Orioles Orioles talk about ban with MLB and KBO

The KBO reportedly wants an explanation for why it had not been informed discussions were taking place between the Orioles and Kim, and a League source confirmed MLB is presently looking into the matter to determine a proper course of action. Although there is nothing preventing foreign teams from signing Korean amateurs, the process requires teams to make inquiries to the KBO first. Players from outside the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico are permitted to sign with Major League teams at age 16, but the KBA claims Kim was in violation of its rules by being in contact with a team prior to his final year of high school. “MLB will let us know once they have decided upon a proper measure of response,” Michael Park, the KBO’s operations manager, told Reuters on Tuesday. “Poaching our players like this makes it difficult for [South Korea] to keep its scouting rules tight and to develop our youth sports programs. “We only have 50 high school teams, and taking promising players away like this makes it very hard for Korean baseball to stay strong.”
