While professional baseball KT Wiz signed an annual salary contract for the 2023 season, center hitter Kang Baek-ho, who attracted the most attention, drew attention by stamping the annual salary cut by nearly half.
The KT club announced on the 29th that it had completed an annual salary contract for the 2023 season with 61 people subject to renewal.
The player who recorded the highest increase rate in the team was pitcher Eom Sang-baek, who was very active last year. Eom Sang-baek, who recorded an 11-2 win rate of 0.846 and an average ERA of 2.95 in the 2022 season starting and bullpen, signed a contract for 200 million won, a 150% increase from 80 million won. 메이저놀이터

Among the beasts, Kim Min-hyeok (150 million won), Oh Yoon-seok (120 million won), and Kim Jun-tae (100 million won) rose to the billion-dollar annual salary.
Kang Baek-ho, who had difficulties negotiating his annual salary until the day before the club’s spring camp departure, signed a 47.3% reduction from 550 million won to 290 million won. Kang Baek-ho was sluggish last season due to two injuries. Kang Baek-ho, who played in only 62 games out of 144, recorded only 6 homers, 25 RBIs, and a batting average of 0.245.
Kang Baek-ho, who finished salary negotiations on the night of the 28th, one day before leaving for the spring camp after persistent persuasion from the club, was unable to leave the country with the team and was told that he would board a plane to the United States on the 31st (Tuesday).
