The KIA Tigers of the Korea Baseball Organization announced Friday that they have re-signed Hector Noesi to a one-year, $2 million contract.
The 30-year-old right-hander hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2015. Last year (his second in the KBO), he went 20-5 with a 3.48 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 149/45 K/BB ratio across 201 2/3 innings. He may have generated some interest stateside, but will remain where he's comfortable and having success. Sat, Dec 2, 2017 09:50:00 AM

The KIA Tigers of the Korea Baseball Organization have re-signed Hector Noesi to a one-year, $1.7 million contract.

The length and monetary figure are identical to what Noesi initially signed for with the Tigers last November. During his five-year MLB career with the Yankees, Mariners, Rangers and White Sox, Noesi pitched to a 5.30 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 279/146 K/BB ratio over 395 1/3 frames. In his initial stint in the KBO, Noesi pitched to a 3.40 ERA over 206 innings. He notched a quality start in 21 of his 31 outings.

Hector Noesi signed a one-year, $1.7 million contract with the KIA Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Noesi is the second-highest-paid foreign player in the league, behind only Esmil Rogers. The 28-year-old owned a 6.89 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 10 appearances with the White Sox last season before being outrighted off their 40-man roster in June.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that Hector Noesi is expected to sign a contract with the KIA Tigers in the Korean Baseball Organization.

The 28-year-old right-hander appeared in 10 games for the White Sox in 2015 (five starts), registering a 6.89 ERA, 1.78 WHIP and 22/17 K/BB ratio over 32 2/3 innings. It could be a good opportunity for him to get his once-promising career back on track.

White Sox sent RHP Hector Noesi outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Noesi cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. He's posted a 6.89 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in five starts and five relief appearances this season for the White Sox.

White Sox designated RHP Hector Noesi for assignment.

Noesi owns a rough 6.89 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in five starts and five relief appearances this season for Chicago. The 28-year-old right-hander has had some success in the past, so he may draw interest on waivers.

Hector Noesi fell to 0-4 on Monday against the Blue Jays after allowing five runs in seven innings of work.

The Jays scored four times in the first inning: twice on a Chris Colabello single and two more on a Justin Smoak home run. Josh Donaldson tacked on with a solo home run in the second, but Noesi settled down from there. He allowed five hits in total with three walks and four strikeouts. Noesi was re-inserted into the rotation after a spell in the bullpen, but now carries a 5.84 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP and a 20/14 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He'll take the hill next in Houston to face the Astros.

Hector Noesi (back) is available out of the bullpen on Monday.

Noesi left Saturday's start with a lower back contusion. The fact that the White Sox have told him to be ready to pitch in relief suggests that they're keeping Carlos Rodon in the rotation, although they've yet to officially make that announcement.

Hector Noesi left Saturday's start with a lower back contusion.

Noesi exited with two outs in the second inning after getting hit by a Billy Hamilton line drive. Right-hander Scott Carroll entered the game in his place. Noesi allowed three hits and two walks but zero runs before leaving. The White Sox are calling him day-to-day.

Hector Noesi allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Noesi was actually better than his line looks, giving up just four hits while striking out five, but two of the hits allowed left the park. A Ryan Raburn two-run single off reliever Carlos Rodon plated the other two runs credited to Noesi. Rodon may eventually be Noesi's competition for a rotation spot but it won't be soon. Noesi will take on the Royals on Sunday.

Hector Noesi struggled mightily with his command in Friday's loss to the Twins, issuing six walks over 4 2/3 innings.

Noesi was able to work around most of the baserunners, surrendering just two runs on four hits while striking out six on the afternoon. A few more outings like this, and the White Sox may wise up and insert Carlos Rodon into the rotation. Noesi remains strictly a low-level AL-only option for Saturday's matchup against the Tigers in Detroit.

Hector Noesi struck out five but allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday against the Indians.

He yielded five hits -- including a pair of home runs -- and issued two walks. Noesi holds a solid 3.68 ERA this spring, which you'd think would be good enough to cement the fifth spot in the rotation. However, the White Sox for some reason might give Brad Penny the job.

Hector Noesi pitched well in Friday's Cactus League start against the Cubs, allowing two runs on two hits over 4 2/3 innings.

The hard-throwing right-hander punched out five on the afternoon while issuing just one walk. All of the damage against him came on a two-run homer off the bat of David Ross in the second inning. Noesi will open the season as the fifth starter in the White Sox rotation (or the fourth starter while Chris Sale is out), and though he carries ratio risk, his strikeout potential makes him an interesting late round flier in AL-only formats.

Hector Noesi allowed one run while striking out three over three innings against the Giants on Thursday.

He gave up two hits and walked one in the outing. It's the second straight solid Cactus League start for Noesi, as he tossed a couple perfect innings last week. The White Sox will rely on the righty as their No. 5 starter this season.

Hector Noesi pitched a pair of perfect frames in Saturday's Cactus League start against the Mariners.

Noesi induced three ground balls and an infield pop-up en route to facing the minimum. The right-hander, who posted a mediocre 4.39 ERA over 166 innings for the White Sox last season, will pitch out of the back of the rotation again in 2015.
