Salary adjustment loss, WBC also eliminated… Choi Ji-man and PIT, it’s embarrassing

 Choi Ji-man (32) continued his awkward streak with his team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.

American media including reported on the 18th (Korean time) that ‘Choi Ji-man lost to his team Pittsburgh in the salary adjustment hearing’. Choi Ji-man wanted an annual salary of $5.4 million (7 billion won) this year, and Pittsburgh claimed $4.65 million (6 billion won), but the hearing judged that Pittsburgh’s claim was more reasonable.

Even in salary negotiations in 2022, Choi Ji-man had the experience of going to a hearing without being able to narrow the disagreement with his former team, the Tampa Bay Race. At the time, the hearing raised his hand to the annual salary of 3.2 million dollars (4.1 billion won) requested by Choi Ji-man, but he could not convince the hearing for two consecutive years.

Choi Ji-man has been constantly making noise since he was traded to Pittsburgh in November last year. Choi Ji-man was eliminated from the 2023 World Baseball Classic national team due to Pittsburgh’s opposition, and also confronted the club during the salary negotiation process.

Regarding the opposition to the selection of the national team, the Pittsburgh general manager and coach explained that it was a decision to manage Choi Ji-man, who underwent elbow surgery after last season, but Choi did not hide his disappointment. 카지노

When Pittsburgh first recruited Choi Ji-man, there were more positive voices saying that they had brought in first baseman and dugout leader. However, even before wearing the Pittsburgh uniform properly, the voice of concern is coming out little by little as the situation repeatedly colliding with the club.
