Baseball general chiefs: it’s your inaction that has driven us to this. Try not to point the finger at me. Sign a few people as of now, will ya? Anyway, [deep breath], previous Baltimore Orioles pitcher Tyler Wilson has marked a one-year, $800,000 contract with the LG Twins of the Korea Baseball Organization.
The Orioles’ tenth round pick from 2011 was DFA’d back in September and did not seem, by all accounts, to be in the Orioles or any other individual’s designs. He’s 28 and has posted a 5.02 ERA and some truly low strikeout rates over parts of three seasons with Baltimore. He got a reasonably broad tryout as a major class starter in 2016 and set up a 5.27 ERA. A year ago he was shelled in nine major class recreations and didn’t improve in the pivot down in Norfolk.
That is unpleasant, yet getting $800,000 to go carry out your specialty in Korea is a quite nice finding, everything considered. On the off chance that he has several great seasons for the LG Twins, he’ll get a crisp look by somebody in the bigs or in Japan, I figure.
