Why did Oh Ji-Hwan apply for free agency after signing a 6-year, $12.4 billion contract?

Oh Ji-hwan (33-LG Twins) was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2023 Korean Series.

He also won the Rolex watch left by the late ELG Group President Koo Bon-moo, who helped ELG win its first championship in 29 years.

Then, Oh filed for free agency.

To leave Elgie?

No. He wanted to protect one more teammate.
In January, Oh signed a six-year, $12.4 billion multi-year contract with the team.

However, the contract was not for the 2023 season.

Oh was first eligible for the FFA after the 2019 season and signed a four-year, 4 billion won deal with the ELG.

This season was the last year of his contract, but he extended it early.

The new multi-year deal runs from 2024 to 2029.

With his F.A. status, Oh will only have to put his stamp on the contract, which was agreed upon in January.
Oh did not have to apply for the FFA.

However, it was necessary because of the second round of the draft on May 22. 카지노사이트

During the second round of the draft, each team will select a list of 35 protected players, and FFA-approved players and players in their first to third years of eligibility will automatically be placed on the protected list.

With Oh’s FFA application, Elsie saved one protected player.

Samsung Lions closer Oh Seung-hwan’s decision to apply for the FFA was due to the second round of the draft.
In addition to Oh and Seung-hwan, this year’s FFA market includes Im Chan-gyu, Ham Deok-joo, Kim Min-sung (LG Twins), Kim Jae-yoon, Joo Kwon (KT Wiz), Kim Min-sik (SSG Landers), Hong Gun-hee, and Yang Seok-hwan (Doosan Bears), Kim Sun-bin and Ko Jong-wook (KIA Tigers), Ahn Chi-hong and Jeon Jun-woo (Lotte Giants), Kim Dae-woo and Kang Kang-ul (Samsung), Jang Min-jae (Hanwha Eagles), Lim Chang-min and Lee Ji-young (Kiwoom Heroes), and 19 others. Seo Gun-chang (LG), Lee Yong-kyu (Kiwoom), Lee Jae-won (SSG) and Park Kyung-soo (KT) have given up their F.A. eligibility.
With 20 or fewer players applying for FFA, each of the 10 KBO clubs can sign up to two players from other clubs for FFA.

As the ‘War of the Chuns’ began on the 19th, attention has been focused on Yang Seok-hwan (Grade A) and Kim Jae-yoon (Grade B).
