“Please!” the captain pleaded…Oh Seung-hwan, a free agent signing, what’s going on?


“I want to appeal!”

Samsung “Captain” Koo Ja-rook, 30, was the only member of the team to win a Golden Glove. “We’ve made a ‘comeback’ this season. Next year is important. And he said the players he needs. Oh Seung-hwan (41).

Oh Seung-hwan is one of Samsung’s internal free agents. He became eligible for free agency after the 2023 season, along with Kim Dae-woo and Kang Han-ul, and exercised his rights. This is his first KBO free agency due to his overseas expansion.

News of the contract is still out. A Samsung representative said, “Lee Jong-yeol and our negotiators are continuing to meet. We have confirmed that we need each other. It’s not a situation that can be called an impasse. We just need a little more time.”

Another official said, “Oh Seung-hwan is negotiating directly without an agent. They have met several times. They are sharing their thoughts. I think he has a personal schedule, and he had planned to go to Okinawa first in January. It’s the end of the year, so I don’t know what’s going to happen, but we’ll do our best to finalize it.”

Both Samsung and Oh Seung-hwan are in agreement. “If there was no team called Samsung, there would be no baseball player called Oh Seung-hwan,” Oh said. Even after becoming a free agent, he continues to work out at Daegu Samsung Lions Park.

His numbers speak for themselves. In 2023, he pitched 58 games and 62.2 innings with a 4-5 record, two shutouts, 30 saves, and a 3.45 ERA. In the second half of the year, he had 20 saves and a 2.20 ERA.

With a weak bullpen, Samsung needs Oh Seung-hwan the most. And there is another person who emphasized the need for Oh Seung-hwan. “Captain” Koo Ja-rook. “I really want to appeal to him, he’s a legend, we need him,” he said.

Koo took home the golden glove in the outfielder category at the 2023 KBO Golden Glove Awards on Nov. 11 at the COEX Auditorium in Gangnam-gu, Seoul. He is the only winner from Samsung. 랭크카지노

He said, “With the arrival of manager Lee Jong-yeol, we are changing a lot of systems within the team. He is a baseball person. I think I can approach him comfortably. I wonder if we can talk about baseball. I heard that he studied a lot. Even though it’s the off-season, he’s trying so hard to help us, and we have to do it accordingly.”
