Korean big leaguer Park Hyo-joon (27) will eventually face the season in the American professional baseball minor league.
The Atlanta Braves team announced on the 6th (Korean time), “Park Hyo-joon has moved to the Gwinnett Stripers, a Triple-A team under the club.”
Park Hyo-joon, who started the season in the big leagues as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates last year, suffered an ordeal after the season. 스포츠토토
He was released from Pittsburgh and traded to the Boston Red Sox on November 24.
In Boston, he became an outcast in 20 days, and set up a nest in Atlanta in 3 days.
However, even Atlanta placed Hyo-Jun Park on standby in order to add outfielder Ellie White to their 40-man roster on December 29th.
Park Hyo-joon was released from the team three times after the season ended.
Because of his unstable position, the selection of the Korean baseball team for the World Baseball Classic (WBC), which he secretly expected, was also canceled.
Lee Kang-chul, coach of the Korean national baseball team, said on the 4th, “Park Hyo-jun does not currently belong to a team, so it is unclear. I decided that it would be better to use a domestic player.”
Park Hyo-jun, who was evaluated as the best infielder in high school during Yatap High School, joined the New York Yankees in 2015.
After enduring a minor league life for a long time, he made his dream big league debut wearing a Yankees uniform in 2021.
In July 2021, he was traded to Pittsburgh and showed potential with a batting average of 0.197, 3 home runs and 14 RBIs in 44 games.
In 2022, he only played 23 games, hitting 0.216 with two homers and six RBIs.
