Blue Jays minor leaguer, Scott Copeland to play in the KBO

(Translated, news article via SK Naver sports.)

Blue Jays minor league pitcher, Scott Copeland (28 years old), just agreed to sign a contract to play for the KBO league team LG Twins today. The money contract for Scott Copeland was said to be on a one year deal worth 750,000 USD, and will join the team sometime next week. With this acquisition, the LG Twins have now fulfilled their foreign player limit quota with 3 on the active roster (starting pitcher Henry Sosa, infielder 3rd baseman Luis Jimenez and now Scott Copeland). Copeland will be used primarily as the team’s number 3 or 4 starter in the rotation this KBO league season.

While in the minor leagues, Copeland posted an ERA of 4.08, recording 49 wins and 48 losses in 772.0 innings pitched… he finished his 2015 minor league stint with Triple-A Buffalo recording 11 wins and 6 losses, while having an ERA of 2.95 in the season.
