Korean Baseball Prospects

Baseball Prospectus | Events | Chat with Kevin Goldstein:

"Kris (Chicago): Thanks for answering my first question, Kevin. This will be my last one(albeit in two parts): What have you heard about Kim Jin-Yeong, the Korean pitcher that the Cubs reportedly signed for $1.2 million? Speaking of Korean pitchers, what do you expect from Dae-Eun Rhee, once he returns from TJ surgery?

Kevin Goldstein: Yeong is very intriguing. Smooth easy arm with projection, already 90-92 mph as a teenager. Rhee really was one of the better arms in the Midwest League when healthy, so I'm looking forward to his return."

Annyeoung haseyo. Of course, Chicago Cubs SS Lee Hak-Ju is the one fantasy players have more interest in. From Baseball America:

"Lee is more athletic than Starlin Castro, which could puch Castro to 2B when they're double play partners in Chicago"
