Professional baseball KT wiz (hereafter referred to as KT) hitter Kang Baek-ho turned on a red flag in salary negotiations one day before leaving for spring camp.
On the 28th, KT said, “We are sharing opinions with Kang Baek-ho and will finalize the negotiations before leaving the country.”
It is no exaggeration to say that Kang Baek-ho had the worst season since his professional debut in the 2022 season due to injuries. In March of last year he suffered a fractured little toe and in July suffered a hamstring injury.
He appeared in just 62 games, hitting single-digit home runs (six) since his professional debut, and had just 29 RBIs. He also broke his single-season batting average record since his debut season. He hit 0.290 last year in 2018, and he hit 0.245 in 2022. 먹튀검증
Each team negotiates an annual salary with the players according to the annual salary calculation system, and KT also sets Kang Baek-ho’s annual salary this year based on the results of the 2022 season.
Kang Baek-ho, who received an annual salary of 550 million won in the previous year, cannot avoid the high pain of an annual salary cut this year. However, Kang Baek-ho is said to have failed to accept the cuts offered by the club.
So far, only Kang Baek-ho among the players has not been successful in negotiating the salary. If Kang Baek-ho does not accept salary negotiations until the end, there is a possibility that he will not board the plane to the United States.
The team expressed their position that they would persuade Kang Baek-ho as much as possible and finish the negotiations safely before leaving the country.
Meanwhile, KT will depart for Arizona, USA, where the spring camp will be held at 2:30 pm on the 29th.
