Hanwha announced the contract news with 10 2024 rookies on the 24th. Expectations were high on how much down payment Hwang Joon-seo, the first nominee in the first round, would receive. In the rookie draft held on the 14th, general manager Son Hyuk selected Hwang Joon-seo as the first choice without hesitation.

In the future, I thought I would be a more desired pitcher,” he said, revealing the background of the nomination. 안전 토토사이트

Hwang Joon-seo, who received a Hanwha hat and uniform from general manager Son and wore it, said, “I still can’t believe it. “I’m so happy that my hands and feet are shaking,” he said without hiding his emotion. He laughed about how he felt wearing the uniform, saying, “I think it suits you well,” and then greeted his parents who visited the venue that day, saying, “I’ve been grateful for eight years of baseball.” “I will always do my best and become a necessary player for the team,” he said.

Hwang Joon-seo, who stands at 1m 87, was noted as the best pitcher in high school. In 15 games this year, he recorded 6 wins, 2 losses and a 2.16 ERA. He struck out 58 while throwing 49 ⅔ innings, and only 17 four outs. It is evaluated that the breaking ball is also excellent with a fast ball over 150km per hour. When Jang Hyun-seok (Yongma High School) signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers and challenged the big league, he became the No. 1 overall candidate.

Hanwha gave a down payment of 500 million won to Moon Dong-ju, who joined last year, and 500 million won to Kim Seo-hyun, who joined this year. Cho Dong-wook (Jang Choong-go, pitcher), a second-round pick, signed a seal for 150 million won. Cho Dong-wook was recognized for his high growth potential as a left-hander who used various breaking balls. Third-round pick Jeong An-seok (Whimoon High School, infielder) signed for 100 million won. Like Hwang Joon-seo, Jeong An-seok, a former member of the youth national team, is considered a right-handed left-handed player with both offense and defense skills.

In addition, Hwang Young-mook (Yeoncheon Miracle, infielder) signed a contract for 80 million won in the fourth round, Lee Ki-chang (Yushin-ho, pitcher) in the fifth round and Choi Jun-seo (Dongguk University, outfielder) in the sixth round for 60 million won, and Lee Seung-hyun (Gyeongbuk High School, catcher) in the eighth round for 40 million won. *Round 7 is traded for nomination rights Won Jong-hyuk (in-house and pitcher), Kwon Hyun (Jang Chung-go and outfielder), and Seung Ji-hwan (Yushin-ho and pitcher), who were nominated in the 9th to 11th rounds, will receive a down payment of 30 million won.

Jung Min-hyuk, head of the Hanwha Eagles scout team, said, “We quickly carried out contracts so that new players could focus on preparing for their first professional season. I would like to thank the players and parents for their cooperation, he said. “I sincerely look forward to growing into players who can represent the Hanwha Eagles.”
