    Padres Post High Bid For Kwang-Hyun Kim

    The Padres have posted the highest bid for Korean lefty Kwang-Hyun Kim, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, at $2MM. He notes that Kimís team, SK Wyverns, might not accept since they were reportedly seeking $10MM.

    The 26-year-old Kim is considered the countryís ace, wrote C.J. Nitkowski for Just A Bit Outside. However, Nitkowski feels Kim might be best-suited bullpen work in MLB. In a new article, Nitkowski writes that he expects intense conversations between Kim and SK, with the pitcher pushing hard to be let go.

    SK Wyverns Accept Padresí Bid For Kwang-Hyun Kim
    By Tim Dierkes and Steve Adams [November 11, 2014 at 11:51pm CST]
    11:51pm: The Wyverns will accept the Padresí bid for Kim, who now has a 30-day window to negotiate a contract with the Padres, according to a report from Naver Sports (Korean link; hat tip to Sung-Min Kim on Twitter). Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net tweets that Kim is being represented by veteran MLB agent Melvin Roman.

    The Yonhap News Agency has a full English report on Kimís posting, noting that he features a fastball which sits around 93 mph and a sharp slider. However, Kim relies primarily on those two pitches and would like to develop a more effective changeup if he jumps to the Majors. Kim thanked the Wyverns for the opportunity and issued the following statement:

    ďNow that Iíve been given a chance to try to reach the majors, which has been my lifelong dream, Iíll try to make the best of the situation and prove myself on the biggest stage. I will go back to the drawing board and prepare the best I can.Ē

    Sounds like this could be a precursor to a trade or two since San Diego has a ton of depth in that starting rotation.
