Tuchman started as center fielder five times against the Chicago Cubs at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California on the 8th (Korean time), recording 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 run in 3 at-bats.

Tuckman, who played for Hanwha last season, recorded an OPS of .795 with 12 homers, 43 RBIs, 88 points and 19 stolen bases in 144 games with a batting average of 2.89 (166 hits in 575 at-bats). His overall performance was not bad, but his slugging power was a little disappointing in terms of foreign hitters, and negotiations with Hanwha to renew his contract failed.

Tuckman, who failed to renew his contract with Hanwha, returned to the United States with a minor league contract with the Cubs. In demonstration games, he had a batting average of 2.25 Lee (9 hits in 40 at-bats), 1 home run, 4 RBIs, and an OPS of .754 in 21 games, but he started the season in the minor leagues.

Tuckman, who had been recording good results with a batting average of .278 in 24 games in the minor league Triple-A (22 hits in 79), 3 homers, 15 RBIs, and an OPS of .870, was unable to play in the big leagues when Cubs starting center fielder Cody Bellinger was injured. got it Tuchman, who came up to the major leagues on the 20th of last month, settled in the Cubs outfield with a batting average of .295 (13 hits in 44 at-bats), 6 RBIs, and an OPS of .747 in 17 games.

As Tuchman plays well in the major leagues, the regret that Hanwha has missed Tuckman is growing little by little. In particular, Brian O’Grady, who was recruited in place of Tuchman, was released after a severe slump with a batting average of 1.25 Lee (10-for-80) and 8 RBIs with an OPS of .337 in 22 games. .

Hanwha, which released O’Grady, is concentrating on finding a new foreign hitter. However, since it is still early in the season, it is not easy to find a satisfactory player because the major leagues do not release potential players well. Tuchman is also a starting center fielder in the major leagues, so it’s impossible to bring him back at this time.

What kind of hitter will Hanwha, which is in deep trouble with foreign hitters, bring? Fans are waiting longer.
