The news broke yesterday that reigning MVP for the NC Dinos, Erick Fedde, in the KBO is making his way back to Major League Baseball, signing a two-year, $15 million contract with the Chicago White Sox, per Jeff Passan of ESPN. Fedde will now join Dylan Cease, Michael Kopech, and Michael Soroka in the White Sox rotation.
Fedde had a dominant season in the KBO, where he pitched to a 2.00 ERA and posted a 20-6 record. The 30-year old first made his MLB debut in 2017 and has a career 5.41 ERA. He spent six seasons in Washington before heading overseas to the KBO.
The White Sox are getting an arm in the rotation that is low risk, high reward. With the trade rumors of Dylan Cease circulating, filling up their rotation was a priority. Fedde, who has been great in the KBO, will now get another shot at being a major league pitcher.
