Mike Tuckman (Chicago Cubs), who played for the Hanwha Eagles, added a hit in the major leagues for the first time in two years.
On the 21st (hereafter Korean time), Tuchman appeared as a great defense in the bottom of the 6th inning in an away game against the Philadelphia Phillies held at Seasons Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
Tuchman stood at bat in the top of the 8th inning and hit a changeup from Philadelphia right-handed bullpen corner Brogdon for a left-handed hit.
His major league hit record is 1 year and 10 months after the Los Angeles Dodgers, which belonged to the San Francisco Giants, in July 2021. The game extended his personal major league career hit record to 135.
Last year, Tuckman signed a contract with the Hanwha Eagles for a total of $1 million with a one-year contract of $300,000 and an annual salary of $700,000. His final performance was a .289 batting average, 12 home runs, 43 RBIs and 88 runs scored in 144 full game appearances. His appearance in all games as a foreign player is the only one in the 2022 season. Although he was the main player of the team, he failed to renew his contract with Hanwha and signed a minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs.
After Cody Bellinger suffered a knee injury, Tuchman also had a chance to play in the big leagues.
On the 20th, Tuchman, who came up to the big leagues, took a pinch hit in the top of the 9th inning that day and withdrew with a floating ball in right field. 안전놀이터
At that time, Philadelphia put Cody Clemmons, the son of legendary pitcher Roger Clemmons, on the mound. At that time, Tuchman touched Clemmons’ slow ball and stopped hitting.
