Twins release Andrew Albers to play in South Korea

January 31, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have released left-hander Andrew Albers, allowing him to sign with a South Korean team.

The Twins announced Thursday the 28-year-old Albers cleared waivers. He will join the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization.

Albers went 2-5 with a 4.05 ERA in 10 starts for the Twins last season, throwing 8 1-3 scoreless innings in his major league debut Aug. 6 at Kansas City to set a team record. But with Kevin Correia, Phil Hughes, Ricky Nolasco and Mike Pelfrey set as starters, there's only one spot open.

Albers received the organization's minor league pitcher of the year award after going 11-5 with a 2.86 ERA for Triple-A Rochester. He had 32 walks and 116 strikeouts in 132 1-3 innings.
