By Oh Sang-jin Reporter= Former KT Wiz pitcher Bo Schuler, 29, who was released during the season due to his poor performance in the KBO, has found employment again.
The Pittsburgh Pirates signed Schuler to a minor league contract on Tuesday (KST), according to MLBTradeRumors.com, which covers player transfer news.
Schuler was selected by Pittsburgh in the 10th round (298th overall) of the 2017 First-Year Player Draft. After making his major league debut with Pittsburgh in 2022, Schuler was traded to the Baltimore Orioles during the season and failed to impress in the big leagues. In his major league career, he went 0-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 10 games and 22 1/3 innings pitched in 2022, and in five seasons in the minors, he went 25-28 with a 4.12 ERA in 133 games (42 starts) and 373 1/3 innings pitched.바카라
After the 2022 season, Schuler signed a $740,000 contract with KT to try his hand in the KBO, but struggled to a 1-7 record with a 5.62 ERA in nine games and 49⅔ innings pitched. KT eventually released Schuler on Sept. 9 and reacquired William Cuevas, 33, who was a key part of the team’s 2021 championship run.
Reunited with his hometown team, the Pirates, Schuler is expected to play for Pittsburgh’s Double-A affiliate, the Altoona Curve, as he attempts to return to the major leagues, according to MLBTrader.com.
