Austin + Kelly Year Lim Chan-kyu + Ham Deok-ju Remaining… Preparations for ‘Unified 2 consecutive losses’ are going smoothly

So far, there has been no leak of the “winning member” in the winter. The LG Twins, which won the unified championship for the first time in 29 years, are making smooth preparations for “the dynasty” and its beginning, “two consecutive losses.”

LG announced on Christmas Eve on the 24th that it signed a contract with Ham Deok-ju for a total of 3.8 billion won, including a four-year contract of 600 million won, an annual salary of 1.4 billion won, and incentives of 1.8 billion won. LG, which announced the contract three days ago and also re-signed Casey Kelly and Austin Dean earlier, crossed the eighth ridge of the “House Rabbit Crackdown,” which was the most important task during the winter.

Austin Dean signed a 2024 season contract for a total of $1.3 million with a down payment of $300,000, an annual salary of $800,000, and incentives of $200,000. Austin Dean, who joined the LG Twins and entered the KBO League ahead of this season, came out of 139 games with a batting average of 0.313, 163 hits (fourth), 23 home runs (third), 95 RBIs (third), the most in the league, and won the Golden Glove in the first baseman category.

After renewing his contract with Austin, Cha Myung-seok, the general manager, said, “Austin is a player who has clearly shown his role in achieving the LG Twins’ unified victory this season, and is essential to our team. He is a great player not only in his skills but also in his personality. As he has gained experience in the KBO league and has adapted, he expects to continue to play well next year.”헤라카지노

He also signed with Casey Kelly immediately afterwards. “We agreed with Kelly to sign a contract for the 2024 season for a total of 1.5 million U.S. dollars (down payment of 400,000 dollars, annual salary of 800,000 dollars, incentive of 300,000 dollars),” LG said on Nov. 23, six days after the renewal of his contract with Austin. The renewal makes Kelly the longest-serving foreign pitcher in his team who plays for six seasons.

Upon joining LG in the 2019 season, Kelly displayed stellar performance as the team’s ace. He pitched 180 ⅓ innings in 29 games, and was among the top starting pitchers in the league with 14 wins, 12 losses and an earned run average of 2.55, which helped LG advance to the postseason as the fourth-ranked team in the regular season.

In the 2020 season, he pitched 173 ⅓ innings in 28 games with 15 wins, 7 losses and a 3.32 ERA, and in the 2021 season, he played 177 innings in 30 games, showing unchanged performance with 13 wins, 8 losses and a 3.15 ERA. Last year, he spent the best year of his career on the mound of 27 games and 166 ⅓ innings, winning the title of most wins with 16 wins, 4 losses and a 2.54 ERA.

In this year’s regular season, which was the fifth season of the KBO, he played a total of 178 ⅔ in 30 games, winning 10-7 with a 3.83 ERA, contributing to his first win in 29 years. In the Korean Series, he played the role of ace perfectly by allowing two runs (one earned run) in six ⅓ and one run in five innings, respectively, as starting pitchers in Game 1 and Game 5.

Lim Chan-gyu started the internal FA league. On Monday, three days before the announcement of the contract with Lim, LG said it signed a four-year contract with Lim for a total of 5 billion won, including 600 million won for a four-year contract, 2 billion won for an annual salary, and 2.4 billion won for incentives.

Lim became an FA after the end of last season, but chose to become a “recruiter.” Lim became a “one of the best” choice. In this season’s 30 games and 144 ⅔ innings, Lim posted an ERA of 3.42 and recorded the most wins among Korean pitchers with 14 wins, 3 losses and 1 hold.

Lim Chan-kyu has firmly defended the LG mound since the beginning of the season, when LG had difficulties in operation due to sluggish performance and injury of other pitchers. He led his team’s unified championship for the first time in 29 years, including taking the mound in the Korean Series for the first time in his career, and hit the FA jackpot, which was a perfect season both for the team and for the individual.

In the FA contract, half of the total amount was incentivized to ensure a healthier and more consistent performance for the season. The same applies to Ham Deok-ju.

Having experienced the “taste” of winning the championship, the team is shouting “building a dynasty.” The winter of the “champion” LG is going smoothly, given that more than half of the players make up their power in the offseason. If veteran infielder Kim Min-sung, one of the remaining internal FA players, remains intact, and the team can start the new season with joy and experience of winning the title.
