“By May, you’ll know his name by heart”

The San Francisco Giants’ acquisition of Jung-Hoo Lee, 26, was named one of the top 10 stories of the offseason.

“Baseball is coming back,” said MLB.com, the official site of Major League Baseball. We spend every day of the offseason reporting on what’s happening, making video and analyzing metrics. It’s our life, it’s what we do. But we recognize that not everyone lives that way. For those people, here are the top 10 things that happened this offseason,” he said, listing the 10 most important things that happened this offseason.

Lee Jung-hoo’s move to San Francisco was the fourth item on the list. Lee is one of South Korea’s best hitters, batting .344 (3476-for-1181) with 65 home runs, 515 RBIs, and an OPS of .898 in 884 career KBO games. In 2022, he had his best season in 142 games (553 at-bats, 193 hits) with 23 home runs, 113 RBIs, and a .996 OPS, winning five batting titles (batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, RBIs, and runs scored) and the league MVP award. In his last year in the majors, an ankle injury ended his season early, but he still managed to hit .861 with six home runs, 45 RBI, 카지노사이트 and an OPS of .861 in 86 games (105-for-330). After posting a post-season challenge to the major leagues, Lee surprised everyone by signing a six-year, $113 million contract with San Francisco. It’s the largest contract ever for a KBO player to reach the majors.

“There’s a new crop of big free agents,” MLB.com wrote, highlighting Lee and others who joined the majors this offseason, including Go Woo-seok (San Diego) and Shota Imanaga (Cubs). “This season has been the most prolific since we’ve been keeping an eye on international free agent talent,” said MLB.com, referring to Asian players moving to the majors. “While the big free agent signings slowed down, international stars led the market. Yoshinobu Yamamoto was the biggest name to emerge.”

San Francisco plans to use Lee as its starting center fielder and leadoff man this season.

However, Lee hasn’t played a single game in the big leagues, so he’s still a bit of an unknown to major league fans. MLB.com writes, “If you don’t watch the KBO, you might not know about San Francisco’s new center fielder Lee Jung-hoo (who goes by the unbelievable nickname ‘Grandson of the Wind’) or Go Woo-seok (Lee’s brother-in-law!). There’s also Cubs starting pitcher Shota Imanaga. “You may not recognize these names right now,” says Lee, “but by May, you’ll be memorizing them. But come May, you’ll be memorizing their names,” he said of the new stars.

Meanwhile, Ohtani and the Dodgers were the stars of the offseason. MLB.com cited Ohtani’s 10-year, $700 million contract as the top story, followed by the Dodgers’ signings of Yamamoto (12 years, $325 million), Tyler Glasnow (5 years, $135 million), and Teoscar Hernandez (1 year, $23.5 million).

Other highlights included Juan Soto’s trade to the Yankees, up-and-coming prospects, the retirement of Miguel Cabrera and other big leaguers, the induction of Adrian Beltre, Joe Mauer, 메이저사이트 and Todd Helton into the Hall of Fame, new managers this offseason, the Blake Snell, Cody Bellinger, Jordan Montgomery, and Matt Chapman free agent signings, and new rule changes, including the expansion of the position to first base.
