By Oh Sang-jin Reporter= Drew Luchinski (35, Oakland Athletics), who successfully rejoined the major leagues after four seasons with the NC Dinos of the KBO, has had his season cut short due to injury.
“Luchinski is scheduled to undergo back surgery (and) is out for the season,” MLB.com’s Oakland beat writer Martin Gayegos said on 19 April (ET). Luchinski’s first year back in the majors after a five-year absence was marred by injuries.
After making his big league debut with the Los Angeles Angels in 2014, Luchinski spent time with the Minnesota Twins (2017) and Miami Marlins (2018) before moving on to the KBO. As NC’s ace from 2019 to 2022, Luchinski compiled a career record of 53-36 with a 3.06 ERA in 121 appearances over four seasons. He recorded double-digit wins in three consecutive years (19-15-10), except for 2019 (nine), his first season in the KBO, and was a key part of the NC’s first-ever combined title in 2020.카지노사이트
Ruchinski’s performance earned him a two-year, $8 million deal with Oakland to return to the big leagues. Injuries plagued him from spring training, however. After a slow start to the season with a hamstring issue, Luchinski was plagued by injuries throughout the first half of the year, including gastrointestinal, knee, and hip problems.
Already placed on the 60-day disabled list (IL) on 21 June, Luchinski finished his first season with a disappointing 4-4 record and a 9.00 ERA.
