Veteran Lee Yong-gyu, who was sluggish last season with a batting average of less than 20% (0.199), is aiming for a rebound with No. 15, which he used for the KIA Tigers in his heyday. Lee Hyung-jong and Won Jong-hyun, who newly joined through FA, will use the number 36 and 46, respectively, from their former team. Lim Chang-min, who returned to his former team, also kept the number he had previously used (45).
Ariel Furado, a new foreign pitcher, chose number 75, and Edison Russell, who returned to the KBO league after 3 years, chose number 27 instead of the number 50 he used before. Kim Tae-jin, who previously wore number 27, changed his number to number 2.
In addition, Lee Kang-joon, who joined as an FA compensation player for Han Hyun-hee, who left for Lotte, started the 2023 season with No. 58, and Hong Seong-min, who was called by Kiwoom after NC release, with No. 67. Lim Byeong-wook, who was unable to join Kiwoom’s 1st team due to an injury right before his discharge last year, changed his uniform number to 35 instead of the number 0 he used before enlisting in the military.
