News: The Baltimore Orioles have released right-hander Yoon.
Impact: The move enables the 28-year-old to return to South Korea, where he will reportedly sign with the Kia Tigers. Yoon signed a three-year contract with the Orioles in February 2013 for $5.575 million, but was removed from the 40-man roster last August. After going 4-8 with a 5.74 ERA for Triple-A Norfolk, Yoon was not invited to major league spring training this year.

News: The Orioles released Yoon Thursday and he signed with a Korean team, MASN Sports reports.
Impact: Yoon was one of the top Korean pitchers before signing a three-year deal with the Orioles last year. He was abominable at Triple-A, with a 5.74 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 23 appearances. With no chance at making the O's roster, Yoon wanted to return to South Korea, and the Orioles will save a nice chunk of change ($4.3 million) in the process.
