A big hand has been raised. The New York Mets, led by commuter billionaire owner Steve Cohen, are interested in signing Lee Jung-hoo, 25.
The New York Mets have expressed interest in signing outfielder Jung-Hoo Lee, who is looking to bolster their outfield, according to USA Today.
The New York Mets join the New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, and San Diego Padres in their initial interest. Lee’s popularity is palpable.
Lee’s major league posts are expected to begin as early as the 5th. Once Lee’s post officially starts, there could be more teams interested in signing him.
Lee’s major league posting will be open for 30 days. If Lee doesn’t sign with a major league team during this time, he will have to wait until the following year.
However, the chances of this happening are very slim, as several major league clubs have shown strong interest and Lee is willing to come to the United States.
In seven years of professional baseball in South Korea, Lee batted .340 with 65 home runs, 515 RBI, 581 runs scored, 1,081 hits, a .407 OPS and an .898 slugging percentage in 884 games. 토토사이트
Before entering the major leagues, Lee has made all the preparations, including appointing Scott Boras, a super agent, as his representative.
Meanwhile, the outlet noted that the New York Mets are all-in on Yoshinobu Yamamoto and have no interest in Juan Soto and Blake Snell.
