According to a report from Korean news service SBS, as translated by Dan Kurtz at MyKBO.net, free agent right-hander Suk-Min Yoon had a throwing session in front of Orioles and Giants scouts this past Friday at the University of California-Irvine.
Yoon, who has served as both a starter and reliever, made about 30 full-effort throws from atop a mound.
The 27-year-old is also thought to be drawing interest from the Red Sox, Indians, and Twins, and there was a report last week that four clubs had already made official offers. Yoon has been represented by agent Scott Boras since November 2011. He won the 2011 MVP in the Korean Baseball Organization after posting a 2.45 ERA and 178 strikeouts in 172 1/3 innings.
