Hanwha Eagles re-sign Bell on $1.1 million one-year deal

The Hanwha Eagles announced Sunday they will retain the services of left-hander Chad Bell for one more season.

The KBO club said Bell has agreed to a new one-year deal with a guaranteed salary of $600,000.

Bell also got a $300,000 signing bonus and there’s an option for $200,000.

Bell went 11-11 with a 3.50 ERA in his first season for the Eagles, serving as one of the few bright spots for the club that finished in ninth place in the 10-team league.

Bell had a strong finish to the season, going 5-1 with a 1.70 ERA in his last six starts.

By signing Bell, the Eagles successfully re-sign both of their two foreign pitchers for the 2020 season. The Eagles earlier re-signed their other foreign pitcher, Warwick Saupold, and they’re trying to bring back outfielder Jared Hoying for a third straight season.

KBO teams are each permitted up to three foreign players, including a maximum two pitchers.
