Outfielder Kwon Hee-dong, who was one of the free agent (free agent) unsigned, finally signed. Remains in the original team, NC Dinos.
The NC club announced in a press release on the afternoon of the 27th, “We have signed a contract with outfielder Kwon Hee-dong, who is a free agent (FA), for a period of one year and a maximum of 125 million won.” The details of the contract are an annual salary of 90 million won and an option of 35 million won.
Kwon Hee-dong, who joined hands with NC again, said, “I am happy to continue playing baseball. , I felt a great desire for baseball. It was difficult, but it was a precious time for me. I am grateful to NC for giving me the opportunity, and I will prepare well and come back in a good shape.”
Kwon Hee-dong, born in 1990, is an outfielder who joined NC with the 84th overall pick in the 9th round of the 2013 KBO Rookie Draft. From his first year in 2013, when his team reached the first team stage, his role in the team was so great that he played an active role as a main player.
Until last season, he has appeared in 857 regular league (group 1) games, recording 645 hits, 81 homers, 381 RBIs, a batting average of 0.259, and an on-base percentage of 0.353. In 2017, he hit the most home runs (19) in a season since his debut, and in 2020 (12), when he achieved a double-digit home run in three years, he helped the team win its first combined championship.
However, from the 2021 season, there was a distinct decline. Due to a violation of quarantine rules that broke out during the season, I couldn’t step on the ground for a while. Kwon Hee-dong, who had a long hiatus, was able to return to the first team only in early May of last year. 온라인카지노
In the meantime, the process of returning to the left fielder, which was his main position, such as young outfielders who stood out and foreign hitter Nick Martini, was not smooth. In the end, last year’s regular season performance was somewhat disappointing with 54 hits in 238 at-bats in 82 games, a batting average of 0.227, 5 homers and 22 RBIs. As a result, it was not possible to attract attention in the FA market.
The team believes in Kwon Hee-dong’s rebound. Lim Seon-nam, general manager of NC, said, “I am happy to renew the contract with Kwon Hee-dong, who has been with me since the beginning of the game.
