I couldn’t narrow my differences. Doosan, Kim Jae-ho, and Kim Jae-ho will make progress on the 8
So far, differences have not narrowed.”
Doosan Bears and FA infielder Kim Jae-ho (36) are scheduled to set up a negotiation table on Tuesday. Doosan and Kim Jae-ho met at the club’s office twice on the 7th and 15th of last month and exchanged opinions on the phone afterwards, but failed to find a point of contact. It is known that there is a difference in the amount rather than the contract period 토토사이트
A Doosan official said, “There is something difficult to talk about over the phone, so I am planning to meet with Kim Jae-ho on the 8th. So far, differences have not narrowed.
When Kim Jae-ho first qualified for the FA after the 2016 season, Doosan gave him the highest treatment ever for an FA shortstop, giving him 5 billion won for four years. However, it is not easy to give another large sum of money to a 36-year-old player this year.
Kim Jae-ho may have different ideas. While playing as an unwavering starting shortstop from 2014 to last year, no junior player has grown enough to threaten his position. Even if the team manages its physical strength in the future, it will have to attract its juniors for two to three years. Contracts with veteran players usually serve as a stumbling block, but Kim Jae-ho’s case is a little different.
Doosan was a big hand in the FA market. Although there were bleeding when infielders Choi Joo-hwan and Oh Jae-il were given to SK and Samsung respectively, they succeeded in catching infielder Heo Kyung-min (4+3 years 8.5 billion won) and outfielder Jung Soo-bin (6 years and 5.6 billion won). The move was completely different from the expectation that he would be passive due to the team’s worsening finances.
Some say that Kim Jae-ho may have come to see more than what he decided to do before opening the store while watching his colleagues’ contracts. However, Kim Jae-ho does not have a competitive team like the WINNER. It is inevitable that Doosan’s offer will rise significantly.
In the end, it is a matter of how much he will be treated as a franchise star. Still, Kim Jae-ho is considered to be the mainstay of the Doosan infield with Huh Kyung-min. Kim Jae-ho is also determined to “make efforts to maintain my competitiveness until my juniors grow up.” Can Doosan and Kim Jae-ho find a point of contact and announce the results of their progress as soon as possible?
