Two New Foreign Players
According to Korean sports betting sources, Brito played for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders in the Triple A. He had .251/.315.376 with nine home runs, 53 runs-batted-in, and 23 steals in 107 appearances.
The Tigers will use Brito as a gap hitter who can cover the outfield effectively and run the bases during the offense.
On the other hand, Williams hasn’t played in the majors yet. The St. Louis Cardinals drafted him in the second round in 2014. He played in the Triple-A and Double-A in 2021 for the San Francisco Giants franchise.
Williams played 29 games in 2021 and has a 6-4 record with an ERA of 2.77 in 78 innings. Also, he struck out 69, hit eleven, and walked 36. Online sports wagering experts expect Williams to bring his 155 kph fastball to the KBO.
