Kim Ha-seong of the Kiwoom Heroes is expected to wear the San Diego Padres' jersey in the U.S.
Infielder Kim "has agreed to a deal" with the Padres, MLB.com said Monday.
The Padres have "not yet confirmed the move, which is pending a physical, and the terms of the deal are not yet known," it added.
Details of the agreement remain unknown, but local news outlet the San Diego Union-Tribune expected that Kim will sign a four-year, US$25-million contract.
Kim made his professional debut with the Heroes in 2014.
Former pitcher Park Chan-ho, who played for the Padres in 2015, currently works as a special adviser to the team.
