Yang Hyun-jong (33) was relegated to Triple-A and was assigned for assignment by the Texas Rangers.
The Texas team announced on the 18th (Korean time) that the Los Angeles Dodgers had traded left-handed pitcher Kelvin Bautista to right-handed pitcher Dennis Santana. He also revealed that he had assigned Yang Hyun-jong to register Santana on the 40-man roster.
Yang Hyun-jong, who was removed from the 40-man roster, has to wait for 7 days for another team to sign him. If the team they want to sign does not appear, they will either accept the minor leagues or be released as free agents.

Evan Grant, a reporter for the Dallas Morning News, said, “I don’t think Hyun-Jong Yang will receive an offer from another team.”
