SSG’s Jeon Eui-san recorded the club’s highest salary increase rate in the 2023 season. Can Jeon Eui-san, whose potential has been recognized, hit a bigger jackpot next season?

SSG Landers announced on the 24th that “We have completed an annual salary contract with all 49 people who are subject to renewal in 2023.” Choi Ji-hoon, who recorded a batting average of 30% for the first time since his professional debut last season, signed a 100% increase to 300 million won, and Park Seong-han, who played an active role as a starting shortstop, signed a 92.9% increase to 270 million won.

Although they are not billionaires like them, there is a player who recorded a remarkable salary increase rate. It is the mountain of the former. Jeon Eui-san, who joined SK Wyverns, the predecessor of SSG, with the 10th overall in the 2nd round of the 2020 rookie draft, received an annual salary of 30 million won last season. However, ahead of this season, Jeon Eui-san signed a contract with an annual salary of 90 million won, a 200% increase. This is the highest salary increase rate in the SSG team this season.

Ahead of last season, SSG recruited Kevin Kron as a foreign hitter to replace the retired Jamie Romac. However, Cron did not show his strength in the KBO league. He went 25 hits in 98 at-bats with 4 home runs and 17 RBIs in April with a batting average of 0.255 and 26 hits with 7 home runs and 18 RBIs in 104 at-bats in May with a batting average of 0.250. But in June, Crohn completely collapsed. In his first six games in June, he was expunged from the first-team entry after a poor 1-for-23 performance.

The player who filled the vacancy of Cron was Jeon Eui-san. Although he joined in 2020, Jeon Eui-san, who had no chance in the first team stage, stepped on the first team stage for the first time. Jeon’s San hit a double against the Changwon NC Dinos on June 8, his first team debut, and hit his first home run in 5 games of his debut. Eui-san Jeon played his part perfectly, recording 22 hits in 66 at-bats, 3 homers, 17 RBIs, a batting average of 0.333, and an OPS of 1.002 in June.

Jeon Eui-san’s performance continued until the end of the first half. Jeon Eui-san finished the first half with 31 hits in 91 at-bats, 7 homers, 24 RBIs, a batting average of 0.341 and an OPS of 1.099. While Eui-san Jeon was active, Cron was released and outfielder Juan Lagares was recruited as a new foreign hitter. Jeon Eui-san perfectly filled the vacancy of Cron, who was the first baseman, and SSG was able to select an outfielder as a new foreign hitter. 안전놀이터

However, the second half of Jeon Uisan was not good. In the second half, Eui-san Jeon recorded 29 hits in 150 at-bats, 6 homers, 21 RBIs, a batting average of 0.193 OPS and 0.612, and could not continue the momentum of the first half. There were also many mistakes in the defensive scene. When Jeon Ui-san fell into sluggishness, SSG made a new choice. Choe Joo-hwan, who was a second baseman, was appointed as the first baseman, or Oh Tae-gon, who can defend the outfield and first base, kept the first base. Eui-san Jeon finished the season with 60 hits in 241 at-bats, 13 homers, 45 RBIs, a batting average of 0.249 OPS and 0.797 errors.

Nevertheless, Jeon Eui-san received an annual salary of 90 million won with a 200% increase in annual salary. It means that SSG saw the potential of Jeon Ui Mountain. Attention is focusing on whether Jeon Ui-san, who was recognized for his worth by showing potential last season, will be able to hit the jackpot this season. Jeon Eui-san leaves to participate in the spring camp held in Florida, USA on the 30th. Ahead of the new season, he sets out to temper to come back in a better shape.
