But things aren’t looking good. Park signed with the New York Yankees in 2015, where he made his first major league debut in the 2021 season.

He was traded after just one game with the Yankees, and the following year, he was traded again from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Boston Red Sox.

Park was then traded again to Atlanta at the end of last year before finally being released last November. That’s four teams in a short period of time.

In the minors, Park played in 754 games over eight seasons, batting .251 with 50 home runs, 292 RBIs, 434 runs scored, 676 hits, a .365 OPS, and a .734 slugging percentage.

In two seasons in the majors, he batted .201 with five home runs, 20 doubles, 23 RBIs, 36 runs scored, and a .291 OPS with a .638 slugging percentage.

Park is expected to start the 2024 season in Triple-A. Oakland is the weakest team in the majors and has a very thin roster. It will be interesting to see if Park can find his way back to the majors.
