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.

So is it Kwang-hyun or Gwang-hyun?

I think "Kwang" is the commonly accepted translation, and in my experience, it should be pronounced with a K, but accompanied with a subtle G sound as well. I'm sure Mike Shannon will nail it.
