LG veteran right pitcher Song Eun-beom (38) agreed on the size of the annual salary for 2023. He was the only non-contractor, but decided to accept the club’s offer, which was 10 million won less than last year, and LG concluded salary negotiations with all pending players.
On the 12th (Korean time), an official from the LG club in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, where the LG 1st team camp is in progress, said, “We reached an agreement with Song Eun-beom on the size of the annual salary. He said, “After signing, Song Eun-beom will join the Icheon 1st team camp to prepare for the season.” Song Eun-beom’s annual salary this year is 140 million won, a 10 million won cut from last year’s 150 million won.
Song Eun-beom, who suffered a knee cruciate ligament rupture injury during defense in the middle of the 2021 season, returned to the first team stage at the end of July last year. He pitched 25 games, 26.2 innings, and had an earned run average of 4.05. He was likely to join the postseason entry, but he felt discomfort in his calf at the end of the regular season, so he could not stand on the baseball stage last fall. 안전놀이터
He is a proven pitcher. From the second half of 2019 when he moved to LG, he played an all-weather role in the bullpen. He went back and forth between Long Relief and Pilseung Group, and took a spot in LG’s mighty bullpen with his skillful pitching.
However, as time goes by and young pitchers grow, Song Eun-beom is also expected to face internal competition. Currently, right pitchers Kang Hyo-jong, Ko Woo-seok, Kim Dae-hyun, Kim Jin-seong, Park Myeong-geun, Bae Jae-joon, Baek Seung-hyun, Seong Dong-hyun, Yoo Young-chan, Yun Ho-sol, Lee Min-ho, Lee Jung-yong, Lee Ji-gang, Lim Chan-gyu, Jung Woo-young, Choi Dong-hwan, Kelly, and Plutko are participating in the LG 1st team camp. . Of these, except for Kang Hyo-jong, Kim Dae-hyun, Lee Min-ho, Lim Chan-gyu, Kelly, and Plutko, all are middle pitchers.
It is Song Eun-beom who has to overcome tough internal competition in order to enter the limited entry.
