Dodgers: Former LA Outfielder Reportedly Nearing Deal with Korean Baseball League

In making the best of a bad situation news, former Dodgers outfielder DJ Peters may be heading out of the country to secure more money and better playing time.

First, Peters made his MLB debut with LA last season, struggling to a .192 average in 18 games before being designated for assignment and ultimately traded to the Texas Rangers. Where most former Dodgers end up, apparently. In 52 games with Texas, the Glendora native hit just .198 but did connect on 12 home runs while driving in 34 runs.

After the Rangers add a number of players this winter, including not only Corey Seager and infielder Marcus Semien, but also outfielders Kole Calhoun, Billy McKinney, and Zach Reks, it looked like playing time could be harder to come by at Globe Life Field for Peters. With that, KBO insider Daniel Kim recently tweeted that the former Dodger could end up signing with the Lotte Giants

At only 25 years old, this is the prime time for Peters to get out and secure a little financial security. Particularly with so much up in the air with the MLB lockout.

  1. So as a Latin player in a new unfamiliar land, Puig need someone to teach him not to be a complete ass and to show up places on time?
