LG Twins outfielder Moon Sung-ju has signed a contract worth 200 million won per year.
In the LG Twins’ announcement of the 2024 salary renewal status of LG players on the 19th,
Moon Sung-joo signed a contract for 200 million won,
up 150 million won from last year’s 95 million won.
That’s a 110.5 percent increase. 온라인카지노
Moon, who earned 42 million won in 2022, had a breakout year that year,
batting .327 (99-for-39) with six home runs and 41 RBIs,
earning a 53 million won (126 percent) increase to 95 million won.
It was the second consecutive year he received a raise of more than 100 percent.
Moon, who was in contention for the outfield batting title in the 2022 season until August,
whose batting dropped off at the end of the season due to a decline in fitness,
surprised the coaching staff in spring training last year.
His swing became bigger.
He came to Arizona with a long swing, which he tweaked during the offseason to hit long balls to be more competitive.
Hitting coach Lee Ho-joon saw this and had an emergency meeting with manager Yoon Kyung-yeop, and Yoon and Lee convinced Moon.
They told him that he didn’t need to change his swing to hit long balls,
and that he could produce plenty of long balls with his current swing.
Moon went back to his strengths of making contact, and it worked like a charm.
When we were planning the season, there was no place for him.
He had hit well in 2022, but he couldn’t fit into an outfield that included Kim Hyun-soo,
Park Hae-min, Hong Chang-ki, and foreign hitter Austin Dean.
Yoon had vowed to keep Lee Jae-won at first base.
But when Lee suffered a side injury in an exhibition game and Austin moved to first base,
the opportunity opened up for Moon Sung-ju, and Moon seized it.
