Is Jung looking for an agent? Or does he have one already?

Angels' scouting director, Eddie Bane, said the Angels were thrilled with the signing of Jung. Bane said Jung is the first Korean prospect to sign with a major league team out of high school in 5 years.

Jung will join the Angels in the fall during the fall instructional league, as the Angels are out of international visas.

Also, Bane said:
They just snapped away as if it was Halle Berry or something, I don't think we had that big a press conference when we signed Vlad.

About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
