“I’m back from strong performance in Korea.” Former Doosan Rojas and Yankees sign minor league contract with ‘Big League re-challenge’

Jose Rojas (31), a foreign hitter who played for the Doosan Bears, will take on the big league challenge.

“The Yankees signed a minor league contract with utility player Rojas,” MLB.com John Morosi said on Wednesday. The contract includes an invitation to the spring camp.

According to the New York Post Joel Sherman, if you are promoted to the Major League, you will receive $750,000 (about 1 billion won), and if you stay in the Minor League, you will receive $180,000 (about 240 million won) a year.헤라카지노도메인

Rojas, who made his professional debut after being nominated for the Los Angeles Angels in the 2016 Rookie Draft, took the big league stage in 2021. He recorded a batting average of 0.188 with six homers and an OPS of 0.584 in 83 games in two seasons. In the minor leagues, he recorded a batting average of 0.286 with 92 homers and an OPS of 0.850 in 535 games in six seasons.

Starting in the 2023 season, Doosan will play in Korea. It signed a million-dollar contract with Doosan. However, after the end of the season, Doosan did not renew contract with Rojas but signed contract with Henry Ramos, who played for KT Wiz.

MLBTR said, “31-year-old Rojas will return to the U.S. after showing strong performance in Korea. He signed a contract with the Doosan Bears in the KBO League for the 2023 season, and he hit 19 home runs while walking 11.9 percent of 464 times at bat in 122 games, and struck out 14.7 percent of them. He recorded a batting average of 0.253 on-base percentage of 0.474, indicating that he was 26 percent better than the league’s average hitter with 126 wRC+.”

Rojas only played as an outfielder for Doosan, but can also play in the infield. He has played all infield positions except shortstop in the Major League.

MLBTR introduced that “Lohas looks good not only in the outfield corner but also in the three infield positions,” and added, “The Yankees suffered from injury in 2023. They will enter the season with still injured people. Rojas will not be able to find a spot in the outfield corner where Aaron Judge, Juan Soto, and Alex Verdugo are located. Anthony Rizzo and DJ LeMayhew will be in the infield, both of whom had health problems last year and are in their mid-30s. Definitely need Debs. The Yankees have signed Kevin Smith and Josh VanMeter to minor league deals in recent weeks, and Rojas has also been added. If Rojas gets a call-up anytime, he has one year left.”
