Darin Ruff, from the KBO League’s RBI King’, is starting anew. Signing a contract with the Milwaukee Brewers and aiming for a revival.
Milwaukee announced on the 16th (Korean time) that it had signed a one-year contract with Ruff.
Previously, Ruff transferred from the San Francisco Giants to the New York Mets through a trade in August of last year. But the Mets released the rough last April.
Afterwards, Ruff immediately signed with San Francisco, but was recently transferred. Afterwards, Ruff obtained FA status through a waiver.
Rough, which his team lost, seeks a comeback by signing a one-year contract with Milwaukee.
Ruff, who was nominated by the Philadelphia Phillies with the 617th overall pick in the 20th round of the 2009 rookie draft, debuted in the big leagues in 2012 and played in the Philadelphia uniform until the 2016 season, playing in 286 games for five seasons with 177 hits, 35 homers, batting average of 0.240 OPS, 0.747. recorded
After that, he turned his eyes to the KBO League. He signed a contract with the Samsung Lions and played on the Korean stage. Ruff played in 134 games in the 2017 season, hit 31 homers, 124 RBIs, 90 points, and a batting average of 0.315, and won the RBI title. The following year, he had a ‘career-high’ season with 33 home runs, 125 RBIs, 97 runs batted in and a batting average of 0.330 in 137 games. And he played in 133 games in 2019 with a batting average of 0.292, 22 homers and 101 RBIs, and then returned to the United States.먹튀검증
After returning to the major leagues, the impact was good. In the first year of the shortened season, Ruff played an active role in 40 games with a batting average of 0.276, 5 homers, 18 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.887 in the first year of the shortened season, becoming the main character of the ‘reverse export myth’. He showed off his excellent batting ability and took the starting position.
However, the problem was the 2022 season. Ruff, who succeeded in extending the contract ahead of the season, hit 11 home runs, but showed a noticeable drop in sophistication with a batting average of 0.215. Injuries came after that. Ruff, who was put on the injured list (IL) due to a wrist injury, went through steady rehabilitation and played 5 games for the Triple-A Sacramento Rivercats, becoming a DFA while waiting for a call from the big leagues.
This time, he will wear his fourth major league uniform under a contract with Milwaukee.
