Yankees are interested in Korean reliever Oh Seung-Hwan

Chung Sung-Jun

The Yankees are going to need some serious help in the bullpen if they want to continue having one of the best corps of relievers in MLB next season. David Robertson will likely take over as closer for Mariano Rivera, but the team needs someone who can replace Robertson in the eighth inning.

The Yankess have shown a renewed interest in the international market, especially toward players from Asia. They are expected to bid big on Misahiro Tanaka, have spoken with Scott Boras about Korean starter Yoon Suk-Min, and now have shown interest in Korean reliever Oh Seung-Hwan.

They have been scouting the 31-year-old reliever, a seven time All-Star in the Korean Baseball Organization. Seung-Hwan has spent nine years with the Samsung Lions and went 4–1 with a 1.74 ERA while saving 28 games in 2013. He throws a fastball between 94 and 96 mph and has a disappearing splitter. Many teams are expected to be interested in him as a late inning reliever and even closer. While Suk-Min is a free agent and able to sign with any team, Oh Seung-Hwan will need to be posted in order to come over to America.
