    • Byungho Park: Signs deal in KBO
      By RotoWire Staff

      Park signed a $1.4 million deal with the Nexen Heroes in Korea, Jeeho Yoo of Yonhap News reports. Park spent just two years with the Twins before deciding to re-join his old club in Korea. He played in Triple-A Rochester during the 2017 season, batting .253 with 14 home runs and 60 RBI in 419 at-bats. Park will likely enjoy greater success in Korea, having smashed 52 and 53 home runs in the two previous years he played for Nexen.

    • Park will stay in Minnesota to work out in the offseason after a disappointing season that saw him hit just .253 with 14 home runs and a .723 OPS at Triple-A, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Park looked set to begin the season as Minnesota's DH after hitting six home runs with a 1.159 OPS in spring training. He failed to make the roster and was sent to Triple-A in a decision that was controversial at the time but looks like the right call given his struggles in the minors. With two years left on a four-year, $12 million deal it would seem likely that the Twins would try to trade him or that he would ask for a buyout and return to South Korea. However, this report would appear to indicate Park is set to remain in the U.S.

    • Twins' Byungho Park: Dealing with groin strain
      By RotoWire Staff

      Park was removed from Sunday's game with Triple-A Rochester with a groin strain, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Park was out the lineup for Monday's minor-league season finale, so he'll finish the year at Rochester with a .253/.308/.415 line in 111 games.

    • Twins' Byungho Park: Experimenting in left field
      By RotoWire Staff

      Park made his first career start in left field for Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. This is apparently the first time he has played in the outfield since he was nine years old, so it seems like a long shot that he would prove competent enough out there on defense to justify sticking there long term. Most importantly, Park is a 31-year-old who has been a league-average hitter (100 wRC+) with 10 home runs and a 30.1 percent strikeout rate at Triple-A, so he is simply not hitting enough to realistically profile at any corner spot.

    • Twins' Byungho Park: Struggling at Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Park is hitting just .226 with a .632 OPS and one home run in 13 games at Triple-A Rochester. He's just 6-for-37 with no walks in May. Park was a star in major-league spring training with six home runs and a 1.159 OPS, but he didn't make the big-league roster. He then missed most of the first month of the season with a hamstring injury. He's struggled since his return and a trip back to the majors doesn't look like it's on the horizon.
