Samsung announced on the 15th that it signed infielder David McKinnon for a total of $1 million, including a down payment of $100,000 and an annual salary of $900,000.

McKinnon, born in 1994, is a right-handed hitter with a sluggish physique of 188 centimeters tall and 90 kilograms.

He mainly played in the U.S. minor leagues and had a batting average of 0.140 and six RBIs in 22 games for two big league teams last year.

Triple-A in the minor leagues has a batting average of 0.318, 15 homers and 54 RBIs in 79 games.

In 2023, he played in 127 games for the Seibu Lions in the Japanese professional baseball league with a batting average of 0.259, 15 home runs and 50 RBIs.

“McKinnon is a player who can defend first and third bases and has a good batting eye and batting ability,” the Samsung club said, adding, “He will be able to adapt quickly based on his Japanese baseball experience.”메이저사이트
