Jeff Passan reports that Suk-Min Yoon — 2011 MVP of the Korean Baseball Organization — has hired Scott Boras and could be posted in time to play in MLB next season.
It’s hard to gauge how a Korean pitcher would do here. Could he be early-vintage Chan-Ho Park? Could he simply be the equivalent of a decent double-A starter? I don’t know that there’s a big enough sample of KBO players who made the move to the majors to say anything super intelligent.
For now just know that he has a 93 m.p.h. fastball, what Passan calls a hard slider and what scouts say is an above-average change. In 172 1/3 innings this season he had 178 strikeouts and a 2.45 ERA.
