Mariners Lee Dae-ho has his mind set that he’ll be continuing his Baseball career next season in the Major leagues, Lee (who’ll soon be a FA) has stated that he won’t be returning to play in the KBO or NPB anytime soon… he also said that there’s still room for improvement for him to have success playing in Baseball’s biggest stage, and wants to take on that challenge.
Lee signed a minor league deal with the Mariners back in early February of this year, with a spring training invite. Lee earned himself a spot in the regular season roster by beating Jesus Montero in the preseason for a spot to take over as back-up for Adam Lind at first base.
The 34 year old rookie from South Korea owns a batting line of .253/.312/.740 with 14 homeruns and 49 RBI in 292 at-bats (104 games) in his first season at the Major league level, he’s hit .288 in the first half of the season with the M’s, also providing them with a share of clutch moments, but struggled during the second half of the season… hitting just .200 while going up and down from Triple-A.
