Samsung Lions Sign Mitch Talbot

The Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization have signed Mitch Talbot for $300K, according to Korean reports relayed by Dan of MyKBO.net. The Indians, Talbot's former team, outrighted him off of the roster after the regular season, which made him a free agent.

The 28-year-old posted a 6.64 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 63 2/3 innings for the Indians in 2011, though he spent time on the disabled list with a lower back strain in July. He pitched 159 1/3 innings of 4.41 ERA ball in 2010 after the Indians acquired him from Tampa Bay for Kelly Shoppach in December of 2009.
