The SSG Landers have signed former Chiba Lotte Marines pitcher Enny Romero on a one-year deal worth up to $1 million.
 
The 31-year-old pitcher will earn $800,000 in guaranteed salary with $200,000 in incentives. 
 
Romero joins the Landers after playing a year a half with the Marines in the Nippon Professional Baseball league. He finished the 2022 season with a 3.36 ERA with eight wins and nine losses over 20 games.
 
Romero brings a range of experience, having played in the U.S. majors and minors and spent two separate spells in Japan, having also played for the Chunichi Dragons in the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
 
Romero joins Kirk McCarty and Guillermo Heredia to complete the foreign player lineup for the reigning champion SSG Landers. All three are new players to the KBO, with the Landers opting to start afresh next season despite winning both the pennant and championship title this year.
 
With Romero's signing there is now just one spot left in the KBO's foreign player roster still to be filled, with the NC Dinos still left one pitcher spot open. 
 
Under KBO rules, each club is allowed to sign a maximum three players and at least one has to be a position player. In reality, that means that teams always sign two pitchers and a position player. The Dinos have currently signed outfielder Jason Martin and pitcher Erick Fedde.
