Sohn Ah-seop Signs Four-year, 9.8 Billion Won Contract to Stay at Lotte

Free agent Sohn Ah-seop signed a four-year, 9.8 billion won contract with the Lotte Giants on Sunday.

The contract is the third-most valuable free agent signing, following Lee Dae-ho’s 15 billion won contract in January and Choi Hyung-woo’s 10 billion won contract in 2016.

The signing of Sohn has become a source of relief for Giants fans who have been worried about the team after a string of big name losses including Hwang Jae-gyun who played for the Giants from 2010 to 2016 before trying his hand last season playing for the San Francisco Giants.

Sohn has become a franchise star and said he decided to re-sign with the Lotte Giants because his dream of winning the championship with Lotte is much bigger than his desire to enter the MLB.
