The Samsung Lions, which hired two new foreign players, are having a lengthy negotiation with David Buchanan. Buchanan, who became the first foreign pitcher for Samsung to win 10 games for four consecutive years, is most likely to earn the highest salary among foreign players in the KBO league next year. How much should Buchanan pay to sign.헤라카지노

Samsung recently hired infielder David McKinnon and right-hander Connor Seabold. McKinnon signed a contract for a total of 1 million dollars (down payment of 100,000 dollars, annual salary of 900,000 dollars). Seabold signed a contract for a total of 1 million dollars (down payment of 100,000 dollars, annual salary of 800,000 dollars, annual incentive of 100,000 dollars).

Seabold is an active big leaguer. He had one win, seven losses and a 7.52 ERA in 87 ⅓s in 27 games (13 starts) for the Colorado Rockies in the Major League this year. As a Triple-A hitter, he had a career-high 13 wins and seven losses with a 4.13 ERA. McKinnon, a mid- to long-distance hitter, posted a batting average of 259 with 15 homers and 50 RBIs in 127 games for the Seibu Lions of the Japanese pro baseball this year. He ranked third in homers among foreign hitters who played in the Japanese pro baseball.

Samsung still has a contract renewal with its most important ace, Buchanan. Buchanan is a long-lived foreign player who played for Samsung for four seasons from 2020 to this year. He is a foreign pitcher who represents the league with Kelly (LG) and Cuevas (KT), who played for five seasons.

Buchanan joined the Samsung Lions for a total of $850,000 in the first year of 2020. In 27 games (174.2 innings), he won 15 games, lost seven and posted an ERA of 3.45. In 2021, he won 16 games, lost five and posted an ERA of 3.10. In 2022, he recorded 26 games (160 innings) with 11 wins, eight losses and an ERA of 3.04, and this year, he recorded the best performance with 30 games (188 innings) with 12 wins, eight losses and an ERA of 2.54. He ranked third in ERA, second in innings, tied for fifth in multiple wins, and tied for second in quality start (21 innings).

So far, the highest annual salary for foreign players next year is 1.5 million dollars. Kelly’s total is 1.5 million dollars, and Cuevas also renewed her contract for 1.5 million dollars. Doosan’s Alcantara and SSG foreign hitter Heredia also signed contracts for 1.5 million dollars. Buchanan is expected to surpass that. Even if the total annual salary is frozen this year, it will be 1.6 million dollars.

Buchanan performed well last year except for an injury at the end of the season. However, his total salary this year was cut by 100,000 dollars from 1.7 million dollars. Options have been reduced.

Samsung has signed contracts with three players this year, exhausting $4.6 million in salary cap for foreign players (basic $4 million, plus 10% depending on the number of years they renew their contracts). With Pirella signing a total of $1.7 million (down payment of $100,000, annual salary of $1.2 million, incentive of $400,000), and Suarez signing a total of $1.3 million (down payment of $100,000, annual salary of $900,000, incentive of $300,000), Buchanan could only receive up to $1.6 million, a cut of $100,000.

Samsung is in negotiations with Buchanan to renew his contract, but the two sides have yet to narrow their differences. Buchanan requested a “multi-year contract” in last year’s salary negotiations, which Samsung reportedly rejected. This time, Samsung is also considering a multi-year contract with Buchanan. Buchanan seems to have the highest salary for a foreign player in the 2024 season and a multi-year contract.

Meanwhile, six teams have confirmed foreign players for next season. LG, which won the combined championship, and KT, SSG, Doosan, Kiwoom, and Lotte, the runner-up teams of the Korean Series, have decided on a lineup of three foreign players. There are two pitchers empty for KIA, one for Hanwha and one for NC Dinos.
