Lee Jung-hoo 1.1 billion won-Ahn Woo-jin 133.3% increase, Kiwoom this year, ‘as much as you did well’
Kiwoom’Captain’ Lee Jeong-hoo (25) wrote a new record for the highest annual contract salary.
It was revealed that Lee Jung-hoo received 1.1 billion won in the annual salary renewal result announced by Kiwoom on the 20th. Lee Jung-hoo, who won five batting crowns last year and became the MVP of the regular season, signed a contract for 1.1 billion won, a 46.7% (350 million won) increase from his annual salary of 750 million won. It is the highest single-year contract for a pure KBO leaguer, excluding free agents (FA), non-FA multi-year contracts, and returning overseas players.
He, of course, also broke the record for highest salary in his seventh year. In 2020, Ha-seong Kim (now San Diego) received 550 million won, which was the highest amount, but it was doubled. Lee Jung-hoo received 230 million won in 2019, his third year, and relayed the record for the highest annual salary by year, and peaked this year. 헤라카지노
An Woo-jin, who failed to acquire the Taegeuk mark, but started to solidify his position as the team ace, also stamped at 350 million won, a 133.3% (200 million won) increase. He recorded the highest rate of increase among 51 people subject to a renewal contract. It is like continuing the tradition of Kiwoom, in which the annual salary rises vertically after performing well.
Catcher Lee Ji-young, whose free agent contract expired, also signed a contract for 500 million won, an increase of 200 million won (66.7%). It seems that he led the team to the Korean Series and gave him a contract worthy of the value of a ‘national catcher’ who led pitchers stably at the fall party.
Kim Hye-seong, who is considered a post-big leaguer, received 420 million won (an increase of 100 million won), and Kim Jae-woong, who proved his potential as a finishing pitcher, received 220 million won (an increase of 116 million won).
Kiwoom promised 11 million won in annual salaries to 11 out of 51 candidates for annual salary renewal contracts.
