Ricoh Sports Agency, Jang Hyun-seok’s management company, announced on the 1st that “Jang Hyun-seok decided to challenge the Major League without submitting an application for the KBO draft after a long thought.”
Jang Hyun-seok said through a management company, “I’m sorry to have kept many people waiting in the process of deciding their future.” It was very difficult to decide because both the KBO League and the Major League were dream stages. “However, I decided to challenge the Major League because I wanted to challenge the world’s best stage,” he said.
As a result, Jang Hyun-seok plans to continue negotiations with major league clubs without submitting an application for the KBO League 2024 rookie draft. 온라인카지노
Jang Hyun-seok, a right-hander, boasts a tall height of 1m 90kg and a solid physicality. On top of that, he is a power-type pitcher who boasts the highest speed in the mid-150km range. Jang Hyun-seok, who also sprayed 155km of fastball in the Blue Dragon Flag, which recently ended, is considered a pitcher with natural physicality, strength, strong shoulders, control and game management skills.
Jang Hyun-seok, who has consistently received attention from the Major League, has been agonizing over joining the KBO League club and entering the United States. In order to join the KBO League, you must submit an application for participation in the 2024 Rookie Draft by August 15. If Jang Hyun-seok goes out in the KBO League rookie draft, he was likely to be the first overall pick. The KBO League Rookie Draft, which is being carried out as a full draft, was held by the Hanwha Eagles with the first overall pick this year. If Hanwha nominated Jang Hyun-seok, it could have all three “Big Three” following Moon Dong-ju and Kim Seo-hyun.
Unfortunately, however, Hanwha’s dream fell through. Jang Hyun-seok has yet to submit an application and has been contemplating his future. Jang Hyun-seok, who replied, “I will make a final decision after the Blue Dragon Flag,” decided to take the lead with a major league challenge. Contracts with major league clubs are likely to be announced early next year like Shim Joon-seok (Pittsburgh).
