Luke Scott signs with SK Wyverns in Korea

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The 35-year old heads to Korea after drawing preliminary interest from some major league clubs.

The SK Wyverns of Korea have agreed to terms on a contract with longtime major leaguer Luke Scott, according to a source familiar with the situation. Reports out of Korea indicate that Scott's contract is for one year.

Scott, 35, hit .241 with 9 HR and 40 RBI in 91 games with the Rays last season, and drew preliminary interest from a few major league clubs before deciding to head to Asia. He is the latest on a growing list of American-born players to head to Korea, and joins former major leaguers Ross Wolf and Jo-Jo Reyes on the Wyverns' roster.

For his career, Scott is a lifetime .258 hitter with 135 HR and 436 RBI in nine major league seasons with the Astros (2005-2007), Orioles (2008-2011), Rays (2012-2013). He is the first player to hit more than 100 HR in either the minors or majors to play in Korea, and is one of the highest-profile American players to head to Korea in recent years.
