‘Kim Kang-min-Noh Kyung-eun’, the last two in salary negotiations… SSG leader “We just need to make a little concession to each other”
The 2023 SSG Landers team salary contract is coming to an end. Only 2 left. The targets are veteran batter Kim Kang-min (41) and pitcher Noh Kyung-eun (39).
SSG has been negotiating salaries with the players since the end of last year. In the future, if only Kim Kang-min and Roh Kyung-eun sign, the 2023 team salary negotiations will be completed. Kim Kang-min and Roh Kyung-eun have some differences between the players and the team, but they try to finish well.
Kim Seong-yong, the new general manager, said, “Roh Kyung-eun is negotiating with her agent. Kim Kang-min asked to meet him. He tries to meet and talk. We just need to make some concessions to each other,” he explained the progress.
Kim Kang-min and Noh Kyung-eun were the players who contributed greatly to SSG winning the combined championship last year 토토사이트. Kim Kang-min and Roh Kyung-eun were born in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and despite their considerable age, they showed their strength at bat and on the mound.
Kim Kang-min recorded a batting average of 3.3, 5 home runs and 18 RBIs in 84 regular season games. He didn’t appear in many games as a starter, but he showed the value of a veteran when needed. Above all, he became the MVP with two decisive home runs on the stage of the Korean Series.
In 2022, while playing as SSG Man, Noh Kyung-eun recorded 12 wins, 5 losses, 1 save and 7 holds, and an average ERA of 3.05 in 41 games. He boasted an incredible physical condition since he was at the age of looking at Bulguk from the camp.
With his thorough self-management, he became an example to his juniors. During the season, he was hit by a bat and injured, so he had a hiatus, but he did his part by going back and forth between starting and rescuing. In particular, the fact that Noh Kyung-eun blocked the back door well was a great help in defending the first place in the second half of the season.
Kim Kang-min received an annual salary of 160 million won last year, and Roh Kyung-eun received 100 million won. Although they have not yet been able to stamp their seal on the salary negotiation table, the club wants the two players to accompany them without any problems. He is approaching with caution as he is the main player in winning the KBO’s first ‘Wire-to-Wire’ regular season last year and winning the Korean Series.
