KT Wiz’s Park Young-hyun has hit the salary jackpot

KT Wiz’s “hold king” Park Young-hyun has hit the salary jackpot.

KT announced on Nov. 31 that it has finalized salary contracts for the 2024 season with 64 of the 65 players who were eligible for re-signing, excluding outfielder Song Min-seop. Among them, both the club’s highest percentage increase and the highest increase went to Park Young-hyun, who played in a must-win group last season.

Park, who was drafted in the first round in 2022, appeared in 52 games in his rookie year with a 1-0 record and a 3.66 ERA. Last year, he emerged as a key member of KT’s pitching staff. In 68 appearances on the mound, he went 3-3 with four saves and a 2.75 ERA in 32 appearances. He led the team in holds and won his first title.

Young-hyun Park, who received military service benefits after winning gold with the Hangzhou Asian Games team, 온라인카지노 will take on the role of fireman after Kim Jae-yoon, who was the backup until last year, moved to Samsung.

“I’m very excited for this season. “

“Of course, I’m embarrassed that there’s been so much talk about me being the next KT closer, but I hope I’m the one to take the job. It’s been my dream to play that role, and I need to prepare better for it,” he said honestly.

Park added, “I think being a closer is much easier than being a set-up man. You have a lot of time to prepare, so you can prepare perfectly. As a middle reliever, you don’t know when you’re going to go out in the fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth inning, but as a closer, you only have to close one inning in the ninth. It’s a lot of pressure, but I think I’ll be fine.”
