07:35 AM ET 02.05 | Korean free agent pitcher Suk-Min Yoon's options may be on the rise. [Yoon] auditioned for Cubs and Rangers scouts on Tuesday in Arizona, and the client of agent Scott Boras continues to seek a multiyear Major League contract. The 27-year-old right-hander threw 30 pitches Tuesday, according to MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan. The Orioles already have made Yoon an offer, and the Twins and Giants are believed to be interested as well. Yoon pitched in the Kia Tigers' starting rotation before a shoulder injury cost him much of the first half of the past Korean Baseball Organization season. He pitched in 30 games, 19 as a reliever, and was 3-6 with a 4.00 ERA and seven saves. In 2011, he was 17-5 with a 2.45 ERA and 178 strikeouts in 172 1/3 innings and won his league's MVP honor.

Shoulder injuries are riskier - he may need to prove he can stay healthy for a year before any MLB club will put multiple years in front of him.
