U.S. “Lee Jung-hoo, SF first baseman” Japan “Better treatment than Yoshida”

Although he has yet to finalize a contract, U.S. media have projected Lee Jung-hoo, 25, as the San Francisco Giants’ first baseman in 2024.MLB Network and CBS Sports published their projected starting lineups for San Francisco in 2024 on Wednesday (June 13), with Lee’s name at the top of the batting order. He is projected to play center field.On the same day, MLB.com, the New York Post, and The Athletic reported, “Jung-hoo Lee agreed to a six-year, $113 million contract with San Francisco. The contract includes an opt-out clause after four years (the contract can be terminated by agreement of the club and the player).”

Considered one of the best hitters in the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO), the Giants actively pursued Lee before he even filed for posting (non-tender offer). Giants general manager Pete Putteler even traveled to Seoul’s Gocheok Dome in October to watch Lee hit for the Kiwoom Heroes.The Giants have made outfield reinforcements, especially in the middle infield, a top priority in the offseason.In 2023, the Giants’ infield had an OAA (Outs Above Average) of -13, ranking 28th out of 30 teams in the majors.This year, the Giants didn’t have a “starter” in center field.Luis Matos started the most games in center field (76), but hit just .250 with two home runs and 14 RBIs.Bryce Johnson started 30 games in center field and Wade McClure started 20 games in center field, but both were underwhelming.San Francisco manager Bob Melvin said he was “looking for a center fielder with great athleticism and defense.”This means that Jung-hoo is in the right 카지노사이트킹 place to become a starter in center field.
