‘It’s starting again!’ MLBTR “Park Hyo-joon is a lukewarm hit, but if he averages it, he will be a valuable contributor”

Park Hyo-jun ended up starting again in the minor leagues.

The Atlanta Braves announced on the 6th (Korean time) that they transferred Park Hyo-joon to their Triple-A team, the Gwinnett Strippers.

When Atlanta acquired outfielder Ellie White on December 29 last year, Hyo-jun Park was designated for transfer (DFA) to secure a spot on the 40-man roster.

After a week, when no team wanted Park Hyo-jun, he was sent to the minor leagues instead of being released.

Park Hyo-joon, who moved to the United States after signing a contract with the New York Yankees for $1.16 million in July 2014, ate ‘bread soaked in tears’ in the minor leagues for 7 years.

He made his big league debut for the Yankees on July 17, 2021, finally becoming a major leaguer. However, he digested only one at-bat and went back down to the minor leagues.

Traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates at the end of July 2021, he played 44 games in the big leagues, hitting 0.197 with 3 homers and 14 RBIs.

Park Hyo-joon, who was also listed on the roster for the opening season of the 2022 season, failed to properly seize the opportunity to play and went back and forth between the big and minor leagues throughout the season. He didn’t even have good grades 토토. In 23 games he played, he had a batting average of just .216 (11-for-51) with two homers and six RBIs.

Eventually, when the season ended, Pittsburgh designated Park Hyo-joon for transfer. The Boston Red Sox took him, but transferred Park Hyo-jun again when they acquired closer Kenley Jansen.

As a result, Atlanta took him to the trade, but he was not spared the assignment.

However, there is no need to be disappointed. You can go from the minor leagues to the big leagues.

It’s not easy, but he can play in every position except first base and has speed, so he can be called up to the big leagues at any time if necessary.

MLBTR said, “Despite a lukewarm offense over the past season and a half, Hyo-Jun Park continues to garner attention for his defensive versatility and speed. Diagnosed.
