‘9.4 billion vs. 6.2 billion’ conflict ends?… 3-year contract with TOR, ‘Al Hit King for 2 consecutive years’ imminent
Bo Bisset, who had difficulties negotiating a salary, signs a three-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Local multiple media, including Ben Nicholson-Smith of Canada’s ‘Sportsnet’, reported on the 8th (Korean time) the news of the extended contract between the Toronto Blue Jays and Bo Bissett. The specific size of the contract was not disclosed, but they succeeded in agreeing to a three-year contract.
Bisset, who started his professional life after being nominated by Toronto with the 66th overall pick in the 2nd round of the 2016 rookie draft, stepped on the big league stage for the first time in 2019. In the first season of his debut, Bisset hit 11 homers in 46 games, hitting a batting average of 0.311 OPS and 0.930, and in 29 games in the shortened season of 2020, he recorded 5 home runs, 23 RBIs, batting average of 0.301 OPS and 0.840, and succeeded in leaping into the starting lineup. did. 스포츠토토
The high point of his major league career was the 2021 season. Bisset had a career high season in 2021, wielding a fire bat with 191 hits, 29 home runs, 102 RBIs, 121 points, 25 stolen bases, a batting average of 0.298 OPS and 0.828 in 159 games. His 191 hits was the most in the American League. And last year, he continued his steady performance with 189 hits (most) in 159 games, 24 homers, 93 RBIs, 91 runs, a batting average of 0.290 and an OPS of 0.802.
After the 2022 season, Bisset, who first qualified for an annual salary adjustment application, hoped for $7.5 million (approximately 9.4 billion won). However, when Toronto offered 5 million dollars (about 6.2 billion won), the conflict between the two sides began. They could not reach an agreement until the end of the salary negotiations, and seemed to be headed for a salary adjustment hearing.
However, a three-year contract between Toronto and Bisset is imminent. Bisset, who qualifies as a free agent after the 2025 season, does not have to negotiate an annual salary until he becomes a free agent if this contract is made official. A salary adjustment hearing related to the 2023 season salary is also not expected to be held.
