“There is a symbol of being the first”… ‘Express contract’ that surprised even Engu 

 “I have at least two years left until free agency, but it is symbolic and emotional because it is the first case of a non-FA multi-year contract.”

NC Dinos pitcher Koo Chang-mo (25) signed a multi-year contract as the first player in the KBO League to have more than two seasons left before obtaining FA qualification.

On the 17th, NC announced a multi-year contract with pitcher Chang-mo Koo (25) through a press release. The terms of the contract were divided into two cases in consideration of the fact that the period of obtaining FA qualification for Koo Chang-mo varies depending on the performance of the 2023 international competition. When obtaining FA qualification after the end of the 2024 season, the contract period is six years from 2023 to 2028, with an annual salary of 9 billion won and an incentive of 3.5 billion won, totaling 12.5 billion won.

If FA qualification is not obtained after the end of the 2024 season, the contract period is 6+1 years from 2023 to 2029, and the maximum amount is KRW 13.2 billion, including incentives and the execution of the contract for the 7th year, with a guaranteed annual salary of KRW 8.8 billion for 6 years. . It also included a clause extending the contract period by the corresponding period when enlisting in the military. 토토사이트

Lim Seon-nam, NC general manager, said, “I am happy to promise to accompany Gu Chang-mo, our team’s franchise player and the league’s leading left-handed starting pitcher, for up to 7 seasons. Chang-mo Koo has consistently shown a serious attitude and sincerity toward baseball since he was a rookie. I went through time, but I overcame it with strong mental strength, and this year, when I returned healthy, I led the starting lineup with the appearance of a native ace,” he said. There have been several changes, and the squad is getting younger. As a key member of the team’s starting lineup, as well as a senior player, I expect him to play a positive role on and off the field in the future.”

In an interview with Spotify News after signing a multi-year contract, Koo Chang-mo said, “I have at least two years left until free agency, but it is the first case to sign a multi-year contract, so it is symbolic and emotional.”
