The former World Baseball Classic MVP in 2009 is 27 years old, and just hired Scott Boras as his agent. Since there is no posting fee, he will be more desirable to teams that miss out on Tanaka. His stats aren't as good as Tanaka (4.00 ERA w/ 7.8K/9 and 2.9BB/9), but has three plus pitches.

He also plays in the KBO which is much more of a hitter's league than NPB.  His ERA has risen, and his K's have dropped every year since his really good year in 2010.  I'm not sure what the deal is, some reports say his fastball was as low as 86 mph at times, but could climb above 93.   Could be a bullpen guy, but who knows?  He's never pitched anywhere close to 200 innings in a season.  I think he'd be an interesting guy to add if he comes at the right cost.

Carlos Villanueva, Suk-Min Yoon, and Chris Rusin could all be legit swing man options for the Cubs next year.
