Chris Flexen, 29, a former KBO player, is headed to the Colorado Rockies.

“Colorado has agreed to terms with right-hander Flexen on a minor league contract,”’s Colorado beat writer Thomas Harding reported on social media on Thursday.

Flexen has had a rough go of it this year. He was designated for assignment (DFA) by Seattle on March 28, and was traded to his hometown team, the New York Mets, just days later.

But the Mets didn’t have a spot for him. Flexen was released by the Mets on July 7, making him a free agent, and a week later he signed with Colorado to give the major leagues another shot.

Since breaking into the big leagues in 2017, Flexen has played six seasons in a Mets uniform. In 108 career appearances and 427⅓ innings pitched, he has a 25-30 record with a 4.76 ERA. Flexen was the Seattle Mariners’ ace in 2021. He started all 31 games and had a career-high 14-6 record with a 3.61 ERA.토토사이트

Flexen also has experience in the KBO. With the Doosan Bears in 2020, Flexen went 8-4 with a 3.01 ERA in 21 regular-season games, and then went 2-1 with a 1.91 ERA in five postseason games, helping Doosan advance to the Korean Series for the sixth straight year.

With a fresh start in Colorado, Flexen is expected to receive a starting opportunity. “Flexen, who began the season with Seattle, has appeared in 104 games in his six major league seasons, 64 as a starter,” Harding said. “Flexen will join the Colorado Triple-A staff and be a starting option.”
