This time it’s the Atlanta Braves.

Infielder Park Hyo-joon (26) has found a new nest. The Boston Red Sox officially announced on the 17th (Korean time) that they would trade Hyo-Jun Park to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for cash or a later designated player. This is the second trade already this offseason. Park Hyo-joon was transferred to Boston in November after being removed from the 40-man list after being transferred from the Pittsburgh Pirates. However, after right-hander Kenley Jansen’s two-year contract was made official, Boston reassigned Park Hyo-joon to make room for him.

A situation in need of a new team. Atlanta, in need of infield reinforcement, reached out. highly evaluated Park Hyo-joon’s ability to play a variety of positions, although he did not add much to the team in terms of offensive power. Of course, there’s no guarantee that he’ll start next season in Atlanta. He has a lot of offseason left, so he’s likely to move again. Even if he stays, he has to prove his competitiveness himself. Aire Adriansa (33), who recently signed a minor league contract, is attracting attention as a backup infielder for next season. 메이저놀이터
