2015 Fantasy Outlook
Yang is seen as one of the top pitchers in South Korea. He won the Dongwon Choi Award for the Korean Baseball Organization's top pitcher in 2014, after posting a 4.25 ERA and 165:77 K:BB in 171.1 innings. Yang attempted to move to MLB before the 2015 season through the posting system the KBO has with MLB. While Minnesota and Texas were interested bidders, his team, the Kia Tigers, rejected all bids as they didn't get enough money. It's likely Yang will try to move to MLB again before the 2016 season.
