Park Hyo-joon moved to the Triple A team under Atlanta.
The Atlanta Braves announced on the 6th (Korean time), “Infielder Park Hyo-joon has completely moved to the Triple-A Gwinnett Stripers.”

Since then, Park Hyo-joon has been assigned three nominations (DFA) ahead of this season. He was DFA in Pittsburgh last November.
