MLB News: Machado and Bourne have surgery, Rangers re-sign Frasor, Suk-Min Yoon coming to America

Chung Sung-Jun

There are plenty of things going on around baseball as teams start on their offseason plans.

International

Korean star pitcher Suk-Min Yoon will reportedly be trying out for MLB teams this offseason. He was originally supposed to come over to America for the 2012 season, but ultimately decided to stay in Korea for another year. The 2013 season turned out to be unkind to the 27-year-old, as he put together a 4.00 ERA in only 87.3 innings after two seasons of 150+ innings. He is a free agent in Korea so he would not have to go through the posting system.

Cleveland Indians

The Indians have announced that Michael Bourn had minor hamstring surgery and he will be able to begin his normal offseason program in four to six weeks. In the first season if his five year, $60 million contract, Bourn hit .263/.316/.360 with only 23 stolen bases, his lowest since becoming a full time player in 2009. While the surgery won't hold him back, no surgery is really minor, especially when it involves a player's best weapons. The Indians will hope he can turn it around in 2014, but they must be disappointed in his return so far.

Miami Marlins

The Marlins have hired Brett Butler as their new third base and outfield coach as well as Frank Menechino as their new hitting coach.

Baltimore Orioles

Manny Machado will have surgery to repair the medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee. The Orioles were hoping he could simply rehab it, but surgery was agreed to be the best longterm option for his health. He will need four to six months of rehabilitation, so he'll be able to return early on into the 2014 season.

Texas Rangers

The Rangers have re-signed Jason Frasor to an incentive-laden one-year $1.5 million deal. Closer Joe Nathan can void the club option he has in his contract, so Texas is likely consolidating their assets to prepare for what happens next.

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies have agreed to a new three-year extension with manager Walt Weiss after finishing his first season as a manager.

The Rockies have revealed their plans to renovate Coors Field by, essentially, taking out seats in right field that are normally empty to install a party deck equipped with a giant bar that serves 52 different types of beer on tap.
