KBO’s Eagles sign ex-MLB outfielder Mike Tauchman, bring back 2 American starters

The South Korean baseball club Hanwha Eagles announced Friday they’ve acquired a former major league outfielder, Mike Tauchman.

The Eagles are also bringing back their two American starters from this past season, Nick Kingham and Ryan Carpenter.

Tauchman, 31, agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract, the maximum amount allowed for first-year foreign players. The outfielder will make $700,000 in guaranteed salary and $300,000 in signing bonus.

A 10th round draft pick by the Colorado Rockies in 2013, Tauchman made his major league debut with the Rockies in 2017. He later went on to play for the New York Yankees and the San Francisco Giants.

Tauchman’s best season came with the Yankees in 2019, when he had 13 home runs and 47 RBIs in 87 games. In 257 career big league games, Tauchman had 17 home runs, 78 RBIs, 17 steals and a .231/.326/.378 line.

Random aside, but the Korean show Stove League about the offseason in the KBL, is pretty fun.

We should have a thread, it'll give us something to do during a lockout.

am i the only person who didn't go for stove league? it's worth a shot - but i stopped after three episodes. my issue might have been that some of the baseball talk was clearly informed but then the protagonist would make decisions for reasons that were nonsensical to me (as opposed to the writing or acting more generally - this is more personal hangup). loved the specificity and off-field focus though.

It's not perfect, and the analysis is a weird mix of referencing WAR and then talking about clutch stats, but I thought it was fun diversion from winter.
