David Buchanan says goodbye to his fans after four years as an ace for Samsung, starting in 2020.

Buchanan pitched in 113 games for Samsung for four years from 2020, going 54-28 with a 3.02 ERA. In his rookie year, Buchanan went 15-7 with a 3.45 ERA, tying the franchise record for most wins by a foreign pitcher. In 2021, he went 16-5 with a 3.10 ERA and tied for first place on the all-time wins list.

In 2022, he was sidelined for a month with a finger injury, but went 11-8 for his third straight year of double-digit wins. Last year, he also went 12-8, making him the most dominant foreign starter in the league. While he was a reliable ace on the mound, he was also well-received in the dugout as an atmosphere maker and mentor to younger pitchers. The fan service is second to none.

Samsung continued to negotiate with Buchanan for a new contract, but due to a full salary cap, they were unable to meet Buchanan’s terms and his four-year stay with the team came to an end. In his place, 카지노사이트 Samsung signed Dominican Denny Reyes for a total of $800,000.

Buchanan sent a video letter to fans via his wife Ashley’s Instagram

“As you all have heard, me and my family will not be returning to Samsung. “As many of you have heard, me and my family really wanted to be with Samsung, and I had hoped to finish my career with them, but it just didn’t work out,” he said.

“It was a very difficult decision (to leave Samsung). But I wanted to let the fans know how much they mean to me, and my family has given me so much love from the first day I arrived to the last day, and I can’t thank them enough,” he added.

“My son Bradley and daughter Lily both grew up in Korea, and the environment and culture are indescribable. It was not an easy decision to make and it weighs heavily on my heart right now,” he said.

“I wish only good things for everyone. I will always hold you all in my heart and remember you forever,” said Buchanan, adding, “I hope to see you all again in the future. I will always have blue blood in my veins,” he concluded the video letter.

Meanwhile, Samsung completed its foreign player roster with Reyes, joining David McKinnon (infielder) and Connor Seabold (pitcher). In his big league debut, McKinnon played for the Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics, batting just 1-for-14 (7-for-50) with six RBIs and two runs scored.

Last year, he played for the Seibu Lions of Nippon Professional Baseball.

In 127 games, he batted .259 (120-for-464) with 17 home runs, 53 RBIs and 53 runs scored. “McKinnon is a mid-to-long range right-handed hitter with good vision and contact ability who can play solid first base and third base defense,” the club said.

Seabold, born in 1996, is a right-handed orthodox right-hander with excellent hardware at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds who has played for the Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies. He made 27 starts for Colorado last year, going 1-7 with a 7.52 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 87 1/3 innings, and was 13-7 with a 4.13 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in Triple-A.

Born in 1996, Reyes has excellent physical attributes at 6-foot-2, 193 pounds, and is strong against left-handed hitters, making him a competitive pitcher in the left-handed-hitting-heavy KBO.

He appeared in nine games (three starts) in the major leagues last year with the New York Mets and has pitched 91⅔ innings in 20 games (18 starts) in the minor leagues. 카지노사이트 He has a fastball that averages 147 mph and tops out at 150 mph, a slider, changeup, and cutter, and a variety of pitches that are optimized for robotic umpiring.
