According to a Korean report (via Naver Sports), the Pirates have offered outfielder/first baseman Hyun-Soo Kim a contract worth $3 million. Details aren’t specific about whether it’s a one-year deal or a multiyear deal where $3 million is the average annual salary.
Kim has spent the past ten years playing in the KBO for the Doosan Bears. The 27-year-old put up strong numbers this past season, hitting a career best 28 home runs while posting a .979 OPS in 141 games. With the success of Jung-Ho Kang in 2015, Kim has a chance to be an above average contributor in the big leagues. The Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres have reportedly made offers to him as well.
