Lee Jung-hoo, who even changed his batting form, said, “20 teams want it.”It’s “Time of Boras”

The Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) has officially requested the Major League Baseball (MLB) Secretariat to remove Lee Jeong-hoo’s post.

On July 15, the MLB requested to verify Lee’s identity, to which the KBO responded. His team, Kiwoom, also provided medical records for Lee’s post. Detailed medical records are essential as Lee has suffered unprecedented injuries this season.

Lee’s post has not yet been published. The US is currently on Thanksgiving break. The race to sign Lee is expected to begin in earnest in December after the holidays.레모나토토 도메인

The New York Post reported that 20 of the 30 major league teams are knocking on Lee’s door. Many believe he has more baseball talent and hitting ability than Kim Ha-sung, who came to the United States earlier. MLB.com ranks Lee 14th among this year’s free agents, while Fox Sports has him at No. 4.

Kim signed a 4+1 year, $39 million deal when he went to San Diego in 2021. Lee will surely exceed that amount. The Dodgers even projected Lee’s contract to be worth up to four years and $56 million (approximately $73.1 billion).

The New York Yankees and San Francisco Giants are the frontrunners in the race for Lee. Both teams spent heavily in the outfield this winter. Along with Cody Bellinger and Juan Soto, Jung-hoo could be the key to their outfield. The Giants have already sent scouts to South Korea and have been monitoring Lee for some time. San Francisco general manager Pete Putilla personally attended Lee’s home farewell game on Oct. 10 and gave him a standing ovation.

The Washington Nationals, San Diego Padres, and Seattle Mariners are among the other teams that have been following Lee.

Lee’s greatest value is his youth at 25 years old. Considering that most Korean and Japanese players reach the United States around 30, he has four to five more years of service time. He is praised for his full swing, low strikeout rate, and excellent contact skills.

However, adjusting to the fastball is key. Even Kim had to spend a full season adjusting to a major league fastball. In his second year, he showed his true colors. Kim’s is a very quick and successful case.

Lee had previously tried a batting form that changed his bat position to focus on attacking fastballs, only to revert back to a hitting slump. It will be interesting to see if Lee will change back to his previous batting form, or if he will introduce a new one.

Lee’s American agent is Scott Boras, aka the Devil’s Agent. Boras said of Lee, “He can hit and play defense. He is a player who will create a ‘K-pop’ craze in the United States.”
