FA outfielder Lee Myeong-gi (36) found a new nest after twists and turns. Wear a Hanwha Eagles uniform with a sign and trade.
On the 14th, the NC Dinos sent outfielder Lee Myung-gi and catcher Lee Jae-yong, who declared free agent (FA) qualifications, to Hanwha, and agreed to a trade with Hanwha infielder Cho Hyun-jin for the 7th round of the 2024 rookie draft (61st overall). .
Prior to the trade, NC signed a free agent contract with Lee Myung-gi for a contract period of one year and up to 100 million won (annual salary of 50 million won and an option of 50 million won). This contract will be succeeded by Hanwha.
The guarantee amount excluding incentives is only 50 million won. That’s the minimum salary level. A whopping 125 million won was cut from last year’s annual salary of 175 million won.
It had to be.
A pronoun of sophistication with a career batting average of 0.307.
He’s on the older side, but he’s still optimistic that there will be a team that can reach out to him given it’s a C grade. But things went oddly.
The market rebound was cold. He struggled with Kwon Hee-dong until he passed the year, unable to find his team. Eventually, the field training started, but there was no team to call. He was helpless, but time passed.
When the season started, she was in danger of being lost. 36 years old is not a small age. Mia could have meant retirement soon.
At the edge of the cliff, Hanwha held out its hand. I wore the Hanwha uniform with the feeling of Baek Ui-jong.
Regarding the trade, coach Carlos Subero added, “Lee Myung-ki was also a player who impressed me as NC’s second hitter, but the joining of these two players will strengthen our internal competition and help us develop into a better team.” . “In the meantime, we have received the most young players in the league, but now it is time to prepare them to a competitive level in the league,” he said. It will happen,” he added.
Lee Myung-gi, who has been faithfully practicing his personal training all winter, is still competitive in terms of batting. He is an experienced 3rd hitter who has gone through all sorts of battles. Young Hanwha players cannot match his ability to cope with situations overflowing with sense. If Lee Myung-gi returns as a 300% hitter, Hanwha will be able to build an experienced and solid outfield lineup leading to ‘Lee Myung-gi – O’Grady – Chae Eun-seong’. Young outfielders who gained experience last year can buy time to grow.
After being released from Hanwha in 2021, Lee Myung-gi transferred to Kiwoom and is aiming at the path of Lee Yong-gyu (38), who wrote a success story. In 2021, the first year of his transfer to Kiwoom, Lee Yong-gyu played a role as a chance maker by scoring 88 points with a batting average of 0.296 and an on-base percentage of 0.392. His annual salary also increased from 100 million won to 400 million won, restoring his honor along with the ransom during his free agent days.
If Lee Myeong-gi also recovers his honor as a 30% hitter this season, it is possible to raise the ransom next season. This is the reason why we should pay attention to the bottom challenge of a veteran player who needs to restore his honor rather than money. 메이저사이트
Lee Myung-gi’s presence is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of Hanwha’s young outfielders. It helps a lot just by running and watching and learning together.
Lee Myung-gi is scheduled to join the Futures spring camp in Kochi, Japan, along with Lee Jae-yong, who transferred together soon.
