Major League official website ‘MLB.com’ also mentioned Lee Jeong-hoo (25, Kiwoom Heroes) today (11th).
MLB.com selected the best players for each position in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) on the 11th (Korean time). MLB.com introduced the players, “The WBC, which will be held in six years, is just around the corner. Star players from all over the world, who are called the best in the history of the tournament, have gathered. Who will be the best among them?”
The pitcher was selected as a right-handed starting pitcher and a left-handed starting relief pitcher. A total of 13 players, including catcher, infielder, outfielder, and pitching player, were named on this list. 슬롯사이트
The most noteworthy is Lee Jung-hoo, the only non-major leaguer. If Lee Jung-hoo fills the 2023 season with the first group registration days (145 days), he will qualify for the posting system (private competitive bidding). Although Lee Jung-hoo’s advance to the major leagues has yet to be confirmed, there are many positive factors.
Lee Jung-hoo’s original team, Kiwoom, has promised to actively support his overseas expansion. Also, many major league scouts are showing interest by visiting Tucson, Arizona, USA, where Lee Jung-hoo’s team spree camp is located. Lee Jung-hoo’s advance into the big leagues is highly likely to be regarded as a matter of time.
MLB.com said, “Lee Jeong-hoo is not the best outfielder to play in this WBC, but he is one of the most interesting players in the group stage. He is the MVP of the KBO League with an on-base percentage of 0.421 and an on-base percentage of 0.575.”
He added, “Kiwoom said it would respect Lee Jung-hoo’s request for a posting system. The WBC will be an international stage for Lee Jung-hoo to introduce himself to the world, and this will be an interesting prospect.”
Recently, MLB.com is mentioning Lee Jung-hoo without mentioning it. Starting with the announcement of the final WBC roster in each country, each WBC feature article, such as player introductions and notable pitching matchups, continues to talk about Lee Jeong-hoo.
Even before Lee Jung-hoo’s 2023 season begins, constant interest is pouring into the major leagues. As MLB.com’s ‘After 1 Day 1’ continues, attention is focused on whether he will be able to prove himself in international competitions.
