Player Outlook
Jung-Hoo Lee signed a six-year, $113 million deal with the Giants in December after seven excellent seasons in Korea. Top of the scale contact ability carries his profile and helped him to a Rookie of the Year, an MVP and a lifetime .340 batting average. He's recorded a strikeout rate of 7.6 percent or better for five consecutive seasons, walking more than he struck out in each of those campaigns. Lee's strikeout rate could double upon his move to MLB and he'd still probably hit for a good average. The question is what else he'll do. Lee should help the Giants out with good outfield defense, and he should pitch in on the basepaths, though his 10.5 steals per 600 plate appearances hardly paint him as a burner. The main issue is that Lee's power may be almost non-existent. He did manage 23 homers in 2022 but finished with a single-digit total five times. He was consistently among the KBO leaders in doubles, but reports on his exit velocity data are poor, so there may not be many more homers coming. He'll also have to prove his health after a broken ankle cost him half of last season, though his contract seemingly indicates the Giants have little concerns on that front.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Homers in win

    Lee went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, an RBI double and two total runs scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Lee has hit safely in 11 straight games, going 17-for-48 (.354) in that span. The 25-year-old has looked like a natural fit for the Giants' leadoff spot, slashing .289/.330/.398 over 91 plate appearances this season. He's added two homers, seven RBI, 12 runs scored, three doubles and two stolen bases on four attempts. Lee may sit against the occasional southpaw, but he's in no danger of slipping to platoon-level playing time.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Logs second steal

    Lee went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Rays. Lee has two steals over his last three games, and he's hit safely in his last six contests (8-for-27). The outfielder was a little slow to get started in the majors, and he's still hitting just .242 from the leadoff spot. He's added a home run, two steals, four RBI, seven runs scored, two doubles and a 5:6 BB:K through 69 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Swipes first MLB bag

    Lee went 1-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Rays. The 25-year-old center fielder created the Giants' only run of the night single-handedly -- Lee led off the third inning with a single, promptly swiped second base, advanced to third on Ben Rortvedt's throwing error and then raced home on a Jacob Waguespack wild pitch. It was Lee's first steal in MLB, but he isn't known as a big threat on the basepaths -- his career high in the KBO was 13 stolen bases, set back in 2019, and he went 6-for-9 on steal attempts with Kiwoon in 2023. Through his first 13 games with San Francisco, Lee is slashing .250/.305/.327 with a homer, four RBI and five runs while hitting leadoff in every contest.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Hits first big-league homer

    Lee went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Padres. Lee hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning and then added a solo shot in the eighth. The outfielder has hit safely in all three games so far this season, going 4-for-12 with four RBI and just one strikeout. He's also hit atop the order in all three contests, and with a little more pop behind him in the Giants' lineup, Lee could eventually start to score runs at a healthy rate if he can continue to get on base consistently.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Back in lineup Wednesday

    Lee (hamstring) is starting in center field and batting leadoff for the Giants in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Lee tweaked his left hamstring a week ago but has been cleared to return to action. The 25-year-old has hit .348/.423/.522 for the Giants this spring and projects as the club's everyday center fielder and leadoff man.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Rejoining lineup Tuesday

    Lee (side) will start in center field and bat leadoff in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Lee had been in line to make his spring debut in the Giants' Cactus League opener this past Saturday versus the Cubs, but he was scratched from the lineup due to side soreness. After a few days of recovery, however, the 25-year-old looks like he'll be ready to go Tuesday. He'll immediately settle in atop the lineup, which comes as little surprise after manager Bob Melvin said earlier in spring training that he expects Lee to serve as the Giants' primary leadoff man versus both right- and left-handed pitching this season.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Held out with side soreness

    Lee will not be in the lineup for the Giants' Cactus League opener Saturday against the Cubs due to some minor side soreness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The Giants believe Lee will be ready to play in a couple days, so the injury doesn't look to be something overly concerning. Side injuries do have a tendency to linger, however, so expect the club to exercise the utmost caution with the KBO import. Lee is slated to be the Giants' everyday center fielder and leadoff man in 2024 after inking a six-year, $113 million contract this offseason.

  • Giants' Jung Hoo Lee: Projected as full-time leadoff man

    Manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that he "would be shocked" if Lee didn't open the season as the Giants' leadoff man against both right- and left-handed pitching, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. A rough adjustment period to North American pitching during spring training could alter the Giants' plans for Lee, but San Francisco brought in the 25-year-old outfielder from Korea on a lavish six-year, $113 million deal with the full expectation that the high-contact rate and on-base skills he displayed in the Korea Baseball Organization would immediately translate to MLB. Lee didn't consistently hit for power or flash elite speed during his time in the KBO, but he should be a plus source of batting average and a strong source of runs if he ends up sticking atop the lineup permanently in his first season with the Giants. He's expected to play regularly in center field to begin the campaign, as Lee has already made a full recovery from the surgery he underwent on his left ankle last summer.
