Remember Andrew Albers? He’s Canadian.
Oh, he also pitched for the Minnesota Twins in 2013. In that season, Albers came up to the big leagues and did very well for a longer stretch of time. It wouldn’t be accurate to say that he dominated, but dominated as much as a guy like Andrew Albers could at the MLB level.

Albers ended up being 2-5 on the season with a 4.05 ERA, but still was a highlight of the 2013 season for the Twins.
Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press talked to the former Twin recently and his possible return to the Twins came up.
Albers did not impress in his first season in the Korean Baseball Organization. Albers ended up being 6-13 with a 5.89 ERA in the KBO. The KBO is very much swayed to the offensive side of the game, but still that’s not good.
The KBO is in a holding period right now, so it is not clear whether Albers will become a free agent, but there is definitely a chance of him being released.
Albers told Berardino that he and the Twins left on good terms, so if Albers will be pitching on this side of the globe again, the Twins definitely have a shot in bringing him back. Albers will be looking to go back to the KBO, Albers got paid a solid $700,000 last season.
