A total of 22 players got new opportunities at the nomination ceremony, which was revived after four years. Kiwoom, Hanwha, Samsung and KT nominated the most three players each, while defending champion LG and autumn baseball teams SSG and NC lost four players. 토토사이트 Amid shocking news such as the transfer of Kim Kang-min, who played as a one club man for 22 years, Kiwoom, who exercised the No. 1 nomination right, and Samsung, which succeeded in reinforcing the so-called net, smiled satisfactorily.
Kiwoom’s choice, which has the first overall pick, was veteran left-handed infielder Choi Joo-hwan. Choi Joo-hwan was the big fish that multiple clubs considered recruiting as their top priority since the 35-member protected player list was submitted, and his name was eventually called first.
Choi Joo-hwan, who had a sluggish year with a batting average of 0.2119 home runs and 41 RBIs in 97 games in the 2022 season, still showed his ability to hit long balls by hitting 20 home runs for the first time in six seasons this year. However, as SSG took a remodeling stance under the appointment of new coach Lee Sung-yong, Choi Joo-hwan will also be on a new starting line.
