Alexi Ogando signs with a Korean team

5 Comments

Pitcher Alexi Ogando has signed with the Hanwha Eagles in the Korean Baseball Organization. Ogando, 33, posted a 3.94 ERA and 29/23 K/BB ratio over 32 innings for the Atlanta Braves last season.

Ogando began his career with a bang, posting a 139 ERA+ with the Rangers between 2010-13. But he suffered a sprained UCL in his right elbow in June of 2014, ending his season. He hasn’t been the same since, working in Boston and Atlanta quite unevenly.

Here’s hoping that Ogando can get his once promising career back on track in the KBO or, at the very least, make a little bank in the meantime.
