Lee Jung-hoo, ‘Home Run King’ and One-Piece…SF, Solaire sign a three-year contract

February 14, 2024 0 Comments

Lee Jung-hoo’s team, the San Francisco Giants, has signed Jorge Soler, the “Cuban Express.”

“Veteran outfielder Soler, who has spent the past two seasons with the Miami Marlins, has agreed to a three-year contract with San Francisco.” The total annual salary is known to be 42 million dollars (about 56.1 billion won), with options reaching 9 million dollars (about 12 billion won).

Solaire has a .243 batting average, 170 homers and 452 RBIs in 870 games since entering the majors in 2014. He won the American League with 48 homers in the 2019 season while playing for the Kansas City Royals.

Solaire later played well with the Atlanta Braves in the 2021 World Series, batting .300, three homers and six RBIs, and even won the MVP award. He was selected as the first All-Star in the 2023 season with a batting average of 0.250, 36 homers, 75 RBIs, a slugging percentage of 0.512, and an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of 0.853.

San Francisco Giants, which ranked 19th out of 30 Major League teams with 174 home runs last year, made up for its weaknesses by banking on its “Solar.” San Francisco has added sophistication by recruiting Lee Jung-hoo from the Stove League this time. With the recruitment of “Solar,” its core lineup has been strengthened.

San Francisco lost its biggest fish this winter, Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto. In particular, the team was completely defeated in the recruitment match against the Los Angeles Dodgers, its “Earth rival.” However, the team later acquired Lee Jung-hoo and Soler, and brought in 2021 American League Cy Young Award winner Robbie Ray and Jordan Hicks, who recorded 12 saves with 13 holds last year, to strengthen his team’s performance.

Meanwhile, San Francisco will play the opening game of the exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs on the 25th. 와이즈토토
