Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com is reporting the San Francisco Giants have an arrangement to sell Brett Pill's contract to a Korean Club.
Pill could be heading to the Kia Tigers of the Korean Professional League, but Baggarly mentions a deal hasn't been finalized as both parties have yet to agree on a salary. A source told Baggarly that Pill has other interest from clubs in Japan and Korea.
Pill batted .233 with the Giants during his three years, smacking 56 hits, nine home runs and 32 RBI's in 111 games. He recorded a .270 on-base percentage and .404 slugging percentage totaling a .683 OPS. The right-hander made his major league debut on September 6, 2011 and became the first Giants player since Will Clark to homer in his first big league at-bat.
The Giants will receive cash in the sum of $500,000 and cleared a roster spot on the 40-man roster for new signee Michael Morse.
