‘Stone Buddha’ puts Japan dream on hold

Samsung Lions closer Oh Seung-hwan decided to stay with his Korean club for 2013 and put his dreams of playing overseas on hold, team officials said yesterday.

Song Sam-bong, general manager of the Korea Baseball Organization club, said Oh, the league’s all-time saves leader, told him in their meeting he would pitch one more season for the Daegu-based team before testing the free agent market.

Earlier, the hard-throwing right-hander had sought opportunities to play in Japan. He completed his seventh full season in 2012 and became eligible to play overseas, on the condition the Lions would consent to let him test the market.
