Dan Straily Agrees To Deal With Korea’s Lotte Giants (MLB Trade Rumors)

Long-time MLB hurler Dan Straily is headed to Korea. He has agreed to a one-year, $1MM deal with the KBO’s Lotte Giants, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter).

Straily, 31, has appeared in each of the past eight MLB campaigns — in six different uniforms. He owns a 4.56 ERA in 803 1/3 career frames at the game’s highest level.

After a nice showing to begin his career with the Athletics, Straily fell off the map somewhat. But he reemerged in 2016, launching a three-season run in which he threw nearly five hundred innings of 4.03 ERA ball.

Unfortunately, that run came to an abrupt end last year with the Orioles. Straily was brought aboard at the last minute to fortify a barren Baltimore pitching staff, but ended up giving up a nearly unfathomable tally of 22 home runs in 47 2/3 innings. He’ll look to get his career back on track with the KBO’s Giants.
