After playing for seven teams in parts of eight seasons in the majors Dana Eveland is heading to Korea.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the 29-year-old left-hander has signed a one-year, $675,000 deal with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korea Baseball Organization and could earn up to $900,000 in total with incentives.

Eveland spent this year with the Orioles, making two starts and a dozen relief appearances, and has a 5.46 ERA in 393 career innings.

Video: Troy Tulowitzki plays along with a photographer who thought he was a pitcher

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
