Outfielder Mike Tuckman (33), who played for the Hanwha Eagles last year, was excluded from the opening roster of the Major League Baseball (MLB) Chicago Cubs.
The Cubs announced on the 28th (Korean time) that they sent Tuchman and left-hander Roennis Elias to minor league camp.
Tuchman, who became a big leaguer in 2017, had a batting average of 0.231, 17 home runs, 78 RBIs, 93 runs, an on-base percentage of 0.326, and a slugging percentage of 0.378 in 257 games with the Colorado Rockies, New York Yankees, and San Francisco Giants.
Last year, he signed a contract with Hanwha for a total of 1 million dollars and entered the KBO League.
Tuckman appeared in all games (144 games) and recorded a batting average of 0.289, 12 homers, 43 RBIs, 88 runs, an on-base percentage of 0.366, and a slugging average of 0.430, but his contract renewal failed.
Returning to the United States, Tuchman signed a minor league contract with the Cubs to re-enter the MLB. Tuckman showed promise, batting .318 in his first 10 exhibition games. 바카라사이트
Coincidentally, Japanese outfielder Suzuki Seiya, who had been active as the starting right fielder until last year, withdrew from the team due to a side injury, and the possibility of Tuchman joining the opening roster was predicted.
However, Tuckman, who gradually lost pace, finished the exhibition game with a batting average of 0.225, and his rival Patrick Wisdom showed good hitting. Tuchman didn’t survive to the opening roster after all.
