He said of Lee Jae-won, “If he explodes, he is a player who will explode.” He said, “I think he is a beast on the verge of bursting with potential in many ways, such as his physical condition and hitting mechanism. I believe he will grow quickly if he trains through various data. revealed
In fact, Lee Jae-won, along with bullpen pitcher Lee Jung-yong in the team last winter, applied for the position of managing director, but withdrew it.
