Source: #Orioles and Suk-Min Yoon are discussing final details of the contract. Can't say it's a done deal. But O's are clear front-runner.

With a shoulder injury Yoon lost about 2 mph on his fastball, and converted to relief during 2013 season.

 

 

 

That is from the wikipedia article linked.

 

is Moon being thought of as a starter or a reliever? I really hope he is a candidate to be a starter.

Though a starter, he has only thrown what we would consider an entire season's work (~175+ IP) once, in 2011. As best I can gather, the average starter in the KBO throws around 150 to 180 innings, making 25 to 30 starts, per season, often supplementing those starts with relief outings here and there.

 

Yet at the same time, any team that signs Yoon will likely do so with the intention of using him as a starter. So don’t expect a team to take a flier on the right-hander without a thorough evaluation of his medical history.

I wish him luck passing the O's physical

he's been a starter for most of his career. but he was injured last year and mostly worked out of the pen. so he could be a reliever, but he's probably being considered for the rotation.

 

from what I've read, it sounds like he is a #2 caliber guy, but the injury has lowered his value to mlb clubs. he could be another Chen, or he could be another Wada.

Koji 2.0

 

He's a lot younger however. I'm guessing a deal much like Chen's is being offered (3 yrs @ 4M per with a 4th yr option).  That still leaves money for one more guy if the $17M quote is legit.  I've always been a Duquette apologist and these 11th hour deals can provide bargains occasionally.  Time to step up Dan and get a deal done.  Mr. Angelos please do not embarass another guy like you did Balfour and Colvin.

If he can be a serviceable #3 starter, it's a staff improvement.  However, even if that's true, it's probably too little too late to really help this team challenge for a playoff spot.

 

BTW: His middle name would more properly (phonetically) be spelled Seok. And, yes, it is pronounced more like suck than sook.  Let's hope that's not an omen.

Reminds me of Fukudome a few years back.  ESPN made a commercial making fun of that pronunciation.

he tanked. he was the position player equivalent of Irabu. he wasn't good enough for mlb. the Cubs learned that the hard way.

He isn't the signing that the O's need. They already missed that boat this offseason waiting for the market to play out.

of all the FA pitchers who were available this winter, Santana was among the best, not that the O's are going to sign him. this wasn't a winter filled with sure thing pitchers. Kazmir is iffy, Garza, Jimenez, Josh Johnson. Colon, Burnett and Santana are the 3 who really give me confidence that they'll deliver on the investment. but none can lead a staff or put a team over the top.

He and Balfour will be great additions.

The only positive thing I can say is that we're not losing the 1st round draft pick for this guy. Maybe we'll get lucky but you have to wonder if he has the stamina to start for an entire season.

He isn't even going to come here. No chance he passes the immovable object that is the O's' physical, and that's assuming a deal is in place, which it isn't.

less than $2M/yr? that seems like a steal. 

 

put him in the #5 slot, where he'll get bumped from starts, here and there throughout the season. that will keep his inning totals down and help him ease into the much more demanding schedule of MLB. 

 

if they added Santana, I would actually have some hope for this season. but that ain't gonna happen.

Low risk/ high reward. Solid international signing, makes the Orioles the talk of the Korean Pennisula.

But like Angelos and his good friend Fidel Castro, Angelos and Kim Jung-il May have a side agreement keeping Koreans off the roster.
