A foreign catcher from Kiwoom signs a minor contract with the Dodgers… Is there a possibility of promotion to the big leagues?
Former Kiwoom Heroes foreign hitter David Freitas wears a LA Dodgers uniform.
According to the report of the American sports media ‘MLB Trade Rumors’ on the 10th (Korean time), Freitas agreed to a minor league contract with the Dodgers and plans to join as an invited player for next month’s spring camp.
He made his big league debut with the Atlanta Braves in 2017 and played for the Seattle Mariners and Milwaukee Brewers. He appeared in 59 career big league games, batting just 200 (25 hits in 125 at-bats), 1 home run, 8 RBIs and 13 runs. 메이저놀이터
While he was in Milwaukee, he did not play in the regular season in 2020, but had the honor of being included in the postseason roster. He stepped in to bat once but struck out.
While playing for Kiwoom in 2021, he participated in 43 games and stayed with a batting average of 2.59, 36 hits, 2 homers, 14 RBIs and 13 points.
The media explained that the reason the Dodgers recruited Freitas was to strengthen depth. The media pointed out that batting must be supported in order to have a chance to be promoted to the big leagues.
