Dan Straily: Returns to KBO
The Diamondbacks granted Straily his release from his minor-league deal Monday, allowing him to sign a one-year, $400,000 contract with the Lotte Giants of the Korea Baseball Organization, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.
After failing to win a spot on the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster, Straily had toiled all season at Triple-A Reno, with whom he produced a 6.35 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 53:30 K:BB in 62.1 innings. Since a call-up to the majors wasn't imminent, Straily will instead head to Korea for the second time in his career, and he'll be well-compensated for the remaining three months of the season. The 33-year-old previously led the KBO circuit in strikeouts while pitching for the Giants in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Dan Straily: Won't make Opening Day roster
Straily was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.
Straily joined the Diamondbacks as a non-roster invitee in February following a successful two-year stint in Korea, but he failed to make his case for a roster spot this spring. His 8.68 ERA in 9.1 Cactus League innings was quite poor, though it did at least come with 12 strikeouts against just three walks. He'll head to the minors to try to prove himself worthy of his first major-league opportunity since 2019.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Dan Straily: Make auspicious debut
Straily allowed seven runs on nine hits (two home runs) while striking out three over three innings in Saturday's spring game against the Angels.
Straily is bidding to be the Diamondbacks' fifth starter, but his debut in an Arizona uniform did not go well. "I came in with the mind-set that I'm going to fill up the strike zone - and as (pitching coach) Brent (Strom) pointed out to me, I did that a little too well," Straily told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "A lot of first-pitch hits, a lot of first-pitch hacking." Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Straily has pitched better on the backfields, but he'll need to make adjustments in terms of pitch mix.... See More ... See Less
