SEOUL, Nov. 19 (Yonhap) -- The South Korean baseball club Kia Tigers announced Thursday they'll bring back American ace Aaron Brooks for his second season.

Brooks has agreed to a new deal worth US$1 million and will also receive a signing bonus of $200,000.

In 2020, Brooks went 11-4 with a 2.50 ERA over 151 1/3 innings through 23 starts. He was among the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) leaders in major pitching categories when he had to return home in late September to tend to a family emergency.

Brooks missed the rest of the season, while get-well wishes for his young family poured in from Tigers teammates and other KBO players and fans.

Brooks has thanked them for their continued support and said he was planning on playing in 2021.
