Samsung Lions have finalized a free agent deal
The Samsung Lions have finalized a free agent deal with veteran right-handed bullpen arm Dae-woo Kim, 36. Samsung announced on Monday that it has signed Kim Dae-woo to a two-year contract totaling 400 million won ($100 million signing bonus, $200 million annual salary, and $100 million option).
Kim joined the Heroes in the ninth round of the 2011 rookie draft and donned a Samsung uniform in a trade in 2016. In 352 career KBO games, 카지노사이트 Kim has a 27-26 record with 23 saves and a 5.75 ERA. Last year, he was 2-4 with a 4.50 ERA in 44 games and 64 innings. Samsung said, “Dae-woo is an underhanded pitcher that the team is lacking,” adding, “He will add diversity to the existing pitching staff and provide all-weather performance in the middle and starting spots.
Dae-woo Kim, who became a free agent after last season, chose to exercise his rights. It made sense for Samsung, who needed roster protection ahead of the second round of the draft, and for the player, who wanted to confirm his value in the market.
Eyes were on Donghwa early on.
Samsung acquired former KT closer Kim Jae-yoon through free agency and added right-handed sidearm Yang Hyun in the second round of the draft. However, they still needed a veteran to fill out their bullpen depth and anchor it. Dae-woo was eager to put on the blue jersey of Samsung, where he had been performing consistently since the trade, so it was expected that a deal would not be long in coming.
Some people were concerned about the year-long negotiations. The lack of agreement between the club and the player, 온라인카지노사이트 coupled with the club’s year-end work hiatus and Kim Dae-woo’s impending marriage, led to the delayed announcement.
“I’m happy to be able to play baseball once again with the support of Samsung fans,” Kim Dae-woo said through the club after signing the contract, “and I want to take responsibility as a senior player and show the fans better results and good performances than before.”
