Finally… the first free agent in 9 years is coming out. Simultaneous release of 30S finisher and 30 hold setup man
The first FA born and raised by KT Wiz is coming out.
They are closer Kim Jae-yoon and middle pitcher Ju Kwon. Kim Jae-yoon joined KT in the 2nd special nomination in 13th place in 2015, and Joo Kwon came to KT in 2015 as a priority nomination.
He pitched steadily, growing steadily,토토사이트 and will be eligible for free agency at the end of the 2023 season.
Kim Jae-yoon’s original position was catcher, and he also advanced to the United States, but he came to Korea without fulfilling his dream of becoming a major leaguer. As a strong dog, KT chose him based on his potential as a pitcher, and settled down as a finishing pitcher. Kim Jae-yoon, who gradually gained experience, has now become a top-class finisher in the KBO League. He posted 21 saves in 2020 and broke 20 saves for the first time, and in 2021, he made 2 saves in the Korean Series along with 32 saves to become a winning finish. And last year, he posted 33 saves and set a new record for the most saves in a KT season, breaking through 30 saves for the second consecutive year.
Joo Kwon is KT’s representative midfielder. In 2020, he recorded 31 holds and became the king of holds, and in 2021, he recorded 27 holds and ranked second in holds. Last year, he recorded 3 wins, 3 losses, 1 save and 15 holds, but he is still the main bullpen pitcher in the team.
Last season, Shim Woo-jun was the first player who joined KT to obtain FA status. However, Shim Woo-jun did not apply for FA because of his military enlistment. If Kim Jae-yoon and Joo-kwon complete the season successfully and apply for free agency, they will become the first free agents to join KT.
Kim Jae-yoon said, “I did it with the desire to throw only in the first team, but somehow I became proud of myself.” “I want to make as many saves as possible without deciding on the number. There are many good juniors, but it would be a lie if I said that I was not greedy for the title. I will try to compete as much as possible,” he said, expressing his determination for the FA season.
Ju Kwon-do, who was selected as the Chinese national team for this WBC, said, “When the offer came from China, I wanted to prepare for the season better because I will become a free agent this year.” I decided to go because I thought I could gain experience.”
