Korean slugger and WBSC Premier12 champion Sung-bum Na set to transfer to MLB


The left-handed outfielder starred for the NC Dinos with a 34-home run regular season and posting a .458 batting average during the Korean Series

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) champions NC Dinos announced that they will make slugger NA Sung-bum available to Major League Baseball (MLB) clubs through the posting system.

Na excelled during the Korean Series against the Doosan Bears. The 31-year-old left-handed outfielder had a .458 batting average with one home run and six RBIs. He hit 34 home runs during the regular season. A pitcher in his college years, he is credited with a plus-arm.

Na appeared in all the Korean National Team's games at the inaugural WBSC Premier12 2015, despite still recovering from a season-ending knee injury. He started against Venezuela (in center field) and Mexico (in right field) during group play and entered as a pinch-hitter in every other game, including the final against the United States that gave Korea the first-ever Premier12 title.

He also represented Korea at the World University Championship 2010 and the WBSC (IBAF) Baseball World Cup 2011
