Sadowski to Korea

» 25 December 2009 » In kbo »

Ryan Sadowski has found his way to Asia. The former SF Giant has signed a deal to pitch for the Lotte Giants in 2010.

You might recall that the Yokohama BayStars tried to get Sadowski during the 2009 season, but San Francisco decided they could use him on the big league roster and held on to his contract. Sadowski had a couple of good games at the MLB level before Jonathan Sanchez returned from bullpen exile to throw a no-hitter. Sadowski had signed with Houston earlier in the offseason, but I guess the Astros let him out of his contract.

Best of luck to Ryan in Korea!

    How much money would a player like him command in Korea?

    When I saw the address I assumed it was in Korean! Didn’t mean to waste your time.
