Boras also posted a welcome message on social media, revealing a picture taken with Lee Jung-hoo, his father, coach Lee Jong-beom, and his mother.
Boras, who is famous for his tactic of maximizing ransom by inducing ‘infinite competition’ among clubs, has exceeded $1 billion in contracts with superstars such as Xander Bogatz and Carlos Correa this winter alone.
He also has a lot of connections with Korean major leaguers.
He signed large-scale contracts with Park Chan-ho, Ryu Hyun-jin, and Choo Shin-soo, and recently signed fastball prospect Shim Jun-seok to Pittsburgh.
