Suk-Min Yoon Rumors: Wednesday

Speculation ran amok last night after Korean right-hander Suk-Min Yoon tweeted a picture of himself wearing an Orioles cap, but last we heard on Tuesday evening was that no deal was in place yet. Yoon has been oft-connected to the Orioles, however (among other teams). We'll keep track of today's developments pertaining to Yoon right here…

  • Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun writes that the Orioles are negotiating with Yoon, but his source tells him that no deal has been reached, not even pending a physical. 
  • One agent asked Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, "Who would ever admit they signed with Baltimore without a physical clearance in advance?" Rosenthal continues, stating that some feel the Orioles' stinginess on physical exams this offseason — Grant Balfour and Tyler Colvin have both failed physicals after agreeing with Baltimore — is due to the fact that the team was burned by Tsuyoshi Wada's two-year, $8.15MM contract (All Twitter links). The Japanese lefty signed prior to the 2012 season but never threw a pitch for the O's due to Tommy John surgery.

    “Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun writes The Orioles are negotiating with Yoon, but his source tells him that no deal has been reached, not even pending a physical.”

    Well I will be one who doesn’t really blame the Orioles for doing a strict physical. Let’s face it they have been burned before and if some remember the Sele signing failed then he bombed that year. If I was to pay someone 15mil I would be concerned with results as well and if Grant blows out a knee or arm then will everyone credit them?

      Technically Sele bombed in what would have been years 3 and 4 of the deal that fell through. Sele performed well for the Mariners in what would have been years 1 and 2 of the nullified 4 year deal with the Orioles.

    2% chance this guy can pass the O’s physical.

      Well, it’s better than the ‘Zero’ percent chance Angelos spends revenue sharing money! Or Duquette coughing up a draft choice to sign Jimenez!

    This offseason has entered into absurd territory for Os fans. Between the pending physicals and tweeted non-signings.
