According to the Korean Times, the outfielder called...

Sunday Notes: The Meaning of Luke Scott, Tigers, Dodgers-Giants

Luke Scott will head to Japan for the 2014 season. Scott, 35, spent the 2013 season with the Tampa Bay Rays hitting .241/.326/.415 in 253 at-bats with nine home runs and 40 RBI.
