Another option to solve the Angels' severe pitching problems without costing a draft pick has materialized. Oh Seung-hwan, closer for the back-to-back-to-back Korea Series Champion Samsung Lions has received permission to sign abroad one year earlier than he would have been allowed under the KBO's free agency rules. He's 31, so doesn't really have youth on his side, but has a career 1.69 ERA/0.84 WHIP with 277 saves and 625 strikeouts. The Dodgers and Yankees are supposedly interested and given the Angels' arguably greater needs and similar cash flow, I would be very surprised if they aren't looking as well. Things could also get interesting due to differences in KBO's posting agreements with MLB and NPB, which the article details.
