MLB.COM, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), reported on the 18th (Korea time) that Seattle has signed a one-year contract with Boss. The deal is worth 1.25 million dollars, and Seattle will fill up its 40-man roster. MLB.COM evaluated the recruitment saying that “Boss is a player who will add depth to the pitching staff who are nearing completion with exactly four weeks left until spring training.”

Boss has been listed on the list of multiple teams recruited in the KBO League this offseason. Attention was focused on whether he would go to Korea, but he stayed in the U.S. on more-than-expected terms. The KBO League limits the amount that new foreign players can receive to up to $1 million (1.2 billion won), including transfer fees, annual salaries and incentives. Compared to the terms of the Seattle contract, it was inevitably difficult to recruit.

Boss, an active big leaguer, has a career record of 15 wins, 14 losses and an earned run average of 4.90. Last year, he pitched in a bullpen session in 25 games, recording one win, two losses and four-holds with an earned run average of 5.19 (34 2/3 innings). Since his MLB debut in 2018, he has pitched in the big leagues for six consecutive years. His overall record (nine years) in the minor leagues is 37 wins, 49 losses, and an earned run average of 3.70. In addition to Triple-A in 2019 and 2020, he shared a room with Eric Peddy (formerly NC Dinos) in the minor leagues under Washington.
