MLB salary adjustment hearings begin… Choi Ji-man’s salary will be decided in the middle of this month

Reporter Jang Hyeon-gu = The 2023 American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) annual salary adjustment hearing has begun.

The annual salary of Choi Ji-man (32, Pittsburgh Pirates) is expected to be decided in the middle of this month.

According to the Associated Press on the 2nd (Korean time), the MLB Salary Adjustment Committee made its first verdict this year and sided with the Seattle Mariners club.

Seattle reliever Diego Castillo asked for $3.225 million in salary this year, but three members of the salary adjustment hearing panel sided with the team, which offered $2.95 million.

The Salary Adjustment Committee also held hearings on the Los Angeles Angels and outfielder Hunter Renfro and will announce the results soon. 스포츠토토

Until the 18th of this month, 23 players and their clubs await the decision of the Salary Adjustment Committee.

The Salary Adjustment Committee mediates when a player who has played full-time for more than three years in the big leagues and his club cannot agree on an annual salary. A panel of three listens to both sides and decides on one side’s opinion as the final salary.

Choi Ji-man hoped for an annual salary of $5.4 million (about 6.6 billion won) in 2023, and Pittsburgh ran parallel with $4.65 million (5.7 billion won) before reaching the Salary Adjustment Committee.

Choi Ji-man faced off against his former team, the Tampa Bay Race, in the Salary Adjustment Committee two years ago, and defeated Tampa Bay, which offered $1.85 million, and received the $2.45 million he wanted as an annual salary.
