Odrisamer Despaigne Newsbeat

After short stint with White Sox, Cuban pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne is headed overseas

Odrisamer Despaigne’s tenure with the White Sox was short and unusual. Now the Cuban pitcher is heading to Korea.

Ken Rosenthal reported that the 32-year-old has agreed to a one-year deal with KT Wiz of the Korean league.

Despaigne joined the Triple-A Charlotte Knights in May and joined the White Sox less than a month later when the pitching staff was in dire need of starting arms. He was known for not wanting to warm up and throwing junk pitches (his curveball averaged 73 mph).

Something for the name fans among us.
