Three pitchers in the KBO that could interest the Rays

Around this time last year, I wrote about Merill Kelly as a potential player of interest for the Rays.

The team that got Kelly was his hometown team, Arizona, who got small achievements through their investment (183.0 IP, 4.42 ERA, 4.51 FIP, 2.0 fWAR). It’s not a noticeable performance, but it’s a good one considering his cheap contract (2 years/$5.5M (2019-20), plus 2021-22 options).

This offseason, there seems to be more MLB articles about players who played in Korea. MLB teams and their fans seem to think small invests for the moderate returns like Kelly could be beneficial.
