The Orioles have officially signed RHP Suk-min Yoon to a three-year contract. Yoon would become the first Korean-born player in club history.
His name may be misleading as it is doubtful that he will "Suk," the real question is will the Orioles use the 27-year old right-hander in the rotation or out of the bullpen. Yoon has a five-pitch repertoire that makes him a good fit for a starting role, but he is coming off a shoulder injury that limited him to just 11 starts last season, so it will come down to how he looks in spring training compared to Zach Britton and/or Kevin Gausman for who will get the last two spots in the Orioles starting rotation. It would seem that Britton and Yoon would have a leg up on Gausman who showed last season that he could benefit from a little more seasoning in the minor leagues.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Indians optioned P Josh Tomlin to Triple-A Columbus.
Tomlin has some upside if he can repeat his 8.13 K/9 from last season, but home runs will likely always be an issue. Tomlin has allowed 1.41 HR/9 over his big league career, far too high for him to be a consistent fantasy producer. He will almost certainly be in the rotation at some point and could even get the call up before Danny Salazar even though Salazar has far more upside for fantasy. Analysis: Steve Pimental
