Not that anyone really expected them to do, but the Pirates aren’t stopping with Adam Frazier.
On Monday afternoon, they also traded reliever Clay Holmes to the Yankees for a pair of infield prospects, Hoy Jun Park and Diego Castillo.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Park was one of the more sought after international free agents in 2014, commanding a $1 million signing bonus at age 18.
Park, 25, currently ranks first among all Class AAA East players in batting (.327), on-base percentage (.475), OPS (1.042) and walks (46). He’s tied for third in runs scored (44) and fourth in slugging percentage (.567).
It would seem based on pedigree and performance that he would have a chance this season with the major league club. Park has played one game for the Yankees this season and earlier this season made the jump up from Class AA.
