DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)is there any word on Suk-min Yook, or when he is expected to make the Orioles MLB team?
(Kevin from PA)
Suk-min Yoon has given up 12 runs in six innings in Triple-A so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for him right now. They're not going to pull Ubaldo out of the rotation now anyway, so unless they're going to ditch Gonzalez (which I guess they could do, but seems hasty) there's no space for Yoon in Baltimore anyway. (Matthew Kory)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is a realistic projection for Suk-min Yoon this season for the Orioles? Is he a starter or reliever in your opinion?
(Rob from Baltimore)
I don't know a whole lot about him beyond the Kyle Lohse comparison floating around. I guess I should ask around, but my understanding is he's a starter. (R.J. Anderson)
