On February 13th, fellow FanSided writer Matt Fisher reported that the Baltimore Orioles and Korean pitcher Suk-Min Yoon were able to come to an agreement on a multi-year deal.

Well according to MLB.com, Suk-Min Yoon has passed his physical and now the deal is official. The Orioles were able to snatch up another top free agent pitcher with a three year, $5.75 million deal. Yoon took the physical on Friday for the Orioles and apparently he tweeted out a photo of himself wearing a Baltimore Orioles hat.

Spoiler much Suk-Min? Anyways, this is a great signing by the Orioles who were looking to add another arm to their pitching staff. They were recently tied to veteran pitcher A.J. Burnett, but he ended up signing with the Philadelphia Phillies.

MLB.com also reports that the Orioles may hold a news conference on Tuesday to officially introduce him. He’s still not able to report to training camp, as he’s waiting for his Visa issue to be resolved.

Either way, he’ll hit the ground running and should have a great year with this Orioles team.
