Darin Ruff (37), who was the 2017 KBO League RBI leader, who was selected as a successful U-turn example from the KBO League to the major leagues, eventually heard the news of the shocking release. That would have been unimaginable even six months ago. The local media looked back at the unfortunate end of the relationship between Ruff and the New York Mets.
The Mets officially announced on the 28th (Korean time) 바카라that they had designated Ruff as a transfer player (DFA). Ruff joined the Mets with high expectations ahead of the trade deadline last year, but his performance plummeted after the transfer. In this spring training, he could not show proper performance due to a wrist injury and sluggishness.
Still, there were still expectations for him as a left-handed opponent specialist.

I chose the speed of Locastro,’ he said overall.
The ‘New York Post’ said, ‘The Mets hoped that Ruff would become a designated hitter against lefties, but he was sluggish last year. He went out in 74 at-bats for the Mets and left a disastrous result of a batting average of 0.152 without a home run.
The media lamented that because Ruff was taking the position, Brett Bartina and Mark Vientos, the prospects fans wanted to see, had to go down to Triple A, saying, ‘I became the
