2017

2016

Kim, who turned 28 in January, signed a two-year, $7 million deal with the Orioles a team in desperate need of outfield help. In 141 games in the Korean Baseball Organization last year, Kim hit 28 homers and notched 128 RBI while also getting on base at a .438 clip. Those numbers made him a superstar in the KBO, but he is unlikely to be that kind of impact player stateside. That said, anyone with Kims approach (more walks than strikeouts in Korea) and above average raw power should be able to carve out a semi-regular role on a team like Baltimore. The Os have Nolan Reimold, Dariel Alvarez, L.J. Hoes and Henry Urrutia hanging around as outfield options on either side of Adam Jones, and there is no reason to think Kim cannot emerge from that underwhelming collection of spare parts as the everyday option in left field. There is not much hype around Kim, but he has a clearer path to playing time than Byung-ho Park in Minnesota.
