(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kim Kyung-yoon = Has interest in Yang Hyun-jong (33) gone? Or is it a simple glitch?
Round Rock Express, a minor league triple-A team under the Texas Rangers, announced on the 20th (Korean time) a new club entry with the name of Yang Hyun-jong.
Yang Hyun-jong was designated for assignment from MLB Texas on the 18th, but he moved to Round Rock after two days without being traded or released to another team.
However, Round Rock drew attention by incorrectly introducing the history of Yang Hyun-jong, who rejoined the group.
The club introduced the team that Yang Hyun-jong participated in the 2020 and 2019 seasons as ‘KIA (JAPAN)’.
It seems that they misunderstood the KBO League KIA Tigers as a Japanese team.
Round Rock correctly introduced KIA as a Korean team at the beginning of the season when Yang Hyun-Jong played in the minor leagues.
The club wrote down Yang Hyun-jong’s date of birth and place of birth accurately.
