FREE AGENT SIGNING: San Francisco Giants Finally Land Big Star

The San Francisco Giants finally got to spend some of their money. After failing to land big stars like Aaron Judge, Carlos Correa and Bryce Harper in recent years in free agency, the Giants have gone off the continent to bring in much-ballyhooed young Korean star outfielder Jung Hoo Lee on a massive nine-figure contract.

The deal is said to be worth $113M over six years, and includes an opt out for Lee after four seasons.  The posting fee is another $19M, bringing the Giants' potential total investment to $132M. 

One MLB Network prediction lauded the skills of the Korean superstar, saying he could wind up hitting .300 with 25 or 30 home runs in the majors. 

He's only 25, plays Gold Glove caliber defense in the outfield, and could also play center field according to the scouts. 

The Giants made $300M bids to acquire Judge, Correa and Harper in the past few years, and while none of them worked out, their 113M gets it done with Lee, as they beat out the San Diego Padres to land him.
