Choi Ji-man, participating in the new team Pittsburgh and WBC + annual salary ‘war of nerves’… Pittsburgh has a ‘direct’ style of hearing if an annual salary cannot be agreed

Choi Ji-man is currently fighting a war of nerves with the Pittsburgh Pirates over two issues.
One is whether or not to participate in the WBC, and the other is salary negotiations for the 2023 season.

Choi Ji-man was included in the list of 30 WBC Korean representatives. He was very motivated to participate in the competition. Because he wants to wear the Taegeuk mark for the first time.

But Pittsburgh thinks otherwise. This is because Choi Ji-man, a newcomer, recently underwent surgery to dismember his arm.
At a time when he is in the midst of rehabilitation, he is not happy about competing in the WBC. If you get injured, it’s a waste.

So he is approaching it cautiously. After closely examining Choi Ji-man’s current condition, he will decide whether to participate.

Choi Ji-man and Pittsburgh are also fighting a war of nerves over the salary issue for the 2023 season.

The 14th (Korean time) is the deadline for submitting the amount presented by both parties. If no agreement is reached before then, both sides must spend the amount they want and exchange it.

After that, both sides can continue negotiations until the hearing.

However, according to Pirates Prospect, Pittsburgh is a team with a strong ‘file and trial’ tendency.

This means that if a club and a player cannot avoid arbitration prior to exchanging salary figures, the club will no longer negotiate with the player. 안전놀이터

If an agreement cannot be reached with Choi Ji-man, it will go directly to the hearing without renegotiation.

At the hearing, after hearing the arguments of both sides, one side will be raised.

Prior to the 2021 season, Choi Ji-man won at the end of a hearing with his then-affiliated team, the Tampa Bay Race.
