CHAN HO PARK
RP, Pittsburgh Pirates
Born: June 3, 1973
Height: 6′ 2″
Signed: Int. FA, Los Angeles Dodgers, 1994
How Acquired: Waiver Claim
Agent: Jeff Borris
|The Pirates acquired Chan Ho Park off of waivers to help out their bullpen, although the move is somewhat confusing. Park is only under control through the end of the 2010 season, at which point he becomes a free agent. Park has been a decent pitcher at times in his career, including recently with the Dodgers in 2008 and the Phillies in 2009. He’s been good out of the bullpen, with the ability to provide the occasional spot start. It’s unlikely he remains with the Pirates beyond the 2010 season.|
