Shim Jun-seok, a top-notch Korean rookie, made a splendid feat by advancing to the major leagues.
On the 16th (Korean time), MLB.com, a local US media outlet, reported, “The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to join Shim Jun-seok, who is ranked 10th in the international prospect rankings.”
“Shim Jun-seok is a pitcher with excellent physical condition (193 cm, 98 kg) and has excellent control ability. It reminds me of Park Chan-ho,” he evaluated. 토토사이트
Shim Jun-seok was one of the best pitchers in high school. From his freshman year at Deoksu High School, he caught the attention of major league scouts by throwing a fast ball that reached 150 km/h.
Since then, he has been dreaming of going to the major leagues without participating in this rookie draft, and finally his contract was concluded.
The exact amount of the contract has not been announced, but multiple local media are expecting a contract of more than 3 million dollars.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has a large number of Korean players, including Shim Jun-seok, Choi Ji-man, and Bae Ji-hwan.
