Yoon is a right-handed Korean pitcher who may be posted, in which case he could find himself on an MLB team. Yoon first emerged as a dominant pitching ace in Korea in 2008, when he was 14-5 with a 2.33 ERA. In 2009 and 2010, he had two seasons in which he found himself constantly switching between being his teams closer and being in the starting rotation. He started 29 games out of 50 appearances and posted an ERA of 3.63.
This past season Yoon re-emerged as the ace of the Kia Tigers and returned to form, posting a 17-5 record with a 2.45 ERA and 178 K's in over 172 innings. He also had some fantastic performances over the season, including three different occasions of throwing a complete game shutout.
Along with many other international pitchers, a concern with Yoon is his ability to log a good amount of innings if he enters the big leagues. The last time he had over 25 starts was in 2007, and the 172.1 innings he logged in 2011 were a career best. Another concern is his health. Not only would more innings put more strain on him, but he has had a history of nagging shoulder injuries, including ones that have sidelined him for a month or more and in one case in 2009, an injury that shut him down for the season.
Yoon has great potential and has a lot to offer, but teams will have to be cautious about the workload they give him to avoid any further injuries.
