Kim Min-soo, who played the most games in the bullpen, recorded the highest mark. Kim Min-soo signed a contract for 250 million won (117.4% increase), an increase of 135 million won from an annual salary of 115 million won in the 2022 season. He played in 76 games last year with 5 wins, 4 losses, 30 holds, 3 saves, and an earned run average of 1.90.
Outfielder Kim Min-hyeok entered the billion won annual salary for the first time since his professional debut. He signed a contract for 150 million won, a 66.7% increase from 90 million won last season, recording the highest increase rate for a fielder. Catchers Kim Joon-tae (100 million won) and Oh Yoon-seok (120 million won) also rose to the first billion won annual salary side by side.
Outfielders Bae Jeong-dae (340 million won) and Cho Yong-ho (320 million won) each raised 80 million won, recording the highest increase for a fielder.
Infielder Kang Baek-ho signed a contract for 290 million won, a 47.3% cut from his annual salary of 550 million won. It was the aftermath of last year’s injury and sluggishness. He had a batting average of just .245 (58 hits in 237 at-bats) with six home runs and 29 RBIs in 62 games. He disagreed over the extent of the cut, but finalized his contract ahead of his departure from spring camp on the 29th.
