The LG Twins concluded an annual salary contract with veteran right-hander Song Eun-beom (39).
On the 12th, LG announced that it had signed a contract with Song Eun-beom for an annual salary of 140 million won. Right before spring camp, all players except Song Eun-beom have renewed their annual salary contracts. As a result, LG has 카지노사이트completed contracts with all 45 contract renewal targets this year.
It took some time to conclude salary negotiations with Song Eun-beom. This is because the conditions desired by the club and the players were clearly different. The club proposed a cut, but it was difficult for Song Eun-beom to accept.
Song Eun-beom recorded 1 win, 1 loss, 1 hold, and ERA of 4.05 in 25 games last year. It was because of an injury that he, who has been active as a bullpen pitcher, has not been able to play in many games. During the 2021 season, he suffered a torn cruciate ligament in his knee. He went through surgery and rehabilitation, so he needed time to return. He was able to return to the first team only in the second half of last year. Fortunately, he helped the team finish second in the regular season. However, the salary negotiation table was cold. Eventually, after a long tug-of-war, he signed for an amount that was 10 million won lower than last year.
Since 2019, Song Eun-beom has played a variety of roles in the LG bullpen, which is dominated by young players. The veteran with a lot of experience took the mound regardless of the situation and added strength to the bullpen. It is not a key resource, but thanks to his persistence, the LG bullpen did not collapse easily. The same goes for the 2023 season. Many of the LG bullpen resources are expected to be selected for the national team, so Song Eun-beom is expected to play a significant role.
Although the salary contract has been delayed, it seems that there will be no major setbacks in Song Eun-beom’s preparation for the season. It is known that during the negotiations, he trained normally at the spring camp in District 2, Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, and built up his body.
