Lee Jung-hoo (24, Kiwoom Heroes) announced his overseas expansion after the 2023 season.
Lee Jung-hoo visited the club’s office located in Gocheok Sky Dome on the 19th and discussed with Kiwoom about overseas expansion. At this meeting, Lee Jung-hoo announced that he would challenge the major leagues after the 2023 season. An official from the club said, “We respect the player’s willingness to challenge. Since it has been closed, we will have internal discussions as soon as the work resumes.”
In the end, Lee Jung-hoo chose the posting system (private bidding method). Lee Jung-hoo, who graduated from Whimoon High School, joined Nexen (currently Kiwoom) as the first nomination in 2017. Lee Jung-hoo, who has been established as a starting player since his rookie days, will fill the 7-year qualification for overseas advancement if he plays until 2023. If he played one more season here in the KBO league, he would qualify as a free agent, but Lee Jung-hoo chose to take on the challenge even one year sooner. 메이저사이트
So the 2023 season has become more important. Lee Jung-hoo has built a successful career so far. Next year, ahead of overseas expansion, every game can be a showcase. It is important to leave good grades in order to receive better treatment.
When Lee Jung-hoo was asked about overseas expansion, he said, “I think something I vaguely thought could happen next year. To do that, I have to do better next season. It’s off-season, so I can only imagine good things, but I have to deal with things right in front of me.” I want to deliver good news by preparing well since spring camp.”
Proving international competitiveness at the World Baseball Classic (WBC) has also become an essential task. It is virtually confirmed that Lee Jung-hoo will wear the Taegeuk mark and participate in the WBC. If he proves his worth in this tournament, where world-class players participate, he can attract more club attention.
Lee Jung-hoo hardened his heart. He said the club would also respect the will of his players. Now, every match is a showcase. I am curious about the future of Lee Jung-hoo after a year.
