The Samsung Lions of the professional baseball league seems to be breaking up with foreign pitcher David Buchanan (34).

Samsung recently offered Buchanan the last terms of the contract, and Buchanan did not respond.마카오토토주소

A Samsung official said in a phone call on the 3rd, “I think it will be difficult to sign a contract with Buchanan,” adding, “We may announce a contract with a new foreign player soon.”

“We have to start spring camp training from next month,” a source said. “It’s time to move. I’m very sorry that the possibility of signing Buchanan contract has decreased, but I can’t wait.”

Right-handed pitcher Buchanan is an ace who played for Samsung from the 2020 season to the last season.

He won more than 10 games every season, and played an ace role in the 2023 season with 12 wins, 8 losses and a 2.54 ERA.

Samsung also decided to renew its contract with Buchanan early on.

However, when negotiations began, there was a big difference in position.

Buchanan wanted the highest level of treatment with a multi-year contract.

Samsung made a concession on the condition of guaranteeing a two-year contract, but its position was not narrowed down in the total amount of the contract.

A Samsung official said, “It was difficult to yield the terms of the contract due to the issue of salary cap for foreign players.”

Buchanan also had to consider dropping out due to injury in the first year of his contract.

In the end, Samsung offered the last terms of the contract at a reasonable level, and failed to reach the contract.

Samsung also closely looked into new foreign pitchers while negotiating with Buchanan.

An official said, “There are not many excellent resources, but among them, there are players who have been paying attention.”

If Samsung recruits a new face, it will replace all foreign players who played in the 2023 season.

Samsung recently said goodbye to foreign hitter Jose Pirella and signed new foreign hitter David McKinnon for $1 million.

In addition, foreign pitcher Taylor Widener was removed from the list of pending players and new foreign pitcher Connor Seabold was hired for $1 million.
