Burning $100 million for ‘KBO’s 30% hitters’? Lee Jung-hoo’s ransom, how did it become ‘double’ in a month

New York Post reporter John Heyman said on SNS on the 13th (Korea time) that Lee Jung-hoo signed a six-year $113 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. When the Major League Baseball entered the off-season in November, major U.S. media predicted that Lee Jung-hoo would sign a contract worth $10 million (about 13 billion won) annually.

ESPN assessed Lee Jung-hoo at 63 million dollars for five years, 50 million dollars for Major League Trade Rumors (MTR) for five years, and 56 million dollars for four years for The Athletic. However, The Athletic raised Lee Jung-hoo’s ransom to 92.5 million dollars for five years on the 11th. 안전한 파워볼사이트

The Athletic said, “Lee was a low-ranking player in the early FA expectations. I have never seen him in person. However, it has been clearly revealed in the industry that Lee can be the best target for any team that needs a center fielder position.”

Lee has gained additional points as he is a full-time center fielder who is certain to take charge of the Diamondbacks’ center line, not as a corner outfielder. In addition, there was no center fielder in the FA market except for Cody Bellinger. Besides San Francisco, the New York Mets and San Diego Padres have also joined the race to recruit Lee.

There is no big doubt about Lee Jung-hoo’s defense and running ability. It seems that he has also admitted to the ability to hit the trailblazing eye. However, the question mark that remains is the slugging power. There was a question mark on the productivity of home runs, but there is a part to believe that he called more than $100 million.

During the Winter Meetings, San Francisco’s general manager Pete Putilla said, “Many scouts are looking into what (Lee) will suffer and what needs to be adjusted. Obviously, it’s a jump. But I think some players can do it.”
