I follow Korean baseball and Dumatrait signed with Korean baseball team LG Twins this May and got ROCKED pretty bad. 4-6, 8.22 ERA and only 29k’s in 61.1IP. ouch. Good for him to get a minor league contract here

The Royals resigning Mendoza is a bit of a head scratcher.

I really hope Larish establishes himself in Philly at some position. The guys got so much power but he just cant make consistent contact
