Rangers grant Adrian Sampson unconditional release to play in Korea

On Monday the Rangers announced right-handed pitcher Adrian Sampson had been granted an unconditional release to pitch in the Korea Baseball Organization in 2020. Sampson signed with the Lotte Giants who finished 10th in the KBO last season.

A source told The News Texas sold Sampson’s rights with his permission. The Rangers will collect an undisclosed amount of money in that deal.

The Washington native Sampson made his MLB debut with the Seattle Mariners in 2016 and was claimed on waivers by the Rangers later that season. Sampson had his first extended stint in the majors in 2019. During that stint Sampson tallied 108 strikeouts with a 5.89 ERA in 125.1 innings.

So, how do we interpret this move?
