Former Blue Jays currently playing in the Korean Baseball Organization
A 28th-round selection of the Blue Jays back in 2013, reliever Matt Dermody appeared in 28 games with the Blue Jays from 2016 to 2017, pitching to a 5.33 ERA through 25.1 innings. He would be DFA’d in early 2018 and underwent Tommy John surgery in May of that year, sitting out the rest of the season and appearing in only 15 games with the Buffalo Bisons in 2019.
After that season, Dermody started the year in Independent Ball before signing a MiLB deal with the Chicago Cubs late into the season. The left-hander spent the 2021 campaign in the NPB with the Saitama Seibu Lions before rejoining the Cubs on a MiLB deal for the 2022 season, appearing in just one game for the Cubs and spending most of the year in AAA, later being released on August 9th.
Dermody recently signed with the NC Dinos in the KBO and only has three appearances with his new club, allowing eight earned runs through 15.1 innings while working out of the rotation. He has allowed two home runs compared to five walks and 16 strikeouts and owns a 1.249 WHIP with an 8.2 H/9 as a starter with the Dinos.
