Yoon Suk-min goes to U.S. to seek MLB dealKia Tigers ace pitcher Yoon Suk-min left for the United States yesterday to meet with his agent, Scott Boras, about becoming a major-league pitcher in the 2014 season. Yoon will likely stay in Los Angeles for two to three weeks.
The 26-year-old right-hander is a free agent, but sources said Yoon will only go to MLB if he gets a guaranteed starting-pitcher slot.
There have been rumors that cash-strapped teams in need of starting pitchers, such as the Chicago Cubs or Minnesota Twins, are the most likely candidates to make Yoon an offer.
