- on Jan 30, 2023
Lotte Koo Seung-min (33) receives 248.6 million won. It is rare to sign an annual salary contract in increments of 100,000 won, but Lotte has done a difficult job.
On the 30th, Lotte announced the renewal of the contract with 60 people subject to annual salary contracts. Excluding free agents (FA) and non-FA multi-year contracts, Koo Seung-min is second after finisher Kim Won-joong (252 million won). Koo Seung-min, who played a pivotal role in the bullpen, which collapsed with 26 holds (2 wins, 4 losses, ERA of 2.90) in 73 games last year, achieved more than 20 holds in three consecutive seasons and established himself as a winning team.
Koo Seung-min, who received 181 million won last year, stamped at 248.6 million won, a 37.3% increase. Kim Won-joong, the highest non-FA player, 스포츠토토 signed a proposal that was cut by 9.4% from 272 million won last year.
Na Kyun-an and Lee In-bok, who played the role of a mound supporter by going back and forth between starting and bullpen, joined the ranks of billionaires. Na Kyun-an, who received 58 million won last year, went on the mound 39 times and played 117.2 innings, recording an average ERA of 3.98 with 3 wins, 8 losses and 2 holds. He often failed to win even after fighting back, but he was recognized for his contribution to doing the dirty work without injury and was stamped at 109 million won, an increase of 87.9%.
Lee In-bok, who is undergoing rehabilitation after an elbow bone fragment removal surgery, was also recognized for contributing to the weak starting lineup. His annual salary, which was 85 million won last year, rose by 70.6% to 145 million won. Lee In-bok, who has risen to the ranks of billionaires, is expected to contribute to the mound as a starter as soon as he completes rehabilitation.
Outfielders Hwang Seong-bin and Ko Seung-min, the leading players of the “Young Lotte,” are also expected to have a warm season. Hwang Seong-bin, who emerged as a Lotte lead-off candidate, had an impressive season despite receiving the minimum annual salary (30 million won). He renewed the contract this year for 72 million won, a 140% increase. Hwang Seong-bin, who achieved not bad results with a batting average of 0.294 in 102 games of the season, is expected to grow one step further if he refines the details. Lotte revealed expectations with the highest rate of increase.
Koh Seung-min, one of the candidates for the center line, will sign up for 73 million won, a 92.1% increase from 38 million won, and take on the full-time outfielder challenge. Koh Seung-min played 92 games for the season, but finished with a 300 hitter (0.316). If he achieves similar results even after playing full-time, he is likely to join the ranks of billionaires. It means to be motivated.
Although it is the main axis, players who left regrets were motivated with options. Han Dong-hee, who was 172 million won, signed a guarantee contract with a 12% increase to 192.6 million won. However, he can receive up to 266.8 million won if the team achieves the desired result.
Lee Hak-joo, who received an annual salary of 70 million won, only received a 2 million won increase, but like Han Dong-hee, he signed a contract to receive 96 million won if he performed above a certain level.
After completing the annual salary contract, Lotte will depart for Guam on the 1st of next month and start spring camp.
