Oh Seung-hwan (41, Samsung), the ‘end boss’, chose to leave blank.
Samsung announced on the 11th that ‘Oh Seung-hwan has entrusted the club with a 2023 annual salary contract’.
The club said, “Oh Seung-hwan, as the team’s oldest player, is responsible for the performance of the team that did not advance to the postseason, as well as the club’s intention to entrust the salary for 2023 with the meaning of the white army for the individual and team rebound this season. delivered,’ he explained.
Oh Seung-hwan finished the season with a record of 6 wins, 2 losses, 31 saves, and an average ERA of 3.32, despite his age. He struggled for a while in the middle of the season, briefly giving up a finishing position, but soon found his pace.
Oh Seung-hwan’s salary blank commission is close to ‘one step back in order to take two steps forward’. In the current atmosphere, the possibility of a cut is higher than a salary freeze, and rather than continuing a tight tug-of-war, the intention is to leave the salary contract to the club and concentrate on baseball, achieving good results this season and gaining an advantage at the off-season negotiation table.
A player who had entrusted the club with an annual salary blank in the past said, “Salary is set by the club anyway. In fact, every player wants to get a lot of salary and negotiates. I also wanted to get a little more,” he said. I didn’t want to stress too much with the negotiations,” he said.
He also said, “I think there are many things I enjoy while playing baseball. I thought that if I persevered a little longer 스포츠토토, good days would come. I wanted to invest time in negotiating my salary,” he added.
The same should be said of Oh Seung-hwan. Having entrusted the club with a blank salary contract, he prepared for this season early. Since the 10th, he has been undergoing personal training in Okinawa, Japan. He was the first Samsung player to join the camp.
He said, “Last year, I had a ridiculous losing streak, so I just think that I have to do well this season. I have to make up for the disappointment of last year this season.”
He continued, “I think this season is important. If the grades are bad, there will definitely be more talk about age. I am about to reach 500 saves in Korea, the US and Japan, and 400 saves in my personal career, and I want to put an end to concerns about my age. To that end, performance And you have to prove it sexually,” he emphasized.
If the team also gives utmost consideration to Oh Seung-hwan, who made a great choice, it would be a good thing for a sister and a good brother-in-law.
