SEOUL, South Korea -- South Korean starting pitcher Chan Ho Park has reached an oral agreement on a one-year deal with the New York Mets, his management company said on Friday.
The deal would pay Park a base salary of $3 million, his Team 61 management company said, adding that the right-hander would sign a contract once he passed a physical examination.
Park was part of the San Diego Padres pitching rotation last season, when he compiled a 7-7 record and a 4.81 ERA.
The 33-year-old broke into the major leagues with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1994 and has also pitched with the Texas Rangers. He has a career record of 113-87, but has suffered a number of injuries over the past few seasons.
