Korean Southpaw Kwang-Hyun Kim to Be Posted

 Kwang-Hyun Kim will be posted this offseason by his Korean team in hopes of landing a contract in the United States and in Major League Baseball. Kim has been one of the best left handers in the history of the KBO and finally has the seven seasons necessary to be posted. Just as a reminder the KBO, Korean Baseball Organization, does not fall under the same posting rules as Japanese players do. There will be a silent bid and the highest bidder will get the opportunity to discuss a contract with Kim.

Kim is 26 years old and posted a 3.42 ERA this season as one of only four, and the only Korean born pitcher, pitchers to have an ERA under 4.00 after an offensive explosion in the KBO.
