Korean Star Suk-Min Yoon To Try Out For MLB Teams

Korean pitcher Suk-Min Yoon is coming to the U.S. to try out for MLB teams, the Korean paper Chosun Ilbo reports. Yoon hired Scott Boras to represent him following the 2011 season, and there was some speculation he would pitch in the big leagues in 2012, but he ultimately stayed in Korea. He appears to be a free agent and therefore would not require a posting fee.

Yoon starred for South Korea in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. In 2011, he was the MVP of the Korea Baseball Organization. He throws a fastball that sits in the low 90s, along with a slider and a changeup. Yoon, 27, posted a 4.00 ERA for the KIA Tigers in 2013, with 7.8 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9.
