The top 40 players are not SSG, but Doosan is No. 1? No club has passed the salary cap this year

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced on Tuesday the total amount of the top 40 salary players for each team in 2023. KBO introduced the salary cap system from 2023 to raise the level of the league’s performance and continue to develop. The salary cap has been set at 11.42 billion won (120% of the club’s annual average amount), which is 120% of the club’s annual salary, including the top 40 annual salary players (annual salary, actual payment of options, and annual contract payment for FA among the players of each team excluding foreign and rookie players) between 2021 and 2022. According to the calculation of annual salary for each team in 2023, no club exceeded the salary cap.

There was a difference between the team’s salary ranking announced by KBO ahead of the opening of the 2023 season and the total salary ranking of the top 40 players calculated based on the actual salary cap. In terms of team salary ranking (excluding foreign players and rookie players), SSG Landers ranked first with 9.482 billion won, Samsung Lions ranked second with 8.334 billion won, KT Wiz ranked third with 7.85 billion won, Doosan Bears ranked fourth with 7.62 billion won, LG Twins ranked fifth with 7.54 billion won, Lotte Giants sixth with 7.21 billion won, Hanwha Eagles ranked seventh with 7.057 billion won, NC Dinos ranked eighth with 6.667 billion won, Kiwoom Heroes ranked ninth with 6.452 billion won, and KIA Tigers ranked 10th with 5.991 billion won. 메이저 토토사이트

However, the total amount of the top 40 players actually paid, including actual payment of incentives based on options, and annual contract payment for FA, was different. Rankings have also changed significantly. Doosan recorded the highest amount among the 10 teams with 11.1817 billion won. Following this, six out of 10 teams recorded more than 10 billion won, including SSG with 10.8467 billion won, LG with 10.07 billion won, Lotte with 10.06 billion won, Samsung with 10.04 billion won, and NC with 10.88.12 billion won. Meanwhile, if the salary cap exceeds once, the amount equivalent to 50 percent of the excess amount will be paid as sanctions. If the salary cap exceeds for two consecutive times, the penalty of 100 percent of the excess amount and the right to nominate candidates for the first round in the following year will fall by nine levels. If the salary cap exceeds for three consecutive times, the penalty of 150 percent of the excess amount and the right to nominate candidates for the first round in the following year will fall by nine levels.
