Shall we go to the mediation committee in two years? Choi Ji-man, salary agreement with Pittsburgh failed

Choi Ji-man (32), who joined the Pirates last November, failed to reach an annual salary agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

‘MLB.com’ said on the 14th (hereinafter Korean time), “The Pittsburgh club could not reach an agreement with Choi Ji-man until the salary agreement deadline. It goes to the conciliation committee.”

According to the media, Choi Ji-man received an annual salary of 3.2 million dollars (approximately 3.97 billion won) at the Tampa Bay Race last season. In the 2022 season, Choi Ji-man played 113 games and recorded a batting average of 0.233, 11 homers, 52 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.729.

Choi Ji-man has the experience of winning the salary adjustment committee once. In 2021, Choi Ji-man received an expected annual salary of $2.45 million from the Salary Adjustment Committee with his team, Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay’s offer was $1.85 million. 토토사이트

Choi Ji-man and Pittsburgh are facing a salary adjustment committee, but negotiations are still possible. There remains the possibility of agreeing on a contract before the conciliation committee convenes.

Choi Ji-man was traded to Pittsburgh after last season and underwent surgery on a bone fragment in his right elbow. Pittsburgh is Choi Ji-man’s 5th team in the big leagues. Recently, Choi Ji-man took the opportunity to wear his first Taegeuk mark in the 13th year of his debut by boarding the WBC final roster.

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has concluded salary negotiations for the 2023 season with Mitch Keller ($2,437,500), JT Brubaker ($2,275,000), Robert Stevenson ($1.75 million), and Dwayne Underwood Jr. ($1,025,000).
