Orioles, Chong Tae-Hyon Near Deal

TUESDAY, 11:01pm: Peter Schmuck of The Baltimore Sun says the two sides are still finalizing some details and could have the deal wrapped up by Wednesday. An announcement is not imminent, and Tae-Hyon's physical will be delayed by Thanksgiving.

MONDAY, 9:13pm: The Orioles are close to a deal with Tae-Hyon, but haven't officially agreed to terms, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun (on Twitter). The right-hander would get a Major League deal, which means Baltimore will have to clear a 40-man roster spot.

8:22pm: The Orioles agreed to sign Korean right-hander Chong Tae-Hyon, according to MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli (on Twitter). The sides had been discussing a deal earlier today.
