KIA Tigers’ Choi Hyung-woo (40), whose second free agent contract ended at the end of this season.
Choi will have to re-sign as a non-free agent with StubHub. Like other junior players, he will have to sit down with the club and discuss his salary for the next season.
He has put up solid numbers. In 121 games this season, Choi batted .332 (130-for-431) with 17 home runs, 81 RBIs, and an OPS of .887. It was his third season back in the triple digits, with a triple-digit on-base percentage and a low-teens slugging percentage. He ranked second in batting average, fourth in hits, second in home runs, and first in slugging percentage and on-base percentage among KIA hitters with regular plate appearances. It’s a grade-A performance on paper.
Choi Hyung-woo joined KIA as a free agent from the Samsung Lions before the 2017 season. After signing a four-year, 10 billion won contract, 카지노사이트넷 he got off to a great start by helping the team win the championship in his first year. The next three seasons were also fruitful, as he never missed a triple-digit batting average.
But his second free agency was a tearjerker. Choi, who signed a three-year, $4.7 billion deal, had his worst season in the first year of his contract, when an eye condition caused his batting average to drop into the low double digits. He struggled in the first half of last season and was labeled as an “aging curve,” but he showed signs of resurgence in the second half, returning to a triple-digit batting average this season. Despite his untimely injury at the end of the season, Choi’s performance as a big brother on and off the field was enough to earn him applause.
Kia still needs Choi Hyung-woo.
Na Sung-bum (34) is holding on, and Socrates Brito (31) is also up for re-signing. However, a cleanup trio of hitters is not readily available. Finding a replacement for Choi in terms of weight and productivity will be difficult, but KIA should at least allow time for a player with those qualities to develop.
It’s hard to say that the second free agent signing was a complete success for KIA and Choi. However, Choi’s resurgence this season has proven his worth, and with KIA unable to find a worthy replacement, the focus will inevitably shift to ‘companionship’.
Since this is a non-free agent re-signing, the situation is different from the previous two free agent signings. This year, the final season of his second free agency, Choi’s salary is 900 million won. All eyes will be on how this amount will be adjusted. 메이저 토토사이트 While Kia has to consider the salary cap, it’s hard to ignore the dedication Choi has shown to the team and the value he’s provided this season. The amount of service time that Choi has left to take with him must be taken into account.
We need to find a middle ground. What kind of terms will Kia offer Choi?
