Lee Jong-yeol, the general manager of the internal FA crackdown, said, “I can’t wait to finish the contract with Oh Seung-hwan and Kang Han-ul.”

Samsung, which has recruited Kim Jae-yoon (a total of 5.8 billion won for four years) and Lim Chang-min (a total of 800 million won for two years) from the outside FA market, has begun a full-fledged internal crackdown. Three players from Samsung are Oh Seung-hwan, Kim Dae-woo (a pitcher above) and Kang Han-ul (infielders) who have qualified as free agents after the last season.

Samsung, which has decided to let all of its internal FA players stay, successfully secured Kim Dae-woo on Tuesday. The terms of the contract are up to 400 million won (down payment of 100 million won, annual salary of 200 million won, option of 100 million won) for two years.헤라카지노도메인

Kim Dae-woo, who started his professional career with Nexen in 2011 after graduating from Seoul High School and Hongik University, transferred to Samsung through a one-on-one trade with Chae Tae-in in March 2016. He played in 352 games in the first division until last year, recording 27 wins, 26 losses, two saves, and 23 holds with an ERA of 5.75. Kim is called an “invisible hero” who takes care of the mound’s bad work while going back and forth between starting pitcher and pitcher.

The club said, “Kim Dae-woo is expected to add diversity to the existing pitching staff as an underhand pitcher who is lacking in the team, as well as play an all-weather role by going back and forth between starters.”

After completing the contract, Kim Dae-woo said, “I’m happy to play baseball while listening to the cheering sound of Samsung Lions fans again,” adding, “As a veteran player, I want to show my fans better performance and better performance than before with a sense of responsibility.”

Oh and Kang have only two left. Samsung has continued negotiations with players to narrow differences.

Oh Seung-hwan, who boasts 400 saves in his career, is a closing pitcher representing the KBO League. “[Seunghwan] can add to his career even if I look at him from the sidelines,” Kang said on KBSN sports commentator Kim Tae-kyun’s YouTube channel “TK52.” “What’s interesting is that I heard his performance was very poor last year, but he achieved 30 saves.”

Kang gave a high evaluation to Oh’s thorough self-management. “He is very good at taking care of himself. He works out a lot and he is naturally a big fan of sports. That’s why his skills cannot deteriorate,” Kang said. “When I catch pitchers, I feel their ball power weaken as they get older, but Seung-hwan is still the same.”

Kang Han-ul, who has a batting average of 268 with 574 hits, two homers, 158 RBIs, 275 runs and 43 steals in 829 games in the first division, is a player who plays all infield positions and is needed to strengthen his depth.

“I want to wrap this up quickly. I am narrowing my views with the two players. There are many issues that need to be resolved, not just in terms of money,” Lee said in expressing confidence. “I think things will work out well, including Oh Seung-hwan and Kang Woo-yeol. I hope we can get results soon,” he said.
