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
