Aaron Brooks Re-Signs With KBO’s KIA Tigers

2 weeks ago

Righty Aaron Brooks will remain in Korea for a second season. He has inked a new deal to remain with the KIA Tigers, the club announced (h/t Dan Kurtz of MyKBO, via Twitter).

Brooks is slated to take home a $ 200K signing bonus and $ 1MM payday — the reward for a productive 2020 season. Over 151 1/3 innings in his debut KBO showing, Brooks worked to a 2.50 ERA with 130 strikeouts and 24 walks.

If he’s able to repeat that effort in 2021, Brooks could look to follow some other players in moving back to the majors from Korea. He didn’t find much success in his first four seasons at the game’s highest level, carrying a 6.49 cumulative ERA over 170 2/3 frames.
