Hello and happy Wednesday.

It looks like Andrew Suárez’s time with the San Francisco Giants may be coming to an end. According to Daniel Kim — who covers the KBO for ESPN — Suárez is nearing a deal with the LG Twins, a KBO team. It seems as though he’ll be packing his bags and heading for Korea.

The Twins and Giants would need to work out a buyout of sorts, because Suárez is currently still under contract with San Francisco.

It doesn’t seem like the current regime is super high on Suárez, so perhaps a buyout shouldn’t be surprising. Still, he’s appeared in each of the last three seasons for the Giants, and is currently on the 40-man roster.

The Giants drafted Suárez in the second round of the 2015 MLB Draft. In 56 appearances — including 31 starts — he’s had a 4.66 ERA and a 4.60 FIP. He has 160 strikeouts to 65 walks in 202.2 innings.
