“They asked about Lee Jung-hoo in detail.”
These are the words of former NC foreign pitcher Drew Luchinski (Oakland Athletics). On the morning of the 13th (Korean time), Luchinski made a surprise visit to Reed Park baseball field in Tucson, Arizona, NC’s spring camp site. Luczynski, who played for NC until last year, visited the ballpark to cheer up his old teammates and greeted his players. Until last year, Luchinski pitched in 121 games over four seasons in the KBO League, going 53-36 with an ERA of 3.06. At the end of last year, Luchinski signed a contract with Oakland for up to $8 million (approximately 10.1 billion won) for 1+1 years바카라사이트.
Luchinski told the reporters the story of Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom) while explaining his transfer process. Luchinski said, “Before signing with Oakland, I talked to the San Diego club, and they asked me in detail about Lee Jung-hoo (as well as my contract).”
After finishing this season, Lee Jung-hoo announced that he would advance to the major leagues of American professional baseball. Last month, he signed a contract with Boras Corporation, led by Scott Boras, the “Devil’s Agent,” and started preparing to enter the big leagues in earnest.
Currently, major league clubs are interested in Lee Jung-hoo. Kiwoom’s spring camp site, Salt River Field in Scottsdale, Arizona, is constantly visited by incumbent major league scouts. In particular, the National League’s San Francisco Giants and the American League’s strong team, the Boston Red Sox, which are 30 minutes away by car from Salt River Field, are paying special attention to the field by constantly dispatching scouts.
However, this is the first time that San Diego’s interest has been known. Luchinski highly praised Lee Jung-hoo, saying, “To succeed in the major leagues, finding a defensive position is important. If you become a center fielder, you can survive because you hit well.”
