Darin Ruff (37), who played for the Samsung Lions in the KBO League, returned to the San Francisco Giants after 8 months.
According to ESPN’s report on the 9th (Korean time), San Francisco announced that it had signed a minor league contract with Ruff.
Ruff, who played as a big leaguer for the Philadelphia Phillies from 2012 to 2016, signed a contract with Samsung and stepped on the KBO League stage in 2017.먹튀검증
Ruff, who played for Samsung from 2017 to 2019, played a total of 404 games over three seasons, leaving a batting average of 0.313 with 86 home runs and 350 RBIs.
After finishing the 2019 season, Ruff, who chose to try again in the major leagues, signed a minor league contract with San Francisco in January 2020, and succeeded in returning to the big leagues that year.
Ruff enjoyed his prime after his return to the big leagues. He played 40 games in 2020, a shortened season of 60 games per team in the aftermath of Corona 19, and played an active role with a batting average of 0.276, 5 homers and 18 RBIs. In 2021, he had a batting average of .271 with 16 homers and 43 RBIs.
Ruff, who was traded to the New York Mets in August of last year, suffered sluggishness last season, with a batting average of 0.204, and was pushed out of the competition in this year’s spring camp.
Ruff, who was designated for assignment (DFA) by the Mets at the end of last month, was eventually released because he could not find a new team, but he seeks a comeback by building a new nest in San Francisco.
