SEOUL, Dec. 23 (Yonhap) -- South Korean baseball club LG Twins announced Tuesday they've signed former major league infielder Jack Hannahan.

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) club signed the 34-year-old for US$1 million. The Twins have now filled up their foreign player quota for next year, with pitchers Henry Sosa and Lucas Harrell also in the fold.

The KBO clubs can have three players from overseas and at least one of them must be a position player.

Hannahan, who bats left and throws right, made his big league debut with the Detroit Tigers in 2006 and went on to play for four more clubs until 2014.

In 2011 and 2012, Hannahan was teammates with the South Korean outfielder Choo Shin-soo with the Cleveland Indians.

In 614 major league games, Hannahan batted .231 with 29 home runs and 175 RBIs.
