The Samsung Lions has a lot of players to catch this winter. There are three more “house rabbits” that have been released as free agents, including foreign ace pitchers David Buchanan and Oh Seung-hwan.헤라카지노
Buchanan and Oh Seung-hwan are the talk of the year-end transfer market. As both players are key players in the Samsung mound, the club is also putting a lot of effort into catching them. Buchanan is having difficulty renewing his contract due to the multi-year contract issue, and Oh is still negotiating. Chances are high that he will pass the year.
Against this backdrop, Won Tae-in started to support the team. “Oh Seung-hwan is an essential player for our team, and Buchanan is also my mentor. They are indispensable pitchers in our team. I hope to hear the news of their renewal of their contract soon,” Won said.
Won Tae-in also expressed to the media the desire to renew the contract of catcher Kang Min-ho and Buchanan, who were FA at the time, in the winter of 2021. The result was a success. I hope that good memories and energy of that time will continue to Oh Seung-hwan and Buchanan in 2023 and succeed in staying.
Won Tae-in did not stop at just two players, however. Adding one more player as ” indispensable to the team,” Won also hoped that he would stay there. “I hope the team will catch (Kim) Dae-woo as well,” Won added.
Kim Dae-woo, who wore a Samsung uniform in 2016 in a trade with the Heroes, became an FA after the 2023 season, playing the role of all-weather for Samsung for eight years. Kim’s performance over the eight seasons was 19 wins, 19 losses, and 19 holds in 251 games. Although his performance is not that impressive, he claimed to be the yardstick whenever the team was in trouble.

Knowing Kim Dae-woo’s hidden efforts and performances well, Won Tae-in reiterated that “Daewoo is a really necessary player for the team.” “If I pick the most important player among pitchers, I think it’s Daewoo. When a starter suddenly has a problem, he steps in, and when there is no one in the bullpen, he steps in, and I am grateful to all the team members that there is a pitcher like this. I hope he can catch me,” Won said.
Samsung is also negotiating with Kim Dae-woo, just like Buchanan and Oh Seung-hwan. The negotiating table has been properly set up since Kim returned from his honeymoon after getting married recently. Attention is focusing on whether Won Tae-in’s wish will come true before the end of 2023.
