UPDATE (12:30 p.m. on Saturday) -- Giants GM Brian Sabean confirmed on a conference call that the Giants did not place a bid on Jung-Ho Kang.
Jung-Ho Kang will soon be negotiating with an MLB team, but it's unclear -- at this point -- which team will get the honor.
The Nexen Heroes of the KBO on Saturday accepted a bid of $5 million for their superstar shortstop after he was posted earlier in the week, according to a Yonhap News Agency report.
It is unknown which MLB team offered the winning bid, but it's not the San Diego Padres (CBS Sports), New York Mets (New York Post), Baltimore Orioles (Baltimore Sun), New York Yankees (ESPN), Toronto Blue Jays (team broadcaster Mike Wilner), or Los Angeles Dodgers (LA Times).
The winner will have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Kang. If an agreement is not reached, he will return to the KBO. The Heroes will keep the $5 million bid and Kang would be prohibited from posting again until Nov. 1, 2015.
Kang reportedly made about $380,000 in 2014 in the KBO and would likely be due for a substantial raise should he reach an agreement.
Agent Alan Nero is seeking $20 million over four years, $16.6 million for three years or $12 million for two years, according to a Yonhap News Agency report.
Kang, 27, hit .354 with 39 home runs and 115 RBI last season.
