Wonseok is a year senior to elementary, middle, and high school. We met again, but they told us to do well together. 사설토토 The second draft of the 2024 KBO was held at The K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul on the 22nd. The second draft was first held in 2011 to level the league and give it a chance. Then it was held every other year until 2019. With the creation of the Futures FA system, the second draft was temporarily abolished, but it was revived this year.
Each team nominated up to the third round, and Kiwoom Heroes, Hanwha Eagles, and Samsung Lions, which were in the bottom ranks this season, were able to nominate two more. However, it is not possible to nominate more than four people to one club. The second draft transfer is 400 million won in the first round, 300 million won in the second round, 200 million won in the third round, and 100 million won in the fourth round or less. A transferred player cannot be transferred to the batting team for one year. It is automatically protected in the event of FA compensation. The first round must be registered for more than 50 days, the second round must be registered in the first group for more than 30 days, and there is no mandatory registration regulation for those under the third round.
If the criteria are not met within two years after the nomination, they will be announced as returning to the original club or as a free agent after the end of the second season. When returning to the original club, 50% of the transfer will be returned, and if the original club wants to return to the player, it will be announced as a free agent. Kiwoom, who was able to exercise the nomination right first, chose SSG Landers infielder Choi Joo-hwan. Choi Joo-hwan, who made his professional debut in 2006 as the 46th pick of the Doosan Bears in the second round, moved to SSG Landers after the end of the 2020 season.
After the end of the 2020 season, he acquired his first free agent (free contract) qualification and transferred to SSG with a four-year contract of 4.2 billion won (1.2 billion won down payment, 2.6 billion won annual salary, and 400 million won option). Choi Joo-hwan recorded 104 hits, 18 homers, 67 RBIs and 50 runs in 116 games in 2021, the first season of his transfer. However, he only played in 97 games in the 2022 season and had 63 hits, nine homers, 41 RBIs and 38 runs. However, his batting average remained at 0.235 this season, but he recorded 100 hits, 20 home runs, 63 RBIs and 48 runs, adding to his team’s advance to the fall baseball league. In particular, he had the honor of being 20 home runs and the second 20 home runs in his career in five years after 26 home runs in the 2018 season when he played for Doosan.
However, there was no more opportunity to give him within SSG, which pressed the rebuilding button, and he had to suffer the pain of being excluded from the 35 protective players. But Kiwoom can be a land of opportunity for him. Not only the main position second base, but also the first baseman and designated hitter are used in various ways. Kim Hye-sung, the main second baseman, can see second base when he needs to rest.
Kiwoom didn’t have a single batter who hit double-digit home runs this season. The eight home runs recorded by Kim Hwi-jip were the most home runs. Choi Joo-hwan, who hit 115 home runs in his professional career and hit 20 home runs this season, will certainly be a big boost to Kiwoom preparing for next season. Choi Joo-hwan is a veteran with a batting average of 0.279 1048 hits, 115 homers, 594 RBIs and 513 runs in 1,268 professional games.
Choi Joo-hwan said through the club, I was surprised that the decision was made suddenly. I’ve received a lot of calls. I’m trying to adapt well as I’m joining the new club, he said, Personally, next year is an important year, so I want to do well and become a player who contributes to my team. After the transfer to Kiwoom was confirmed, he received a call from Lee Won-seok, and Lee Won-seok and Choi Joo-hwan were first-year seniors and juniors at Hakgang Elementary School, Gwangju Dongsung Middle School, and Gwangju Dongsung High School, and they once shared a room with Doosan. Choi Joo-hwan said, Won-seok is a year senior in elementary, middle, and high school. He called me after the transfer was confirmed. He said, “We’re meeting again, so let’s do well together.
