“Knee pain this morning” Vegetarian Buchanan gout flare-up→Samsung bad news, fortunately not serious

A sudden change of starting pitcher. The Samsung Lions have hit a rough patch at the start of the second half.

Samsung opens its 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against the KT Wiz at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu at 6:30 p.m. on the 21st.

Initially, Samsung was expected to start foreign ace David Buchanan on the day.

However, the starting pitcher was suddenly changed ahead of the game.

The KBO officially announced, “Buchanan, who was scheduled to start for Samsung against KT in Daegu on the 21st, has been replaced by Jang Pil-joon due to a knee injury.”

Sudden knee pain.

A Samsung representative told My Daily, “When he woke up today (21st) morning, he had a sudden pain. He went to the hospital and informed the opposing team, the KBO, and the umpires that it was difficult for him to pitch.”

Luckily, it’s not a serious injury. “Buchanan is a vegetarian. It is said that if he does not eat meat, there is a high chance that his gout will return.” “It seems that his existing gout symptoms have reappeared. It’s not a serious injury, so we’re not taking him out of the race. We will monitor his condition and make a decision on whether or not to withdraw him.”토토사이트

In fact, Buchanan had been dealing with gout symptoms. He had already withdrawn once in the first half of the season due to gouty fingers. This time, it was in his knee.

In his last start of the first half, on the 13th, Buchanan pitched nine innings of four-hit ball against the KIA Tigers, striking out eight and walking one. He was expected to carry the momentum into the second half, but his first start was delayed.

Due to an unexpected injury, Samsung will play KT on a bullpen day from the first game of the second half. Jang Pil-joon will go first.
