Yankees trying to unload Chan Ho Park?

New, 5 comments

ESPN.com's Jayson Stark is reporting that the Yankees are trying to move pitcher Chan Ho Park. Park is 2-1 in 25 games this season for the Yankees, but he has posted his worst ERA in nearly four seasons.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Chan Ho Park 2-1 25 0 0 0 0 2 32.1 37 22 20 7 9 26 5.57 1.42

Historically, Park has been a much better second half pitcher than the first half of his season. He owns a 3.92 ERA after the All-Star break compared to a 4.71 ERA in the first half. So far this July, Park has a 2.45 ERA in 7 appearances. 

Park could fit a team in need of a cheap bullpen option. He is 37 years old, and only signed a one year deal worth 1.2 million dollars. If the team was willing to surrender a low-level prospect, they could get a free arm who could help down the stretch. 

The Reds could be a potential fit.
