There is no place in Triple A… A foreigner from Samsung, to the Mexican League

 Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = Left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery, who played for the Samsung Lions in the KBO League, is heading to Mexico.

‘’ reported on the 7th (Korean time) that “Montgomery has signed a contract with Acederos de Monclavo of the Mexican League.”

Montgomery was highly anticipated when he was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the first round of the 2008 draft. Afterwards, he made his debut for the Seattle Mariners in 2015, and then played for the Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals. 카지노사이트

He recorded a career record of 23 wins, 34 losses, ERA 3.84, 9 holds, 3 saves, and 415 strikeouts, and turned his eyes to Korea in 2021. Montgomery entered the KBO as a replacement for Ben Lively and wore a blue uniform.

However, he did not live up to expectations as he went 2-5 with an ERA of 5.37 in 11 games. In particular, he was criticized for his personality, and he threw a rosin bag with abusive language while protesting against the referee. He was suspended for 20 games, fined, and eventually left the team.

Last year, he signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets, but went 2-10 with a 6.72 ERA in Triple-A. Eventually, he never made it to the big leagues and his contract expired. Montgomery, who became a free agent, looked for a new team, but was not even offered a minor league offer and looked to Mexico.

On the other hand, Monclava, where Montgomery will play, is a team where Addison Russell, who is currently transferred to Kiwoom Heroes, played.
