SF senior Hwang Jae-gyun “The Giants made the right choice”… Lee Jung-hoo’s contract is well received

According to foreign media including MLB.com , Lee signed a six-year contract worth a total of 113 million U.S. dollars with San Francisco. According to the New York Post, an opt-out clause was inserted four years later.

Upon hearing the news of Lee’s contract, Hwang expressed his delight through SNS. “Giants made the right choice,” Hwang said, welcoming Lee’s move to MLB.

Hwang advanced to San Francisco prior to Lee Jung-hoo. In January 2017, Hwang signed a split contract with San Francisco for up to $3.1 million per year. 메이저 토토사이트

Although he performed well in the exhibition game, he started the season in the minor leagues due to position problems. Hwang Jae-kyun made a strong commitment to opt out if he could not be called up to MLB at the end of June, and he was called up as of the 28th and took the Major League stage.

Hwang showed his best performance in his MLB debut game. He grounded out to the third base in his first at-bat, but hit his first RBI single in his second at-bat. He then reported a solo home run in his third at-bat, becoming the first Korean Major Leaguer to post a home run in his debut game. On the day, Hwang became a trainee with four at-bats for one hit, one homer, two RBIs and one run scored.

However, the Major League has faced a high wall. Hwang played 18 games in the Major League, making eight hits, one homer, two runs scored, and five RBIs in his career as a backup player, posting a batting average of 0.154 and 0.228 with a slugging percentage of 0.231.

On Sept. 1, Hwang was excluded from San Francisco’s 40-man roster and was officially designated as a designated player. He returned to the KBO League after signing a four-year, 8.8 billion-dollar contract with the KT Wiz.

Now, Lee Jung-hoo will follow Hwang Jae-gyun on the big league stage. “Lee had an explosive slash line with a 0.340 on-base percentage of 0.407 and a 0.491 slugging percentage in all seasons in the KBO League,” MLB.COM said. “He is considered an above-average defender for center field players.”

Lee has become the seventh player to advance to the MLB through the posting system. If Choi Hyang-nam (then Lotte Giants) who signed a minor league contract is excluded, he will become the sixth player to advance to the big league.
