Despite the fact that the New Year is just around the corner, the destination of veteran infielder Seo Kun-chang, who has 200 hits that he has yet to win, has yet to be decided. Kia Tigers, which is still negotiating with internal FA Kim Sun-bin, is also one of the candidates for Seo’s destination. However, Kia has announced that it would consider signing a contract with Kim Sun-bin as its top priority.헤라카지노
Seo was removed from the 2024 suspension list. Seo left the Kiwoom Heroes in the middle of the 2021 season and put on the LG Twins jersey. However, Seo did not show much performance in the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
Seo did not make a comeback in the 2023 season when he reunited with manager Yeom Kyung-yeop. Seo played in 44 games, had a batting average of 0.200/ 22 hits/ 12 RBIs/ 14 points/ in the 2023 season. He was also disqualified in the Korean Series entry.
Seo Geon-chang has been agonizing over the next destination after excluding the list of players on hold. Kiwoom reached out first, but the decision was not made immediately. Seo Geon-chang is expected to decide on the uniform to wear in the 2024 season while continuing to watch the situation of clubs with weaknesses in the second base position.
One of the clubs with weaknesses in second base is KIA. KIA seems to have a hard time progressing in the negotiation table with internal FA Kim Sun-bin. There was some agreement in the big frame, but there is still a part to continue negotiations in the detailed contract elements.
In preparation for Plan B, Kia seems to have to consider recruiting Seo Geon-chang. Kia is likely connecting not only Seo Geon-chang but also infielder Kim Min-seong who entered the FA market. However, Kia stressed that signing Kim Sun-bin is its top priority over recruiting from outside.
“There were talks about recruiting players from outside, but for now, staying with Kim and going all-in is our top priority. We recently proposed the terms of the contract, which we revised through several rounds of negotiations. I hope the decision will be made by the player within this year, but I don’t think it will be easy. We will continue to show our commitment to catch Kim as best we can,” a Kia source said.
Kim Sun-bin also announced his team’s remaining on Jan. 14 over the years when he signed his first FA contract (four years worth a total of 4 billion won). Negotiations are getting longer again this time, but he sincerely wants to stay with the Tigers. I wonder if Kim and Kia will be able to sign the FA seal before their departure from the spring camp in February
