedure and join the training from the 24th.
