The Samsung Lions changed their starting pitcher ahead of today’s (21st) game. Not the foreign ace David Buchanan that was previously announced, but Jang Pil-joon will take the mound. It’s because Buchanan’s knee is not in good condition. He says that as soon as he woke up in the morning, he was in so much pain that he couldn’t even walk properly.온라인카지노
The Samsung Lions will play the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against KT Wiz at Daegu Samsung Lions Park at 6:30 pm on the 21st.
Initially, on this day, Samsung planned to put Buchanan, the best ace in the team, as the starter.
However, ahead of the match, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) officially announced, “In the game between KT and Samsung scheduled to be held in Daegu on the 21st, Buchanan, who was supposed to be Samsung’s starting pitcher, was replaced by Jang Pil-joon due to a knee injury.”
His knee pain eventually caught up with Buchanan on the first day of the second half. Samsung coach Park Jin-man said in an interview with reporters ahead of the game that day, “They said the knee pain was so severe that they couldn’t even walk when they woke up this morning.
Buchanan is a player with a strong mentality that is second to none not only in the Samsung Lions but also in all 10 clubs. Encouraging his teammates, he always brings a sense of power to Dugout. But if such a Buchanan can’t go out on his own, it seems that his pain is quite severe.

Director Park said, “I had similar symptoms of gout in the first half, so I took a break by skipping a turn. The pain seems to appear all over the place. It may get better quickly, but on the contrary, the bad condition may last for several days. Fortunately, I received treatment at the hospital. I think my condition is better now than when I was sick the next morning.”
Due to Buchanan’s unexpected injury, Samsung had to play against KT on Bullpen Day. Coach Park expressed his regret, saying, “First of all, the middle pitchers are on standby. It seems that we will have to appoint several pitchers. From the first day of the second half, we will have a bullpen day.”
Buchanan showed a truly splendid performance at the KBO All-Star Game held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 15th and showed his dedication to the fans. Director Park laughed, saying, “It’s unfortunate that Buchanan didn’t receive the performance award. He only performed from the 1st to the 9th,” and then showed admiration, saying, “He hit the bat well. The batting posture was perfect.
