Technical support issues
Another evaluation came out that Lee Jung-hoo (25) is better suited to the San Francisco Giants than Cody Bellinger (28). San Francisco Bay Area said on the 26th (Korea Standard Time), "Bellinger is the number one center fielder in the FA, but overall, Lee Jung-hoo seems to be more suitable."
Even San Francisco Bay Area said, "San Francisco is into Lee Jung-hoo." I scouted three times. He was a former shortstop who turned to center field in 2017, and is the son of legendary shortstop Lee Cho-beom, who played 20 seasons in the KBO and NPB.
San Francisco Bay Area did not clearly explain why Lee Jung-hoo suits San Francisco better than Bellinger. Just about Lee Jung-hoo, he said, "I have elite batting skills and strikeout numbers. "Not only is he hitting, but he is a solid defender in center field."
What is certain is that Lee Jung-hoo provides more liquidity in using Payroll because it is cheaper than Bellinger. Lee Jung-hoo is not the only FA that San Francisco is aiming for this winter anyway. Some say that they want Bellinger. Shohei Ohtani (29) and Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25) are mentioned. Juan Soto (25, San Diego Padres) is considered a trade candidate.
Regarding Lee Jung-hoo's concerns, San Francisco Bay Area said, "The average fastball speed in the KBO League is about 88 miles. "I can increase my strikeouts as I adjust to the Major League at the beginning," he said. To adapt this in advance, he tried to take the bat down near his chest as if he was lying on his shoulder this season and take it to the heating point faster, but it failed for now.
In addition, the San Francisco Bay Area said, "The level of the KBO League also falls somewhere between Double A and Triple A." In the end, adapting to the Major League Baseball environment is the most important. Ryu Hyun-jin (36, FA) also said this whenever Lee Jung-hoo was mentioned. "Best friend" Kim Ha-sung also agrees with this story, but is optimistic about Lee Jung-hoo's success.
San Francisco Bay Area did not even expect Lee Jung-hoo's ransom. It cited MLB Trade Lummers' five-year, $50 million forecast. The five-year, $50 million is the smallest amount among media that predicted Lee Jung-hoo's ransom this off-season.
KBO has requested the Major League Secretariat to post Lee Jung-hoo. After the Thanksgiving holiday, the Major League Baseball Secretariat is expected to accept KBO's request and proceed with the posting in earnest. The biggest concern is how much San Francisco actually values Lee Jung-hoo.
