Hanwha foreigner → contract renewal failed… Tuchman signs minor league contract with Cubs
Outfielder Mike Tuckman (33), whose contract renewal negotiations with Hanwha failed, will wear a Chicago Cubs uniform and try to return to the major leagues.
The Cubs announced on the 14th (Korean time) that they have agreed to a minor league contract with Tuchman. It is known that an invitation to spring training is included. It seems that if he is promoted to the major leagues, he has followed the normal contract procedure that guarantees a certain amount of money.
Tuchman, who made his major league debut in Colorado in 2017, later went through the New York Yankees and San Francisco, appearing in a total of 257 games in five major league seasons. His career batting average is 0.231 with 17 homers, 78 runs batted in, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.704. Although he did not have a special performance, he was a player who was loved by fans for his unique hustle play. 카지노
Japanese and Korean clubs showed interest in Tuchman, and the winner of the scramble in 2022 was Hanwha. Hanwha, who worked hard on Tuchman, signed a contract for a total of 1 million dollars and secured the team’s starting center fielder. His performance was pretty good. He had a .289 batting average, 12 home runs, 43 RBIs, 19 stolen bases, and a .796 OPS in 144 games.
He was listed as a target for renewal, but negotiations did not work out, and Hanwha eventually left Korea, turning to Brian O’Grady, who had a little more power than the obscure Tuckman. Although he could not get the major league contract he wanted, he prepared a stepping stone to get a chance.
