Korean Pitcher Suk Min Yoon Trying Out For MLB Teams

Korean star pitcher Suk Min Yoon is interested in pitching in the major leagues next season and is trying out for various MLB teams. Yoon has hired Scott Boras as his agent after the 2011 season, which may be enough to stay away by itself, and is now a free agent. No posting fee would be required to sign Yoon and his money would not go against the international pool cap that each team has making him more attractive.

If you recognize the name you probably saw him shine in the 2009 World Baseball Classic for Team Korea. Yoon was also the MVP of Korean Baseball in 2011 with his fastball that sits in the low 90's. Yoon also possesses a changeup and a slider and posted a 4.00 ERA in 2013 with a 7.8 K/9 and a 2.9 BB/9 ratio.

Yoon may not be the most ideal pitching free agent this season and probably is not a Plan A, Plan B, or even a Plan C but the Yankees need pitching and Yoon may be worth looking at if we pass on the likes of Matt Garza or Masahiro Tanaka.
