Brooks Raley has re-signed with the Lotte Giants of the Korea Baseball Organization.
It's a one-year deal worth $850,000. This will be the third season in the KBO for Raley, who posted a 4.21 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 140/48 K/BB ratio over 173 1/3 innings (29 starts) last season for the Lotte Giants. The 28-year-old left-hander probably would have had to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league contract had he tried to return to MLB-affiliated ball in 2017. Mon, Jan 9, 2017 12:48:00 PM

Twins optioned LHPs Brooks Raley, Logan Darnell and Edgar Ibarra, 1B Kenny Vargas, RHP Trevor May, OF Max Kepler and 2B Jorge Polanco to Triple-A Rochester; reassigned OFs Byron Buxton and Chris Rahl, 3B Miguel Sano, RHPs Alex Meyer, Lester Oliveros and Yohan Pino and Cs Kyle Knudson, Matt Koch and Stuart Turner to minor league camp.

There are obviously some big names in this group, most notably top prospects Buxton, Sano and Meyer, but none of the cuts are surprising. Buxton could possibly make his major league debut by the end of the season, while Sano will miss the year following Tommy John surgery. Meyer could begin the season at Triple-A.
