Korean southpaw Yang Hyeon-jong, who recently signed a split contract with the Texas Rangers, left for the U.S. last week.
After quarantining himself for a period of time upon his arrival, he will join in the Rangers' spring training in Arizona.
Yang is not guaranteed to play in Major League games, so he needs to make an impression during training to make the team's big league roster, which would allow him to earn up to US$1.85 million.
"I know there are more concerns than excitement or expectations. But it's my decision [to challenge myself to play in the U.S.] and I don't want any regrets when I come back to Korea. I will do my very best to show myfans that I made the right decision," Yang said.
