Tyson Ross, who was well known to domestic fans as a Korean major leaguer, joins the Los Angeles Dodgers front desk.

“The Athletic” 메이저사이트Fabian Ardaya said on the 19th (Korean time), “The Dodgers hired Ross from the big leagues as a special assistant to the general manager. He will be in charge of player development.”

Ross was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 2008 draft. He made his big league debut in 2010 and stayed there for 10 years, going through five teams. His career record was 44 wins, 70 losses, 4.04 ERA, 3 holds, 1 save and 816 strikeouts.

His best season was 2014 with the San Diego Padres, where he recorded 13 wins, 14 wins, an ERA of 2.81 and 195 strikeouts, and was also selected as an All-Star.

Ross, whose grandmother is Korean, once suggested that he should be called up for the Korean team in the World Baseball Classic. But it didn’t really work out.

2019 was the last time Ross appeared in the major leagues. He signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers for the 2021 season, but never stepped on the big league stage, and little news has been heard since.

However, it seems that he has virtually announced his retirement as he will serve as a special assistant to the general manager on this day. He took on a new role at the front desk and turned the next page in his career.

Meanwhile, his younger brother Joe Ross is still continuing his career, signing a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants and re-challenging the big leagues.
