Korea’s NC Dinos Sign Aaron Altherr, Mike Wright
The NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization have marked outfielder Aaron Altherr and right-hander Mike Wright, Naver Sports reports (cap tip to Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net). The two players will win a $800K compensation and a marking reward of $200K. Altherr and Wright will make up two of the Dinos’ three assigned remote players in 2020.
The 28- year-old Altherr will attempt to remake his stock abroad after a ruthless 2019 partitioned among the Phillies, Giants and Mets. Altherr amassed a consolidated 66 plate appearances in those stops and batted a hopeless .082/.136/.164 with one grand slam. It was the subsequent straight harsh year at the significant class level for Altherr, a ninth-round pick of the Phillies in 2009 who resembled a potential structure hinder for the group only several years prior. In 2017, his best season in the majors, Altherr sliced a solid .272/.340/.516 with 19 homers in 412 outings to the plate.
Wright, in the mean time, hasn’t had a lot of progress at the game’s most elevated level since entering the masters as a third-rounder of the Orioles in 2011. The 29- year-old has just pitched to a 6.00 ERA/5.22 FIP with 7.26 K/9 and 3.45 BB/9 in 258 MLB innings, including 29 1/3 casings between the O’s and Mariners in 2019. In any case, Wright has performed well in Triple-A ball, where he has posted a 3.76 ERA and logged 6.9 K/9 against 2.45 BB/9 crosswise over 447 2/3 innings.
