Byung-Hyun Translates To Bucco

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to terms with free agent submariner Byung-Hyun Kim.  The deal is believed to be a Major League contract.

 

BTW Take:

This is a good deal to strengthen the pen, as long as Kim is kept out of the rotation he should be tolerable at the least.  I'd look at Kim as being the replacement to Torres, with less success and more heartburn.

 

UPDATE/CORRECTION (18:22):

Kim was signed to a minor league deal according to MLB Home Plate.
