(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kim Gyeong-yoon = Professional baseball Hanwha Eagles recruited foreign pitcher Nick Kingham (28), who had been withdrawn from SK Wyverns last season, and Ryan Carpenter (30), who played in Taiwanese professional baseball.
On the 29th, Hanwha announced, “Kingham and down payment of 100,000 dollars, annual salary of 250,000 dollars, options of 200,000 dollars, for a total of 550,000 dollars, Carpenter and down payment of 100,000 dollars, annual salary of 300,000 dollars, and options of 500,000 dollars. I signed a contract.”
Right-handed pitcher Kingham joined SK with great expectations last season, but was kicked out after leaving behind a poor performance of 6.75 ERA in two games due to an elbow injury. He was put on the operating table shortly after leaving.
Hanwha said, “I checked Kingham’s physical condition in the US,” he said. “We decided to sign him as we judged that he recovered his position before the surgery.
Left-handed pitcher Carpenter is a 196cm tall player. He was retired after starting 15 games at the Detroit Tigers in the US Major League in 2018 and 2019, recording an ERA of 2-8 and an ERA of 8.57.
He joined Taiwanese professional baseball Rakuten Monkeys in January of this year and achieved an average ERA of 10-6 and an ERA of 3.96.
Hanwha said, “Carpenter is a skillful pitcher who throws curves and sliders, and has excellent game management skills,” he said. “I look forward to the role of an inning eater as a left-handed starter.”
Meanwhile, Hanwha removed foreign pitcher Chad Bell before the end of last season, and did not renew its contract with another foreign starter Warwick Suffold.
Alternative alien beast Brandon Barnes also released.
Hanwha said, “We will find a new foreign beast in an early time.”
