‘Muscle pain in the neck → 3 replacements’ Buchanan’s rapid recovery, selection for Hanwha on the 22nd… “Definitely a different sense of responsibility as an ace”

 David Buchanan (Samsung), who complained of neck muscle pain during the Daegu LG match on the 16th, is showing a rapid recovery. He is scheduled to start against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 22nd. 

In the first inning, Buchanan dismissed Hong Chang-ki (center fielder fly), Shin Min-jae (2nd base grounder), and Kim Hyun-soo (1st base grounder). 메이저놀이터

In the second inning, Austin Dean and Moon Bo-kyung’s consecutive hits and Kim Min-sung’s sacrifice bunt forced Buchanan into a crisis with 1 out and 2nd and 3rd base. When Park Dong-won grounded to third base, third base runner Austin stepped on home and gave up one point. After two outs, Buchanan finished the inning by directly handling Moon Seong-joo’s ground ball. 

Buchanan climbed the mound in the third inning to practice pitching, but was soon replaced. A club official explained, “Buchanan complained of discomfort due to neck muscle pain after pitching the second inning and was replaced.” 

Manager Park Jin-man, who met with reporters ahead of the Daegu KIA game on the 18th, said, “Buchanan is getting better day by day. He will have no trouble on the next pitch.” 

Also, “Buchanan has a strong sense of responsibility as an ace. After he came down the mound after pitching in the second inning when the team was in a difficult situation, he felt regret for not being able to help the team. He definitely has a lot of responsibility as an ace.” 

Infielder Kim Ji-chan, who was out of action due to back pain, returned to the first team stage. He is scheduled to start as the ninth second baseman. Infielder Kim Ho-jae was eliminated from the first team entry. 

Starter Baek Jeong-hyeon showed off his salty watering by giving only 1 point by keeping the mound until 2 outs in the 7th inning. Manager Park Jin-man said, “The command has definitely improved, and the number of pitches is adjusted well as the opposing batters actively compete. His speed has also improved by 2-3 km.” 

Meanwhile, the Samsung batting order consisted of center fielder Kim Hyeon-jun, right fielder Kim Seong-yoon, designated hitter Koo Ja-wook, catcher Kang Min-ho, third baseman Ryu Ji-hyeok, left fielder Jose Pirella, first baseman Oh Jae-il, shortstop Lee Jae-hyeon, and second baseman Kim Ji-chan. Right-hander Taylor Widener will be on the starting mound.

On the 13th, he made his first appearance after transferring against SSG and recorded 10 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and 4 runs in 6⅔ innings. He became a losing pitcher, but his pitching was not bad.
