최근 박찬호 관련 몇가지 소식이 들려오고 있다. 

지난달 말부터 아래와 같이 컵스와 레이스가 관심 있다는 기사는 보도되기 시작했고, 이 중 컵스와 박찬호 관련 기사는 몇번 더 나온 것 같다. 그 와중에 나온 샌프란시스코와 마이너 계약 얘기는 잘 못 전해진 듯하다.


최근 양키스에서도 관심을 갖고 있다는 기사가 나오면서 컵스, 레이스, 양키스 3군데로 압축되는 듯 보였으나 레이스가 박찬호 영입을 고려하지 않는다라는 기사가 나왔다. St. Petersburg Times의 Marc Topkin 라는 사람이 레이스는 현재 불펜진에 만족하고 있으며 오히려 FA 1루수인 Russell Branyan에 관심을 두고 있다고 전했다. 

조만간 박찬호가 2010 시즌을 어디서 보낼지 결정되겠지만, 아무래도 컵스가 유력해 보인다.

Chan Ho Park - S - PHI - Feb. 18 - 3:13 pm et

Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times reports that the Rays are not currently considering right-hander Chan Ho Park. Park has been connected to the Rays in recent days, as well as the Cubs and Yankees, but according to Topkin, the club is comfortable with their bullpen as-is. Topkin also notes that the Rays remain in the running for free agent first baseman Russell Branyan, who is also reportedly considering a contract from the Indians. Feb. 18 - 3:13 pm et

According to Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman, 36-year old Korean-born right-hander, Chan Ho Park, could be a free agent pitching possibility for the Cubs, Rays, and, most importantly (for the purposes of this blog), the Yankees.

Park was once a pretty good, albeit wild, starter for the Dodgers from 1997-2001, though he was famously bad for the Rangers once he made the move to the American League in 2002. After a dreadful stint in Texas, Park was traded to the Padres in 2005, but he was hindered by intestinal bleeding brought on by Meckels diverticulum and, as a result, his year and a half stay in San Diego was a disappointment. He then split minor-league time with the Mets and Astros in 2007 only to return to the Dodgers in 2008, where he posted a 2.85 FIP as a starter in 5 games and a 4.91 FIP as a reliever over 70 1/3 innings. The Phillies, in search of pitching depth, then signed Park for $2.5 million for 2009, where he was initially used a starter, however, his numbers in 7 starts – 5.59 FIP, 5.67 K/9, 4.95 BB/9 – were terrible, forcing the club to try him as a reliever. In the bullpen, Park’s fastball saw a big uptick in velocity – 92.2 mph versus 89.8 mph while in the rotation – and he pitched exceptionally well – 2.10 FIP, 9.36 K/9 over 50 innings – for a tattered Philadelphia bullpen. It is that performance that has some teams, including the Yankees (possibly), intrigued. 

It is difficult to evaluate what Park really is, though. Is he actually a good reliever? It is hard to tell, and his 50 good innings with Philly in ‘09 should not hold more weight than the 70 bad innings with LA in ‘08. His career splits as a starter and a reliever appear promising, but, even so those numbers don’t necessarily mean anything as they have been cobbled together at random over a 16-season career. Assuming Heyman’s tweet is legitimate, if the Yankees were to actually add Park, it would have to be at an extremely low price, since they have ample pitching depth and have already maxed out their offseason budget. If they have to spend any real money on him, it won’t happen. Park has said that he would like to pitch for the Yankees earlier this winter, though, which is something to keep in mind.

Chan Ho Park - S - PHI - Feb. 17 - 9:50 am et

Jon Heyman of SI.com expects the Cubs, Rays, and maybe the Yankees, to chase free agent reliever Chan Ho Park. 
Park is holding out for a major league contract and even turned down a one-year, $3 million offer from the Phillies earlier this winter. The 36-year-old righty had an ugly 7.29 ERA over seven starts in 2009, but he compiled a 2.52 ERA and a 52/16 K/BB ratio in 38 relief appearances. Feb. 17 - 9:50 am et
