Gillick Wasn’t Kidding

Pat Gillick has said in recent weeks that he planned to increase the Phillies scouting internationally and an MLB article today demonstrates his point.  The Phillies are among a number of teams looking at Yomiuri Giants slugger Seung-Yeop Lee:

Lee, who hit an Asian record 56 home runs in 2003 in his last year with
South Korea’s Samsung Lions, starred with Korea in the World Baseball
Classic and is drawing attention from Major League teams. Scouts from
the Philadelphia Phillies
and Pittsburgh Pirates have been to Tokyo
Dome recently to scout Lee, among others, and the Korean is expected to
make a jump to the Majors after this season.
