The South Korean baseball club Kiwoom Heroes announced Saturday they've decided to part ways with their slumping American player Taylor Motter.
The Heroes said they've asked the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) to place Motter on waivers. Once Motter is put on the waiver wire by the league -- a mere formality after the Heroes made their request -- he can be picked up by another club within the next seven days. Whichever clubs acquires Motter must pay the Heroes 3 million won (US$2,435).
If Motter clears waivers, meaning if he doesn't get selected by any other team, he then becomes a free agent.
