Lee Dae-ho Returning to Lotte Giants


Former Seattle Mariners first baseman Lee Dae-ho has rejoined his old South Korean club after one season in the majors.

The Lotte Giants of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) said today they’ve reacquired Lee on a four-year deal worth 15 billion won (US$12.9 million), which is the largest contract handed to a free agent in the league’s history.

The 34-year-old will be reunited with the KBO club he’d played with for 11 seasons, before he played games in Japan and the United States.
