LG Twins have a busy schedule

After winning their first Korean Series title in 29 years, the LG Twins have a busy schedule.

Following the championship celebration on the 17th, the team traveled to Beppu, Japan for recovery training on the 20th and 24th. After the Major League Baseball office inquired about Go Woo-seok’s background, the LG Twins accepted his request for posting with the permission of owner Koo Kwang-mo.

Despite the opening of the free agency market, LG general manager Cha Myung-seok has yet to set a table with any of the team’s free agents. Lim Chan-kyu, Ham Deok-ju, Kim Min-sung, and Oh Ji-hwan have filed for free agency. Oh signed a six-year, $12.4 billion multi-year contract in January. Starting pitcher Im Chan-kyu, bullpen Ham Deok-ju, and utility Kim Min-sung are all players the team needs.

So far, negotiations with the three players have been virtually stalled. Cha Myung-seok said, “We have a group report on the 28th. I’m busy preparing until then, so I’m afraid I won’t have time, so I asked their agents to do it. I said, “I’m sorry, but we’ll meet after the 28th to negotiate. They said it was okay, so we’re planning to meet and talk frequently after the 28th.” The group report is an important annual event for baseball organizations to report on the results of the past year and plans for the coming year.

The team had one brief meeting 먹튀검증 with agents Lim Chan-kyu and Ham Deok-ju. “I met with the agent once and told him to postpone it until the 28th,” Cha said.

As it was a ceremonial first meeting, there was no mention of a contract (proposal).

“I just said, ‘I want to sign the player, I want to sign the player, but I want to talk about something specific after the group debriefing,’ and the agent said he understood,” Cha explained.

They haven’t even started negotiations yet, and rumors are already flying. There is also talk that NC is interested in starting pitcher Im Chan-kyu.

“There are a lot of rumors these days. We haven’t even talked about it (the offer) yet, but there’s even a story that I offered 4 billion won and he asked for 8 billion won and walked out,” Cha said, laughing.

Im was originally eligible for free agency after last season, but instead of exercising his option, he opted for free agency again. Last year, he struggled, going 6-11 with a 5.04 ERA. This year, he started the season in long relief before taking over the starting role and posting a career-high 14-3 record with a 3.42 ERA. Im and Jang are the only two starting pitchers available in free agency.

After struggling with nagging injuries for the past two years,

Ham Deok-ju has returned to form this season. In 57 games (55⅔ innings pitched), he went 4-0 with 16 shutouts, four saves, and a 1.62 ERA. In the Korean Series, he pitched well in four games, allowing one run in 3⅓ innings.

Meanwhile, the KBO announced the rosters of 19 free agent-approved players on the 18th. Lotte signed Jeon Jun-woo for a four-year total of 4.7 billion won (4 billion won guaranteed, 7 billion won incentive) on the 20th, while Hanwha signed Lotte’s Ahn Chi-hong for a 4+2-year total of 7.2 billion won (4 billion won guaranteed, 8 billion won option, 2 years of mutual options, 1.3 billion won guaranteed, 4 billion won option). 온라인카지노 Samsung signed KT pitcher Kim Jae-yoon for a four-year total of 5.8 billion won (2 billion won in down payment, 2.8 billion won in total annual salary, and 1 billion won in incentives).
