Luke Scott Signs With Korea’s SK Wyverns

1:06pm: Scott will receive a $250K base salary in addition to a $50K signing bonus, according to Korean media outlet Yonhap (hat tip: MyKBO.net's Dan Kurtz on Twitter).

11:38am: Luke Scott has signed a one-year deal with the SK Wyverns of the Korea Baseball Organization, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish. Scott is represented by PSI Management.

The 35-year-old Scott batted .241/.326/.415 with nine homers in 291 plate appearances for the Rays last season. He spent time on the disabled list for the fifth straight season in 2013, missing time due to a strained lower back and a calf strain.

Scott's numbers over the past three seasons are roughly league average — .231/.303/.421 (100 OPS+) — but he was a force for the Astros and Orioles in the five previous years. From 2006-10, Scott batted .272/.357/.512 with 103 homers in 2233 plate appearances.
