On the 6th, the KBO newly selected SSG Landers outfielder Choi Ji-hoon, excluding Choi Ji-man, who was originally selected for the WBC national team. Choi Ji-man, who desperately wanted the Taegeuk mark, ended up facing opposition from the Pittsburgh club.
Choi Ji-man underwent surgery to remove bone fragments in his right elbow in November of last year, and Pittsburgh took issue with it and opposed Choi’s participation in the WBC. In the end, the WBC Organizing Committee (WBCI) sided with the Pittsburgh club. Through the injury review committee, Choi Ji-man was judged not to participate in the WBC.
Choi Ji-man, whose participation in the WBC was ultimately canceled, did not hide his disappointment. “I don’t know how happy I was when I was included in the preliminary list for the WBC national team this time. But maybe it was because my expectations were high. The disappointment and frustration with the decision to not be accepted is also very great,” said Choi Ji-man, “I underwent elbow surgery, which the team is concerned about, but returned to the United States and returned to normal. The rehabilitation process was going well, and recently there was no problem enough to proceed with live betting. I was very disappointed because I was improving my physical condition well in line with the schedule for the first round in Tokyo as well as joining the national team scheduled for mid-month. It’s big, it hurts,” he confessed his feelings.
Choi Ji-man has one more thing to tie up with the Pittsburgh club. It’s just a salary contract. Choi Ji-man requested an annual salary of 5.4 million dollars, while Pittsburgh offered 4.65 million dollars, and no agreement was reached. The ‘Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’ predicted, “Choi Ji-man’s salary adjustment committee is expected to be held at the latest. Pittsburgh’s first full squad training is on February 20. It is unlikely that they will reach an agreement before then.”
