12/20 Transaction Roundup

The Lotte Giants have signed journeyman Bryan Corey. The 37-year old righty has appeared in 23 different uniforms during his 16 year career. That's a little high because I included all of his various minor league stops, but damn, 23 teams. Corey spent 2010 in the NPB with the Chiba Lotte Marines. Corey posted a 4.87 ERA with 30 K's and 17 BB's over 44 1/3 innings last year in Chiba. I'm guessing he'll be used to shore up the back end of the Lotte bullpen.

Nexen has traded 20-year old starter Goh Won-joon to the Lotte Giants for infielder Park Jeong-joon and pitcher Lee Jeong-hoon. Goh went 5-7 with a 4.12 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 131 innings last year. Park missed almost all of 2010 with an injury, but was useful as a bench player for the Giants in 2009. Lee is a 33-year old reliever coming off a rough season. Lee was one of the punching bags in the Lotte pen last year, but his 2009 was a career year...for him. Lee posted 8 saves and 9 holds with a 3.03 ERA in 57 appearances.
