Having already added birther, gun nut and race-baiter to his lengthy off-field resume, 9 year MLB veteran Luke Scott (above) has seen his short tenure in South Korea’s Korean Baseball Organization come to end after being kicked to the curb yesterday by the SK Wyverns. Scott, hampered by injuries for most of the 2014 season, “batted.267/.392/.505 while launching six homers and driving in 17 RBI in 130 plate appearances,” reports Vavel.com’s Anton Joe, prior to a fateful dispute with club manager Lee Man-Soo.
The heated exchange is believed to have been over the management of Scott’s injury rehabilitation. He had been rehabbing a foot injury that has kept him sidelined since July 4. Scott could reportedly be heard calling Lee a “coward” and a “liar” during their heated exchange.
According to Yonhap News, Scott later told reporters in the dugout that Lee and the management didn’t respect his own way of rehabbing and forced him to follow different steps.
The Wyverns made it clear that their decision to release Scott was in direct response to his actions, saying they felt he had “behaved in a manner that was detrimental to the team.”
