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.
