Deoksu High School right-handed pitcher Shim Jun-seok (18), a super high school level talent, is approaching a major league contract. Three major league clubs discussed specific terms of the contract, and it was confirmed that the largest of the two final offers was over $1 million including options.
An official familiar with major league circumstances told MK Sports on the 13th, “Shim Jun-seok’s major league contract is imminent. The size of the contract is known to exceed $1 million in total including options.”
Previously, many media outlets, including the American sports media outlet The Athletic, predicted a high possibility of Shim Jun-seok going to Pittsburgh. The Athletic said on the 12th (Korean time), “It seems that the Pittsburgh Pirates will sign a contract with Shim Jun-seok, who is regarded as the best prospect from Korea. Shim Jun-seok was designated as the first overall candidate for the KBO League draft,” he explained. 스포츠토토
