Free Agent News Grab Bag

The KBO has 17 free agents this year. A full list can be found here.

KIA ace Yoon Seok-min wants to make the move to MLB and he wants to hire Scott Boras as his agent.

Free agent/Giants slugger Lee Dae-ho says he'll stay with Lotte if he stays in Korea. He's still weighing options between Lotte, Japan and searching for a deal in the US.

Lee Seung-yeop sounds like he's ready to make his return to the KBO next year. Lee left for Japan after setting the single-season homerun record in Asia. He struggled with injuries recently and spent last season with the Orix Buffaloes. Actually, he spent most of the year not playing for Orix. He's been linked with a return to Samsung for a few months.

Former Hanhwa Eagles slugger Kim Tae-gyun will also return to Korea next season. In 2010, Kim hit 21 homers in his first season in Japan, but only hit one in 31 games last year for the Chiba Lotte Marines. He's been linked with a return to Hanhwa.

Park Chan-ho will also be returning to Korea next year. He's been linked with the Hanhwa Eagles for a long, long time.
