Number of NPB / KBO signings: 12/7/21

The latest information about players signing a contract with Nippon Professional Baseball or Korea Baseball Organization…

  • Earlier this week, the NPB’s Hanshin Tigers announced that the right hand Aaron Wilkerson has been signed. Wilkerson is a three-season Major League veteran, posting a 6.88 ERA in 35 thirds with the Brewers from 2017-19. He hasn’t seen any action in 2020, and after signing a minor league contract with the Dodgers last May, has posted an ERA of 3.86 and some very impressive hit odds (27). .9%) and walk (5.4%) in 112 plays against Triple-A Oklahoma City. However, this performance did not cause Wilkerson to take another look at the Program, and the 32-year-old will explore this new opportunity in Japan. Wilkerson was close to signing a foreign contract last winter, as he had a deal with the Rakuten Monkeys of the Chinese Professional Baseball League before ultimately opting out of the contract.
  • Right-handed people Albert Suarez is making the leap from Japan to Korea, as he signed with the KBO League’s Samsung Lions. The one-year deal will pay Suarez $700k in salary, $100k in signing bonuses, and another $200k available in contract incentives. Suarez’s MLB resume includes 115 2/3 plays with 4.51 tackles with the Giants during the 2016-17 season, but he’s played significantly better since joining the NPB’s Yakult Swallows pre-season 2019. During Suarez’s three seasons with the Swallows, he posted an ERA of 3.00 in 162 plays, culminating in his role in helping the Tokyo-based team win the Japan Series last season. via.
