Buffaloes send Park down to minors


Orix Buffaloes right-hander Park Chan Ho has been sent to the minors after a string of lackluster performances, the Pacific League club said Monday.

Park, 37, was taken off the active roster following a disastrous outing against the Chunichi Dragons on Sunday in which he yielded six runs in 3? innings, suffering a PL-worst fifth loss.

Park, who had stints in the majors with several teams, including most recently the Pittsburgh Pirates and the New York Mets in 2010, has won only one of his seven starts and has a 4.29 ERA.
