KBO (President Heo Heo-yeon) said on the 15th, “On the 14th (Tuesday)
we received a request from the Major League Baseball (MLB) secretariat to check the status of LG Go Woo-seok and Kiwoom Lee Jeong-hoo.
We have notified him that he is a member of our team,” he said.
In the case of Lee Jeong-hoo, he announced his advancement to the major league early on. 카지노사이트
Accordingly, he is receiving a lot of attention, including being named in the FA Power Rankings selected by multiple local U.S. media outlets.
According to the 2024 FA hitter power rankings of FOX Sports, a local U.S. media outlet, on the 8th, Lee Jeong-hoo was ranked 4th overall.
The media said, “If Lee Jeong-hoo had not had an ankle injury this season, news of him challenging the Major League would have received more attention,” and added
He is a player who has shown excellent results in Korea, and is evaluated as a more talented prospect than the San Diego Padres’ Kim Ha-seong.
He added, “There will be many teams who want to give Lee Jeong-hoo, who is only 25 years old, a chance.”
Like FOX Sports’ evaluation, many media outlets are leaving positive reviews about Lee Jung-hoo’s abilities and value.
Previously, on the 7th, MLB.com also classified Lee Jung-hoo 14th overall in its self-selected free agent power rankings, showing growing interest in Lee Jung-hoo.
MLB Trade Rumors also predicted the size of Lee Jung-hoo’s expected free agent contract.
MLB Trade Rumors predicted, “Lee Jung-hoo will sign a 5-year, $50 million contract.
In the FA power rankings selected by the media, Lee Jung-hoo ranked 15th overall.
‘The Athletic’ predicted $56 million (about 73.3 billion won) over four years, well over $50 million.
Best friend’ Kim Ha-seong signed a 4+1 year contract with San Diego for the 2021 season worth up to $39 million (approximately 51 billion won)
with a guaranteed amount of $28 million (approximately 36.6 billion won), and Lee Jung-hoo is expected to receive up to twice the amount. It seems likely that a deal will be signed.
Lee Jeong-hoo was unable to play in many games compared to previous years due to an injury in the middle of this season
but he left behind decent performances to the extent that the absence of injury was not visible.
He had a batting average of 0.318, 105 hits, 6 home runs, 45 RBIs, and 0.861 OPS in 86 games this season.
In particular, starting with his batting average last season, he won five batting crowns
including hits, RBI, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, and took the regular season MVP.
In addition, since entering the professional stage in 2017, he has achieved a career batting average of 0.340, 65 home runs, 515 RBIs, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.898 over 7 seasons.
Go Woo-seok is also a closing pitcher representing Korea. Go Woo-seok made 139 saves over a total of 7 seasons in the league, and this season he also recorded 3 wins, 8 losses, and 15 saves in 44 games.
He became the league’s save king with 44 saves last season, and was selected for the 2019 Premier 12, 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and this year’s WBC and Hangzhou Asian Games national teams.
However, in order for Go Woo-seok to go overseas, he needs permission from the LG club.
In the case of Lee Jeong-hoo, Kiwoom allowed Lee Jeong-hoo to post before the start of this season, so it is possible for him to advance to the major leagues.
Go Woo-seok’s will is also strong.
In an interview during the season, he expressed his desire to advance to the major leagues, saying, “As a player, you cannot have the goal of advancing to the major leagues,” and “It has always been my dream since I was young.”
Also, Lee Jeong-hoo and Go Woo-seok are brother-in-law and brother-in-law.
Go Woo-seok married Lee Jung-hoo’s younger sister early this year and joined the family.
It remains to be seen whether the two players will be able to advance to the major leagues together.
