Former Samsung Buchanan gives up 8 runs in 2⅔ innings in Triple-A, worst start ever

David Buchanan, 35, who signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies after opting out of his KBO contract with the Samsung Lions, had his worst outing in Triple-A.

Buchanan started for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Philadelphia) against the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings (Minnesota Twins) at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, on April 23 (KST), allowing eight runs on nine hits, one home run, two walks and eight strikeouts in 2⅔ innings. Lehigh Valley was unable to overcome the early deficit and fell to 5-10, while Buchanan suffered his third loss of the season (3-3).

In the top of the first, Buchanan worked around a grounder to third base and a passed ball to load the bases, but James Wood doubled to center field. He then gave up a single to Travis Blankenhorn, but right fielder Jordan Lupulo threw home to end the threat.

The second inning ended with three batters on base. After getting Trey Lipscomb to ground out to third base, he gave up a single to Juan Yepes, but induced a grounder to second base against Alex Cole to end the inning.

The third inning was a nightmare. After a leadoff walk to Carter Kivum, Zach Dunn laid down a sacrifice bunt to put runners on first and second. Darren Baker followed with a single up the middle to put runners on first and third. Drew Milas singled to right field to drive in the runner from third, giving Buchanan his first run. Baker, who had singled, advanced to second.

With runners on second and third and only one out, Buchanan was completely stranded. He gave up a single to Wood to load the bases and a double to Blankenhorn to put runners in scoring position at second and third. Lipscomb followed with an RBI single to center to extend Buchanan’s lead to four runs.

With runners on first and second, Buchanan drew an eight-pitch walk against Yepes to put runners on first and second. Cole followed with an RBI single to center, making the score 0-5 and putting runners on second and third. The batting order rotated and Kivum stepped up to the plate again. Buchanan worked a 2-2 count, but was hit by a five-pitch fastball up in the zone for a three-run homer.

After failing to get the final out of the 카지노 inning, Buchanan left the game after throwing 58 pitches. His Triple-A ERA jumped from 4.37 to 5.58.

Drafted by the Phillies in the seventh round (231st overall) of the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft, Buchanan began his professional career in Philadelphia and played seven seasons in the United States through 2016. After debuting in the big leagues in 2014 and compiling an 8-17 record with a 5.01 ERA in 35 games over two seasons (2014-2015), Buchanan went 10-9 with a 3.98 ERA in 27 games (26 starts) at Triple-A in 2016 before heading to Asia.

After signing with the Yakult Swallows and playing three seasons in the NPB (2017-2019), Buchanan moved to South Korea, where he compiled a 20-30 record with a 4.07 ERA. He spent four seasons with Samsung, where he was the team’s ace, compiling an impressive 54-28 record with a 3.02 ERA in 113 games. After the 2023 season, the organization was poised to offer Buchanan a multi-year contract, but he opted to return to the United States instead.

Contrary to initial reports, however, Buchanan signed a minor, rather than a major, contract and re-entered the competitive scene in his mid-30s. After struggling in 바카라사이트 four exhibition games, going winless with a 5.63 ERA (5 earned runs in 8 innings) and a .371 batting average, Buchanan began the 2024 season at Triple-A.

Buchanan cruised to a 2-2 record with a 2.39 ERA in four games (three starts) in April, boosting his dreams of a big league call-up. However, his pace slowed dramatically in May, going 1-2 with an 8.69 ERA in four games.

Former Samsung teammates Albert Suarez (Baltimore Orioles) and Aaron Brooks (Kia Tigers), both of whom played for the Oakland Athletics, could have gotten a shot at the big league roster, but the Phillies, who signed Buchanan to a minor league contract, are 37-14 (.725 winning percentage) with a six-game winning streak through 24 games. The Phillies have one of the strongest mounds in the National League (NL), both starting and bullpen, so there’s no room for Buchanan to slip through the cracks. Buchanan’s struggles in the minors at a young age make it increasingly unlikely that he’ll get a major league call-up.
