Reports: Cardinals finalize deal with Korean lefty Kwang-hyun Kim

The St. Louis Cardinals are reportedly set to announced the signing of 31-year-old pitcher Gwang-hyun Kim in a press conference at Busch Stadium, Tuesday afternoon.

Multiple reports say the lefty was in St. Louis for a physical and the team was working to get a deal done.

Kim will come over from the Korea Baseball Organization, who in his last 12 season – all with SK Wyverns — he had a 3.27 ERA with 7.8 K/9 against 3.5 BB/9 across 1,673 2/3 innings before the club posted him, according to MLB Trade Rumors.

Pair of South Korean players made available to MLB teams

NEW YORK (AP) — NEW YORK — Two 31-year-old players from the South Korean League have been posted by their clubs and made available to major league teams.

Negotiations may start Friday with left-hander Kwang-Hyun Kim of the SK Wyverns and outfielder Jae-Hwan Kim of the Doosan Bears, the commissioner’s said Thursday. A deal must be reached by Jan. 5 at 5 p.m.

Interesting- I sincerely didn’t realize that Korean baseball had the posting rules that Japanese baseball has.
