Lee Jeong-hoo appears on MLB’s main website

The Major League Baseball (MLB) San Francisco Giants, who recruited Lee Jeong-hoo, were selected as the team that achieved the greatest results in the outfield category during the off-season.

On the 12th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official website of the U.S. Major League Baseball, selected teams that have well-reinforced each position ahead of the new season.

While teams were selected by comparing FanGraphs' WAR (Win Contribution Above Replacement Players) by position for the 2023 season with the expected figures for 2024, San Francisco was singled out as the team that made the most notable reinforcement in the outfield department.

MLB.com explained the reason for the selection, saying, “Although San Francisco did not achieve as much success as expected in the off-season, it recruited Korean center fielder Lee Jeong-hoo, known as the ‘Grandson of the Wind.’”

At the same time, he predicted Lee Jeong-hoo's smooth adaptation to the big league.

The media pointed out, “Lee Jeong-hoo, who is famous for his impressive contact ability at the plate, is expected to successfully settle in MLB by recording an on-base percentage of 0.354 and a wRC+ (adjusted run production) of 116 in the 2024 season, with walks similar to the number of strikeouts.” 메이저-토토사이트

He continued, “Lee Jung-hoo’s expected WAR as a center fielder is 3.2, which will be a significant increase from the 0.4 recorded last year when San Francisco used 10 players, including right fielders Mike Yastrzemski and Luis Matos, as center fielders.”

Lee Jeong-hoo, who played in the KBO League for seven seasons, completed the 2023 season and took on the challenge of the big league through the posting system (private competitive bidding). Last month, he signed a large six-year contract worth $113 million with San Francisco.

San Francisco plans to appoint Lee Jeong-hoo as the starting center fielder and as the number one hitter.

The media composited the images of six of the players appearing in the article and introduced them as the main photo, including Lee Jeong-hoo.

In addition to San Francisco, the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals were also listed as teams with notable reinforcements in the outfield department.

Ahead of the new season, the Yankees strengthened their outfield by acquiring Juan Soto, Trent Grisham, and Alex Verdugo through trades.

The LA Dodgers, who recruited Japanese pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto in addition to Shohei Otani, the ‘biggest player' in this Stove League, and brought in Tyler Glasnow through a trade, were selected as a team with a strengthened second baseman department.

The Dodgers decided to hire Mookie Betts as their starting second baseman starting in the 2024 season.

The Cincinnati Reds were selected as the team that made the most progress in strengthening their starting lineup in the off-season, beating the Dodgers, who had made extensive reinforcements to their starting lineup.

The media said, “The Dodgers, who added Yamamoto and Glasnow to the starting lineup, are strong candidates,” but added, “We should also pay attention to Cincinnati, which recruited players who have not received much attention, such as Frankie Montas and Nick Martinez. Cincinnati is a dark horse ranked among the top MLB starters. Cincinnati has a lot of interesting young pitchers, and while Montas is a risk, he has a good chance of rebounding. “There is plenty of potential,” he emphasized.  슬롯사이트
