South Korean baseball club NC Dinos said yesterday they have signed a former major league infielder Xavier Scruggs.
Dinos signed a one-year deal worth 1 million US dollars with the 29-year-old. The Dinos said Scruggs will fill the void of Eric Thames who recently signed a three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers in Major League Baseball (MLB).
Scruggs, who can play first base and left field, has 50 major league games under his belt, including 24 with the Miami Marlins in 2016. He made his big league debut in 2014 with the St. Louis Cardinals.
