The Orioles have been talking to Korean Pitcher Chong Tae-Hyon, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. Tae-Hyon is a submarine-type pitcher who pitched in the World Baseball Classic in 2009.
It is rumored that he has signed for a 2 year, $3.2 million dollar contract, according to MyKBO.net. Tae-Hyun is the first Korean player to go directly to the MLB if the signing is true, according to MyKBO.net.
Brief scouting report from Don: Submarine style pitcher in the Clay Rapada mold. Sinking fastball is staple pitch, extreme ground ball pitcher. He is not over-powering, but the arm angle and movement keeps him effective.
