Reporter Kwon Hyeok-joon = Park Hyo-joon (27), who changed teams several times this offseason, finally started the new season in the minor leagues.

The Atlanta Braves announced on the 6th (Korean time) that they were sending Park Hyo-joon to their Triple-A team, the Gwinnett Strippers. 안전놀이터

Earlier, on the 29th of last month, Atlanta transferred Park Hyo-joon (DFA) to secure a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Ellie White.

Park Hyo-joon couldn’t find a new team for a week and eventually had to accept going to the minor leagues.

After graduating from Yatap High School, Park Hyo-joon moved to the United States in 2014, signing a contract with the New York Yankees for $1.16 million. After that, he took the minor league course calmly and realized his dream of becoming a big leaguer with the Yankees in July of last year.

He was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates after only one at-bat per game, and has been given more opportunities since. He recorded 0.195, 3 homers and 14 RBIs in 45 games last year and was included in the opening roster this season.

However, he failed to earn the team’s trust, including being demoted to the minor leagues on four occasions. He appeared in only 23 games, fewer than his last year, and failed to make much of an impression with 2 home runs and 6 RBIs for a .216 batting average.

After the season, Pittsburgh received a DFA, and after that, he made a new nest with the Boston Red Sox through a trade with Minor Lobo, a minor league pitcher. However, Boston also acquired pitcher Kenley Jansen and DFA for Park Hyo-joon, and then moved to Atlanta.

Park Hyo-joon, who failed to secure a spot on the 40-man roster in Atlanta, eventually accepted a minor league contract after his third DFA.
