MLB Rumors: Suk-Min Yoon down to two teams, could sign soon

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Suk-Min Yoon, who currently pitches in Korea, has drawn the interest of a number of teams this off-season. A 27-year-old right-handed pitcher who can start and come out of the bullpen, Yoon has apparently narrowed his decision down to two teams.

MyKBO provides the report:

The Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins were among the teams said to be interested in Yoon. For Minnesota’s part, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press passes along the following tidbits:

The Twins have built some decent depth this off-season, so Yoon would likely have to compete for his role there and could be used either in the rotation or out of the bullpen.

Scouting reports on Yoon have his fastball sitting in the low 90′s to go along with an above average change-up. The combination of his age and his versatility will make him a solid though unspectacular signing for whichever team lands him.

    The name Suk-Min seems to suggest that the Twins might not be the best place for him.
