‘Dodgers-bound’ Jang Hyun-seok gets US interest…”He has huge potential”

Masan Yongmago right-hander Jang Hyun-seok (19)카지노 has signed a contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the local US team is showing interest in him, saying he has “considerable potential”.

‘Dodger Blue’, which mainly covers Dodger news, highlighted the news of Jang’s signing on the 10th (KST).

“It is unlikely that Jang will be in the top 10 of the Dodgers’ prospect rankings,” the outlet said, “but he has tremendous potential and could quickly climb the ranks once he starts pitching in the pros.”

He also quoted ESPN commentator Daniel Kim as saying, “If Jang Hyun-seok had entered the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, he would have been selected in the second or third round,” adding, “He’s the best unsigned international prospect.”

Jang Hyun-seok signed with the Dodgers on the 9th of this month for a signing bonus of $900,000 (approximately KRW 1.19 billion).

Jang, who was rated as the “biggest name” in the KBO’s rookie draft this season, travelled to the United States.

He throws a hard-hitting fastball in the mid-to-high 150 kilometres per hour, and his changeup and secondary pitches are considered to be excellent. In high school baseball this year, he appeared in seven games and allowed just one earned run in 27⅓ innings.

The Dodgers traded away an existing prospect to acquire Jang, signalling their willingness to take on an additional “international amateur signing bonus” to acquire him.
