Edman will be the first player ever to represent the Soth Korean team to not be born in the country. Edman gains his eligibility to play for the national team based on his Korean heritage on his mother's side.

Edman enjoyed a really solid 2022 season, slashing .265/.324/.400 in 153 games for the Red Birds. He also played three different infield positions and some outfield, so he has a ton of versatility on the defensive side as well.

He will be a fantastic addition to the Korean team that will surely feature some other MLB talent.
