Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = Danny Duffy, who went to the Los Angeles Dodgers through a trade, but couldn’t play a single game, found a new team.
The Texas Rangers said on their official website on the 28th (Korean time), “The club signed a minor league contract with left-handed pitcher Duffy. Also, he got an invitation to the spring camp.”
Duffy made his debut in a Kansas City Royals uniform from 2011. After that, he played for only one team until the 2021 season, and in 2015 he also experienced a World Series victory.
He was traded to the Dodgers after posting a career record of 68-68 with a 3.95 ERA and 1,048 strikeouts. However, the season ended without him playing a single game due to a left arm injury.
But the Dodgers made the surprising choice of signing Duffy to a $3 million contract last year and seemed to be coming back. That included a $7 million option this season. This contract became the Dodgers’ mistake. Duffy never made it to the big leagues, and only appeared in seven minor league games.
The Dodgers refused to exercise the option, and that’s how the relationship with the Dodgers ended. And with Texas reaching out to him on this day, he was able to start fresh. 안전놀이터
Texas recently judged that Duffy had maintained a fresh shoulder by not throwing the ball, and his minor league contract seemed to bring him without hesitation.
Meanwhile, Texas also signed minor contracts with long-time major league veterans such as Clint Frazier, Travis Yankowski, Reyes Moronta, and Ian Kennedy.
