Samsung Lions foreign pitcher David Buchanan complained of neck pain again.
Samsung coach Park Jin-man reported the news of Buchanan’s injury at a meeting with reporters while the 13th game between kt Wiz and the team in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League scheduled to be held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 29th was canceled due to rain. This time, it is a symptom of a sore throat.
Originally, Buchanan was scheduled to start the game that day. But over the weekend, he complained of phlegm in his neck. The coaching staff judged that Buchanan was unable to play, and changed Choi Chae-heung to the starting pitcher. Buchanan is expected to play when he is fully fit.
Director Park said, “Buchanan continues to have symptoms of phlegm. There are times when he feels a little bad today and then returns to normal. It seems that he is still uncomfortable. said.
This isn’t the first time Buchanan has complained of choking. Buchanan, who started against the LG Twins at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu on the 16th, felt discomfort in the neck area during the second inning pitch, and was eventually knocked out early.토토사이트
It is Buchanan who felt the symptoms of the second episode. A video review was followed to check whether there was a foul on Moon Bo-gyeong’s batted ball at the safe first base, and Buchanan also felt muscle cramps while turning her body to watch the video on the display board. He tried practice pitching in the 3rd inning, but it was judged that he could no longer pitch.
Still, Buchanan, who started against the Hanwha Eagles held at Daejeon Hanwha Life Insurance Eagles Park on the 22nd, threw a total of 116 pitches in 7 innings, recording 5 hits, 1 walk, 2 runs (unearned) and 5 strikeouts. He kept the mound by pitching a quality start plus (three earned runs or less in 7 starting innings).
Buchanan’s presence at Samsung is great. While he is still struggling to find the 5 starter, he has no resources to replace if he leaves even the ace. This is why attention is focused on Buchanan’s physical condition.
