BALTIMORE (AP) — South Korean outfielder Hyun-soo Kim has agreed to a $7 million, two-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles, pending a successful physical.

The 27-year-old hit .318 with 142 homers and 771 RBIs in nine-plus seasons with the Doosan Bears in South Korea.

Baltimore has been looking for a corner outfielder and a left-handed hitter with a high on-base percentage.

Last season, Kim batted .326 with a .438 on-base percentage, a career-high 28 home runs and 128 RBIs. He also had 101 walks and 63 strikeouts.
