“They asked me what I needed, but I was already prepared.”

Kiwoom Heroes’ Lee Jung-hoo is currently in the midst of preparations for his trip to the United States. After consulting with his team, Kiwoom, he agreed to try out for the major leagues through the posting system, and Kiwoom submitted the necessary documents to the KBO Secretariat on April 22. On the 24th, the KBO requested 30 teams to post through the MLB office. Lee’s post is expected to be announced in early December.

As he has appointed Scott Boras, a “master negotiator,” as his agent, Lee is making personal preparations apart from negotiations. Preparing to leave for the U.S. After completing his rehabilitation, 바카라사이트 Lee played the final schedule of his team’s regular season, and he has been taking a break after the season to continue his personal workouts.

He also sought advice from seniors who have made the jump from the KBO to the major leagues.

His closest advisor is Kim Ha-seong, who currently plays for the San Diego Padres. He used to play for the Heroes and is a close personal friend, so he stays in touch and sees him often. He has given Lee a lot of real-life advice about his own struggles, including the advice to “work hard on your English”.

The same goes for Park Byung-ho, another senior who made it to the major leagues. Park, who played for the Heroes in the past, rose to the top of the KBO and made it to the major leagues through the posting system. Park played for the Minnesota Twins from 2016 to 2017.

“I recently spoke with Jung-hoo on the phone. He asked me what I needed to prepare before going to the U.S., so I told him this and that, but he was already ready. He is a very hardworking junior, so I think he will do well because he has prepared well.”

Meanwhile, Lee’s destination is expected to be revealed as early as mid-December. Once the MLB office posts Lee in early December, he will have 30 days to negotiate. 안전놀이터 It will likely take until the beginning of December to find out, as most of the major players’ decisions will be made after the MLB Winter Meetings. The San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees, and San Diego Padres are among the leading contenders.
