Seoul’s Lee Chansol signs minor league deal with Boston Red Sox

Seoul High School’s “Fireballer” right-handed pitcher Lee Chansol (18) is set to take on the major leagues.

The Boston Red Sox announced on July 25 (KST) that they have signed Lee to a minor league contract. Lee is listed on MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, as 6 feet 1 inch (about 185 centimeters) tall and 195 pounds (about 88 kilograms).먹튀검증

Boston local media outlet ‘NESN’ reported, “The Boston Red Sox have made a rare signing of a Korean high school pitcher. The 18-year-old was expected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming KBO draft, but he opted out and traveled overseas to join the Red Sox.” “He joins the ranks of Bae Ji-hwan, Choo Shin-soo, Park Chan-ho, and Choi Ji-man as South Korean players who have signed directly with major league teams out of high school.”

Lee, who throws a hard-hitting fastball in excess of 150 km/h, hasn’t exactly been a standout this year, going 3-3 with a 6.30 ERA in 11 games. However, his 31 strikeouts in 20 innings of work has earned him recognition for his excellent command.
