Major League Baseball has its eyes on Lee Jung-hoo. Lee Jung-hoo, a member of the Kiwoom Heroes, will be posting overseas after the end of this season in agreement with the club. He is aiming to follow in the footsteps of his close senior Kim Ha-seong (San Diego) and make it to the major leagues.
Working with ‘super agent’ Scott Boras, Lee has already attracted the attention of major league clubs. At Kiwoom’s last home game of the season on March 10, San Francisco Giants general manager Pete Putilla came to the field to watch Lee play.굿모닝토토 주소
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, released its free agent power rankings on April 4 (KST). As expected, Shohei Ohtani is the No. 1 player. Ohtani, who made waves in the major leagues as a two-hitter, is eligible for free agency for the first time since the end of the season. Ohtani is considered the biggest name in the free agent market and could break the all-time record.
Second on the list is Japanese pitcher Yoshinobuda Yamamoto. The “ace” of the Orix Buffaloes, Yamamoto has been impressive on the international stage and has been unrivaled in Japan. Yamamoto is expected to be a 2-3 starter in the Major Leagues right away. The Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, and Boston Red Sox are the favorites to sign him.
Lee Jung-hoo was ranked 13th. “Lee had ankle surgery in August of this year, but is expected to be back in the lineup,” MLB.com writes, adding, “Lee was the KBO League MVP in the 2022 season and batted 4-for-22 in the WBC.” They also mention Lee’s career stats.
“He is also an above-average defender in center field,” he added. According to MLB.com, the San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and New York Yankees are the teams most likely to sign Lee.
