Los Angeles Dodgers Ink High-Potential International Talent Hyun-Suk Jang with $900K Agreement


The Los Angeles Dodgers might have strengthened their upcoming pitching roster. As per Dan Kurtz, an insider from the Korea Baseball Organization, it has been revealed that the agency representing international pitching prospect Hyun-Suk Jang has officially announced that the Dodgers have secured a contract with the prospect amounting to $900,000. Jang is scheduled to conduct a press conference on August 14th. Eric Stephen from SB Nation provided context for this deal, explaining that the Dodgers were able to make such an agreement due to their acquisition of additional international bonus slot space through a trade with the Chicago White Sox. This trade became necessary to bring in the 19-year-old pitcher, as the National League West team had already utilized a significant portion of their initial $4.1 million international bonus pool.
