Samsung Lions new foreign pitcher Taylor Widener joined the team on the 11th.
A Samsung official said on the 11th, “Widener joined the team that is playing an away game at SSG Landers Field in Incheon today. Widener plans to play an active role as a starting pitcher with back number 57.”
Samsung quickly recognized a replacement foreign player as Albert Suarez, who had been with him since last season, received the result that it would take four weeks to recover from a left calf injury.
Just in time, on the 4th, he succeeded in minimizing Suarez’s vacancy by transferring the contract of Widener, who was released from the NC Dinos.
Widener was recording an average ERA of 4.52 with 4 wins and 2 losses in 11 NC games this season. In the first half, when he struggled with injuries, he recorded 3 wins, 2 losses and an average ERA of 5.04 in 8 games. However, entering the second half, he won 3 games and had an average ERA of 3.18, which was not bad.
In particular, in the last two games before being released, on the 28th of last month, he fought well with 5 hits, 4 strikeouts and 2 runs in 6 innings against the KT Wiz, and on the 3rd against the Lotte Giants, 4 hits, 8 strikeouts and 1 run in 7 innings.안전놀이터
