Samson, the ‘foreigner of memories’ led by Hanwha PS, renews the contract with Tungi in Taiwan… Daikson from Lotte and Hansotbap

 Foreign pitcher Kibas Sampson (32), who led the fall baseball of the Hanwha Eagles in 2018, continues his career in Taiwan Professional Baseball (CPBL). 

Taiwan’s ‘ET Today’ reported on the 6th (Korean time) that the Tungyi Lions had agreed to a contract with Sampson. After making his first step in Taiwan by signing a contract with Tung Yi in July of last year, he succeeded in renewing his contract. 

Sampson, a right-handed fastball pitcher, played for the Cincinnati Reds from 2015 to 2016, recording a total of 31 games (14 starts), 2 wins, 7 losses, 5.60 strikeouts, and 84 strikeouts in two major league seasons.  메이저사이트

He then moved to Korea by signing a contract with Hanwha in 2018. He went 13-8 with a 4.68 earned run average in 30 games and 161⅔ innings pitched. The 13 wins is the most wins in a single season by a Hanwha foreign pitcher. He also ranked first in strikeouts (195) with a high-speed ball of 154 km. 

He led Hanwha to fall baseball for the first time in 11 years, but failed to renew the contract. I had difficulty controlling the number of pitches due to anxiety about pitching, and left Korea as my inning digestibility declined. 

Sampson, who returned to the United States, signed minor league contracts with the San Francisco Giants in 2019 and the Chicago White Sox in 2021, but was not called up to the major leagues without producing any outstanding results. 

He went to Taiwan in July after going through the American Independent League Atlantic League last year. After he came on as a substitute for Tung Yi, he went 3-5 with a 3.54 earned run average in 11 games. He showed off his pitch with 59 strikeouts in 61 innings, and continues his career as a player in Tungyi this year. 

Tungi also has right-handed pitcher Brock Dykson (29), who played for SK Wyverns and Lotte Giants in the KBO League in 2019. Dykson, who has been active as an ace in Tongi since 2020, renewed his contract with Tongi early on the 18th of last month and has been active in Taiwan for the fourth year.
