Dodgers: ex-LA outfielder reportedly close to Korean Baseball League deal
In make the most of a bad situation news, former Dodgers outfielder DJ Peters could leave the country for more money and better playing time.
First, Peters made his MLB debut with LA last season, battling for an average of .192 in 18 games before being designated for an assignment and ultimately traded to Texas Rangers. Where most of the old Dodgers end up, apparently. In 52 games with Texas, the Glendora native reached just 0.198, but connected on 12 homers while leading by 34 points.
After the Rangers added a number of players this winter, including not only Corey Seager and infielder Marcus Semien, but also outfielder Kole Calhoun, Billy McKinney and Zach Reks, it looked like playing time could be harder to find at Globe Life Field for Peters. With that, KBO insider Daniel Kim recently tweeted that former Dodger could end up signing with the Lotte Giants.

At just 25 years old, now is the perfect time for Peters to get out there and find some financial security. Especially with so much going on with MLB locking.
