SEOUL, July 8 (Yonhap) - South Korean baseball club LG Twins said Friday they've signed former major league pitcher David Huff.

The struggling Korea Baseball Organization (KOB) club signed the left-hander to a US$550,000 deal for the rest of the season. He replaces Scott Copeland, who was waived after going 2-3 with a 5.54 ERA in 13 starts in his first KBO season.

The Twins have lost four straight games to fall to seventh place in the 10-team league at 32-41-1 (wins-losses-ties).

Huff began the season with the Kansas City Royals but was released on May 16. The Los Angeles Angels signed him as a free agent the next day, and Huff made two starts. He lost both of them while giving up seven earned runs in 5 1/3 innings for an 11.81 ERA.

Huff made 18 appearances in Triple-A for two different clubs, going 2-3 with a 5.68 ERA.
