SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have signed South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon to a three-year contract.
Yoon, 27, had a 73-59 record with a 3.19 ERA in nine seasons with the KIA Tigers in the Korean Baseball Organization.
Yoon is expected to compete for a spot in Baltimore’s starting rotation.
The deal was announced on Monday. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Orioles waived outfielder Jimmy Paredes, who was claimed by Kansas City. Baltimore claimed Paredes on Saturday.
