SEOUL, Dec. 16 (Yonhap) -- A recent rule change in the top domestic baseball league set off a flurry of transactions over the past week, as teams sought to bolster their rosters for the new season.
The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) last week decided to add an extra roster spot for foreign players starting in 2014. Previously, teams could sign only two foreign players, with an exception made for the league's expansion team NC Dinos, who joined the KBO in 2013 and were granted three foreign players for their first two seasons.
