WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Shim was a high-profile signing for the Pirates out of South Korea.  He’s a big guy who throws four pitches — fastball, slider, curve and change.  As a high school pitcher he attracted a lot of attention because the fastball could hit triple digits.  Of the other three pitches, the slider is currently the best, but all have plus potential.
