JUNG HOO LEE AND GIANTS AGREE TO SIX-YEAR, $113M CONTRACT




The Giants have made their first splash of the MLB offseason. Korean outfielder Jung Hoo Lee has agreed to a six-year, $113 million free-agent contract with an opt-out after the fourth year. As The Athletic's Andrew Baggarly pointed out, Lee's $113 million contract does not include a roughly $19 million posting fee San Francisco will pay Lee's former team, the Kiwoom Heroes. Lee officially was posted on Dec. 4, opening his 30-day window to sign with an MLB team. The 25-year-old center fielder won the KBO MVP award in 2022 with the Kiwoom Heroes after batting .349/.421/.575 with 23 home runs, 113 RBI and a .996 OPS. Lee hit .318/.406/.455 with six homers and 45 RBI in 86 games in 2023 before an ankle injury ended his season in July. Lee, nicknamed the "Grandson of the Wind," is a former shortstop who transitioned to center field in 2017 and has won five consecutive Gold Glove awards. He's the son of Jong Beom Lee, a legendary shortstop who played 20 combined seasons in the KBO and NPB in Japan.
