Veteran outfielder/1B/DH Luke Scott will play next season for the SK Wyverns, a KBO team located in Incheon, South Korea, reports Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

Scott, age 35, is coming off a 2013 season in which he batted .241/.326/.415 (108 OPS+) in 91 games for the Rays. For his career, Scott owns an OPS+ of 117 and has hit 135 home runs across parts of nine major-league seasons. From 2008-10, he hit at least 23 homers per season for the Orioles.

Scott has battled significant shoulder, back and leg problems in recent years. While he can still hit right-handed pitching, his durability is very much in question at this stage of his career.
