Rangers sign former Cardinals closer Seung-hwan Oh

3 Comments

The Texas Rangers have signed free agent reliever Seung-hwan Oh, late of the St. Louis Cardinals. The deal is pending a physical and terms are not yet known.

Oh, 35, has pitched two seasons in the United States, both with the Cardinals. He went in and out of the Cardinals’ closer’s job in each of the past two years, saving 39 games. There was a marked decline in his performance between 2016 and 2017, though, as he posted a 4.10 ERA in 62 appearance while giving up 10 homers in 59.1 innings. He allowed only five dingers in 79.2 innings the season before while putting up a 1.92 ERA.

Was 2016 a fluke, or will the Rangers be getting a good reliever, likely on the cheap? We’ll find out in 2018.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
