Mashahiro Tanaka is not the only Asian Free Agent pitcher who could come to MLB.

Peter Gammons (@pgammo) suggests that the right-hander from Korea, Suk-Min Yoon, could be a good fit for the San Francisco Giants. Recent reports have had the 27-year-old in talks with the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox.

Yoon is coming off of a season with the Kia Tigers in which he posted a 4.00 ERA over 87.2 IP, a below average season for the pitcher who was the MVP of KBO in 2011. He projects to be a middle of the rotation starter with a mid-90s fastball and a slider and changeup.

Two things should be noted: Scott Boras represents Yoon, and the Red Sox this week entered into an agreement with the Nexen Heroes of the KBO on a strategic partnership.
