A large salary increase awaits Kiwoom An Woo-jin, who fully exploded his potential through last season.
Last year, Woojin Ahn participated in 30 games and earned 15 wins, 8 losses, an ERA of 2.11, and 224 strikeouts, winning the Golden Glove in the pitcher category.
Ahn Woo-jin, who has surpassed the best pitchers in the country and is now the best in the country, can now look at a sharp increase in his salary even when renewing his contract.
It is also nice to see that his team, Kiwoom, gives a clear reward to an outstanding player.
From the past, the Heroes club used to strongly stimulate motivation by offering jaw-dropping salary increases to players who had achieved certain results.
The beginning is Son Seung-rak in 2011. In 2010, when Son Seung-rak returned from military service, he took on the role of firefighter for the team, recording 2 wins, 3 losses, 26 saves, and an average ERA of 2.56, emerging as the league’s leading finisher. After the season, the club raised the annual salary from 35 million won to 130 million won, a 271.4% increase, and Son Seung-rak earned 151 more saves for the team over the next five years before transferring as a free agent.
Two years later, Park Byeong-ho and Seo Geon-chang, who belatedly reached their potential, were the main characters. In particular, Park Byung-ho became the home run king with 31 homers in 2012, his first full-time season after transfer, and his annual salary rose 254.8% from 62 million won to 220 million won, walking the path of a full-fledged limited class. 메이저사이트
Franchise stars Kim Ha-seong and Lee Jung-hoo, who represented the Heroes club, cannot be left out. In 2015, the second year of his debut, Kim Ha-seong recorded a 300% annual salary increase by brilliantly filling the shortstop position that Kang Jung-ho missed, and Lee Jung-hoo, who won the Rookie of the Year two years later, moved from the lowest annual salary to the hundreds of millions of dollars (307.4%) in his second year as a pro. Climb up and stand tall at the top right now.
Ahn Woo-jin received a considerable salary of 150 million won last season. If you receive a 300% increase as a gift like Lee Jung-hoo and Kim Ha-seong, you can receive 450 million won, an increase of 300 million won at once.
Going further here, it is also possible to consider expanding the range to the club’s highest ever increase. The player who gave the highest salary increase to the Heroes club was Lee Taek-geun, who returned to the team in 2012, and received 700 million won (259.3% increase) from 270 million won to 430 million won as a free agency contract.
Looking at the history of the Heroes club, which shoots clearly when shooting, expectations are already growing as to what level An Woo-jin’s annual salary will be this season.
