Darin Ruff eventually chose free agent (FA) status.
On the 14th (Korean time), the San Francisco Giants decided to transfer the rough to Triple-A in the minor league instead of releasing it. This is because the team that wanted to sign him through a trade did not appear. San Francisco made a DFA assignment for Ruff last week.
However, Ruff refused to go to the minor leagues and decided to enter the free agency market. I said goodbye to San Francisco.
Ruff was released from the New York Mets ahead of this season. He subsequently returned to the big leagues after signing a minor league contract with San Francisco.
Ruff will receive a $3.5 million salary from the Mets. The team that recruits Ruff only has to pay the major league minimum salary.
