Hanwha Eagles sign left-hander Ricardo Sanchez
Hanwha Eagles recruited a new foreign player.
Hanwha announced on the 20th that it has signed a contract with Venezuelan left-hander Ricardo Sanchez for an annual salary of $400,000. Hanwha, who released Birch Smith, who
left due to a shoulder injury on the 19th, quickly filled the void by putting in a replacement player in one day.메이저사이트
He recorded an average ERA of 6.75 in 5.1 innings in 3 games.
He started 133 of 140 minor league games, went 32-52 with a 4.61 earned run average, and struck out 581 batters in 640.1 innings pitched.
Hanwha expects that “Sanchez, who uses curves, sliders, and changeups, in addition to two-seams of similar restraint to fastballs in the late 140km/h (up to 151km/h), will be able to digest stable innings through his unique aggressive pitching pattern.”
Sanchez plans to return to Korea within this month and join the team as soon as administrative procedures are completed.
