Outfielder Preston Tucker (33) from the KBO League KIA Tigers was released from the San Diego Padres.
‘San Diego Union-Tribune’ reporter Jeff 토토사이트 Sanders announced that Tucker was released on the 5th (Korean time). On the 2nd, which was the trade deadline, during the process of organizing the roster, the transfer was designated (DFA), and was released when the desired team did not appear during the waiver period.
Tucker signed a minor league contract with San Diego last December. This year, he hit hard with a batting average of 2.9 and 3 Lee (56 hits in 191 at-bats), 11 home runs and 40 RBIs with an OPS of .
In the middle of the season, Tucker emerged as a replacement foreign hitter candidate for KBO League teams. Rumors of his return to Korea circulated, but Tucker remained in the United States and continued his major league endeavors. Tucker, who was about to opt out in mid-June, was converted to a major league contract when San Diego put him on a 40-man roster, and a big league call-up seemed imminent.
However, at this time, he was put on the injured list due to plantar fasciitis, and it was regrettable that he wasted time in rehabilitation for a month. Although he returned in July, his batting pace dropped noticeably with a batting average of 10.3 (4 hits in 39 at-bats), 1 home run, 4 RBIs, and OPS .505 in 11 games, and his relationship with San Diego ended that way.
Left-handed outfielder Tucker made his major league debut with the Houston Astros in 2015. He went back and forth between the Atlanta Braves and the Cincinnati Reds, and through 2018, he hit 2.2, 2.2 (133 hits in 600 at-bats), 23 homers, 68 RBIs, and an OPS of .684 in 243 games in three seasons.
In 2019, he came to the KBO League as a KIA substitute during the season. He joined from May and succeeded in renewing the contract with a soft landing with a batting average of 3.1 1 Lee (111 hits in 357 at-bats), 9 homers and 50 RBIs in 95 games and an OPS of .860. In 2020, the second year, he transformed into a geopo. He played in 142 games with a batting average of 3.6 Lee (166 hits in 542 at-bats), 32 home runs, and 113 RBIs with an OPS of .
However, in 2021, he failed to renew the contract with a batting average of 203, 7 (111 hits in 468 bats), 9 home runs, 59 RBIs, and an OPS of .684 in 127 games. Following last year’s Atlanta-affiliated Triple A Gwinnett Strippers, he played in the minor leagues this year as well, but he was aiming for the next opportunity without fulfilling his dream of returning to the major leagues.
