Scott Proctor signs with Korean Baseball Team

Scott Proctor finally found a place where Joe Torre couldn’t abuse him.

Proctor has reportedly signed a contract to play with Korean baseball team the Doosan Bears, officially ending his second stint with the Yankees, according to Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.

I’m still not sure why, but the Yankees picked Proctor up off the scrap heap after the Braves released him last summer. He made eight appearances, throwing 11 innings with a 9.00 ERA.¬†He actually had decent velocity on his fastball last season, but it was completely flat and he couldn’t locate it resulting in huge 9.8 BB/9 and 15.5 H/9 rates.

    One of the worst pitchers ever.

    • David K. says:

      He was a decent reliever, maybe fourth or fith on the totem pole in the bullpen, until Joe Torre overused him and burned out his arm. No one should be pitching five consecutive days in the majors, especially a guy like Proctor who threw a lot of pitches per inning. That's just irresponsible managing.
