Hit 12 home runs in Hanwha and break up after a year… In the Cubs, the final hit at 30%, ‘ML life reversed’
Is it a life reversal? It’s only 10 games, but it’s a strong start.
Mike Tuckman (33, Chicago Cubs) played in all 144 games for the Hanwha Eagles in the KBO League in the 2022 season, batting average of 0.289, 12 home runs, 43 RBIs, 88 points and 19 steals. He had rather poor home runs and RBIs in all appearances. He couldn’t get good reviews for his clutch ability.
Eventually, Tuchman signed a minor contract with the Chicago Cubs ahead of this season. age in the mid-30s. The road to Tuchman’s return to the major leagues looked bleak. However, he made a dramatic comeback to the major leagues when Cody Bellinger, who he recruited this season, was placed on the disabled list due to a knee injury.안전놀이터
Moreover, he played in 24 games for the minor league Triple-A Iowa Cubs this season, batting average of 0.278, 3 home runs, 15 RBIs, 17 runs, and OPS of 0.870, which was not a very outstanding performance. However, he writes anti-war dramas in the major leagues. In a home game against the Tampa Bay Rays on the 30th (hereinafter Korean time), he started as center fielder in the 6th inning and made a sacrifice fly to the right fielder in the bottom of the 4th inning with 1 out and 3 base.
On this day, the Cubs beat Tampa Bay 1-0. Tuchman’s RBI was the only RBI on the day. Thanks to Tuchman’s RBI, starting pitcher Marcus Stroman’s 9 innings, 1 hit, 8 strikeouts, 1 walk and no run shutout also shined. The perfect game failed miserably.
Tuckman has a good flow against the Cincinnati Reds on the 29th, having his first three-hit game since his return to the major leagues. In 10 games this season, 8 hits in 26 at-bats, a batting average of 0.308, 2 RBIs, 3 runs, an OPS of 0.770. He played for the Colorado Rockies in 2017-2018, the New York Yankees in 2019-2020, and the San Francisco Giants in 2021, never hitting a 300. His career batting average in the major leagues was just 0.234.
After his return to the majors, he only played 10 games. It is correct to evaluate after a small sample and a little more time has passed. However, considering that Hanwha’s foreign hitter Brian O’Grady virtually failed this year, Tuchman’s performance in the major leagues may be somewhat bitter for Hanwha.
