Detroit Tigers Links: Adam Wilk sold to Korea & Orioles sign Daniel Scherelth

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Adam Wilk will pitch in Korea next season, Dave Dombrowski is one of baseball's sexiest GM's (per Yahoo), and the Baltimore Orioles sign Daniel Schlereth. These stories and more in today's Morning Prowl.

Adam Wilk looks forward to pitching in Korea, is open to return to Detroit Tigers in future
MLive, Chris Iott
Wilk will form a one-two punch with Charlie Shrek -- whom I have never heard of but has an awesome name -- for the NC Dinos (also an awesome name) next season.

San Francisco Giants top Buster Olney's first offseason power rankings
ESPN Insider, Buster Olney
Without giving too much away for those without a subscription, Olney has the Tigers third overall and first in the AL in what is a very NL-dominant board -- five of the top seven teams are from the National League.

Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski on 'sexy' rankings: 'I am trying to trade up'
The Detroit News, Tony Paul
Hey, it's not like he has much else to do right now with the roster just about set for 2013.

Peralta Lacks Range But Protects His Territory
Tiger Tales, Lee Panas
Lee points out that Peralta was better than Brendan Ryan on plays within the shortstop zone last season. Outside the zone? Not so much.

Orioles sign Ishikawa, Schlereth, and Braddock to minor-league deals
Camden Chat
Sounds about right.

"Schlereth, 27, is a former first-round pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks, and has pitched in relief in 94 big league games with an ERA+ of 94. He spent the last three years in the Tigers' system, where he walked everyone in sight."

More On The Jason Vargas/Kendrys Morales Trade
Lookout Landing, Jeff Sullivan
Sullivan is a little more lukewarm on the deal, but I think this was a great move for the Mariners. Morales can hit and Vargas was really going to struggle with the smaller dimensions at Safeco Field next season.

Ichiro Officially Back with the Yankees
Pinstriped Bible, Andrew Mearns

"It's a risk since he had not played like that since his last All-Star season of 2010, but unfortunately, there simply are not many starting options in the outfield at the moment and the Yankees have a Nick Swisher-shaped hole in right field."

Free-agent matchmaker: A.J. Pierzynski
Baseball Nation, Grant Brisbee
Whether he's in the AL Central next season or not, Pierzynski won't be hitting .278/.326/.501 again next year.
