Outfielder Jack Rex (30), who played for the professional baseball Lotte Giants, is trying again on the American professional baseball Major League (MLB) stage.

American sports media Yadbacher reported on the 15th (Korean time) that the San Diego team signed a minor league contract with Rex earlier this month.

Rex, who made his big league debut as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2021, briefly played for the Texas Rangers in 2022 and came to Korea as a Lotte foreign player.

Rex, who played in the KBO League in the second half of 2022, successfully renewed his contract by playing with a batting average of 0.330, 8 home runs, and 34 RBI in 56 games, but was released last year after hitting only 0.246, 4 home runs, and 30 RBI in 55 games due to a knee injury.

Lotte released Rex and recruited infielder Nico Goodrum, but Goodrum also performed poorly and failed to renew his contract.

When Rex overcomes competition in the minor league and re-enters the big league, he will become teammates with players he met on opposing teams in the KBO League, such as Ha-seong Kim (28) and Woo-seok Ko (25).
