Giants to sell Pill to Korean team
The San Francisco Giants have agreed to sell first baseman Brett
Pill to the Kia Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization.
The Giants say Pill has agreed to a one-year contract with the
South Korean team pending a physical after Christmas. Pill remains
on the Giants’ 40-man roster until after he passes his
Pill batted .224 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 85 at-bats for
the Giants last season. He became expendable after San Francisco
signed outfielder Michael Morse to a one-year contract earlier this
week. Morse can play some first base as well as outfield.
