Dana Eveland’s itinerant career is taking yet another interesting turn. It’s hard to believe that Eveland is not yet 30, but he’s already played with seven different major league clubs over the past nine seasons.

Eveland has an agreement to pitch with the Hanwha Eagles in Korea.

“Add another chapter to my crazy career,” Eveland tweeted on Sunday.

Though he’s pitched for nine seasons in the majors, Eveland has barely three years of service time. He’s never lasted a full season in the majors.

With the Orioles last season, Eveland pitched in 14 games, started twice. He had an 0-1 record with a 4.73 ERA. The left-hander was designated for assignment three times, once in spring training, and twice in July, never pitching for the Orioles after mid-July.

It’s not unheard of for players to return to the majors after pitching in Korea. It’s hard playing there for Americans because of the language and cultural issues. Eveland knows what he wants to do in his down time.

“Who know anything about golf in Korea? Am I gonna be able to play out there?” he tweeted.

Actually, Koreans are mad about golf. He’ll probably have a great time.
