Oh (elbow) agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday with the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization on a deal worth approximately $490,000, Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports. On the heels of a four-season stint in MLB, Oh will return overseas after the Rockies released him July 28. He'll miss the remainder of the KBO season while recovering from elbow surgery, but Oh is expected to re-sign with the Lions over the winter and return to action at some point in May. While he's on the mend, Oh will be able to serve a 72-game suspension he received for a prior gambling-related conviction in Korea. Oh turned 37 years old in July and seems unlikely to resurface in North America at this stage of his career.
Oh (elbow) was officially released by Colorado on Sunday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Oh was designated for assignment Tuesday and is out for the season due to right elbow surgery, so it's not a major surprise to see him released as he heads into free agency. The 37-year-old was acquired by the Rockies at the 2018 trade deadline and struggled this season with a 6.72 ERA and 1.91 WHIP across 18.1 innings.
Oh (elbow) was designated for assignment Tuesday by the Rockies. Oh is already headed for season-ending surgery, so the Rockies will clear a spot on the 40-man roster by sending him to waivers. Yonder Alonso is set to have his contract selected in a corresponding move. The 37-year-old right-hander posted a 9.33 ERA and 1.91 WHIP with 16 punchouts over 18.1 frames in 2019.
Oh (abdomen) will undergo surgery on his right elbow to remove loose particles and will miss the remainder of the 2019 season, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Oh has been on the injured list since June 10 with a left abdominal strain but will now be sidelined for several months due to the elbow surgery. The 37-year-old will finish the season with a 9.33 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 21 appearances, and he'll enter the 2020 season with some uncertainty due to his age, the injuries and the fact he'll be a free agent.
Oh (abdomen) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Friday at Coors Field, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Oh threw a bullpen session earlier in the week with no issues, clearing the way for him to face hitters for the first time since landing on the shelf earlier in June. The Rockies will wait until after Friday's live BP session before determining the next step in his recovery, but Oh appears to be closing in on a rehab assignment.
