LG Twins Sign the First New Foreign Dude for 2011

Ben Jukich, welcome to the KBO! Someone in the KBO must have a relationship with someone in the Cincinatti Reds organization because Jukich feels like the tenth guy to make the move from the Reds' AAA team to the KBO in the last few years.

Ben is a 28-year old lefty who was originally drafted in the thirteenth round of the 2006 draft by the Oakland A's. Ben has spent the last three years with Cincinati's AAA team. He's thrown both as a starter and reliever. Last year he made 29 appearances and 18 starts. Ben went 7-4 with one save while throwing 115 1/3 innings last year. He ended the season with a 3.90 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. He struck out 103 and walked 46.
