It exceeded 250 million won for Kim Gwang-hyun (SK at the time). However, it did not exceed 400 million won of Ryu Hyun-jin (then Hanwha).
Ace of Kiwoom and certified as the best pitcher in the KBO League, Ahn Woo-jin’s annual salary for the 2023 season is 350 million won. It jumped 133.3% from 150 million won in the 2022 season. Although there was some pain, he agreed amicably without going to the salary adjustment request. 헤라카지노 Ace of Kiwoom and certified as the best pitcher in the KBO League, Ahn Woo-jin’s annual salary for the 2023 season is 350 million won.

In 30 games in the 2022 season, Woojin Ahn recorded an average ERA of 2.11 with 15 wins and 8 losses, 224 strikeouts in 196 innings, a batting average of 0.188, a WHIP of 0.95, and 24 quality starts. He was only second in most wins, but swept the other major individual records at No. 1. The second stat was also the strongest.
Ahn Woo-jin’s 350 million won surpassed Kim Gwang-hyun’s, but Ryu Hyun-jin’s was not. Kim Gwang-hyun received 250 million won in the 2012 season, his sixth year. In the 2011 season, Kim Gwang-hyun only had an average ERA of 4.84 with 4 wins and 6 losses in 17 games due to minor injuries. 20 million won was cut from 270 million won in 2011.
On the other hand, Ryu Hyun-jin received 400 million won in the 2011 season, his 6th year, and held the title of highest salary in his 6th year at the time. In the 2010 season, in 25 games, he recorded 16 wins and 4 losses with an average ERA of 1.82, which was a great achievement. Since he won two gold medals including earned run average and strikeouts, it was only natural that he rose from 270 million won to 400 million won.
There is no satisfaction for An Woo-jin. Early on, individual training is underway to prepare for the 2023 season. From last year’s regular season to the postseason, as many pitches were thrown, injury prevention is the most important topic. So far I haven’t heard of any ill news.
If he goes beyond the top of the league for two consecutive years and puts on an all-time performance, the gaze and evaluation towards Ahn Woo-jin may change again. There is no possibility of being selected for the national team right away due to the school violence issue. If so, running steadily and explosively every year in Korea is the only way to increase your value. It’s never an easy mission.
For reference, even in the 2012 season, which was his 6th year, Kim Gwang-hyun went 8-5 with an ERA of 4.30 in 16 games, which was not very good. In the end, before the 2013 season, the annual salary was cut by 10 million won again, earning 240 million won in the 7th year. At the time, Kim Gwang-hyun had minor injuries. Since Ahn Woo-jin had many residual injuries during his younger years, the aftermath of Kim Gwang-hyun’s injury would not be the same as others.
Even in the 2011 season, his 6th year, Ryu Hyun-jin was good with an average ERA of 3.36, 11 wins and 7 losses in 24 games. In the end, the salary of the 2012 season, which was the seventh year, increased by 30 million won to 430 million won. For Ahn Woo-jin, if he plays well this season, it is a gap that he can immediately overcome and overcome next year. Ahn Woo-jin had a clear motivation for Ryu Hyun-jin in his 7th year.
