Yoon Suk-min

Team: Korea
Position: RHP
Bats: Right. Throws: Right

We may see Yoon in the majors sometime in the not-so-distant future (although not, apparently, this season). He has had Scott Boras as his agent for several years now; and at 26 years old, he can be an international free agent. When he takes the mound in the WBC, expect to see three quality pitches that include a fastball in the low-to-mid 90s along with an effective changeup and a hard slider. And don't expect to see any international jitters. Four years ago in the 2009 WBC, Yoon appeared in four games, starting twice, and put together a 2-0 record with two holds and a 1.13 ERA as Korea finished second to Japan.
