Scratch Kingham Signs With KBO’s SK Wyverns


Right-hander Nick Kingham has marked with SK Wyverns of the Korea Baseball Organization, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

The 28- year-old Kingham is best known for his residency with the Pirates, who picked him in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. Kingham in the long run turned into a top 100 prospect, however the 6-foot-5 thrower has bombed in the majors since appearing in 2018. Crosswise over 131 2/3 innings in the bigs separated among Pittsburgh and Toronto, Kingham has dealt with a not exactly outstanding 6.08 ERA/5.58 FIP with 7.86 K/9, 3.49 BB/9 and a 39.5 percent groundball rate.

The delicate hurling Kingham, who has arrived at the midpoint of not exactly 92 mph on his fastball, has been exceptional in Triple-A ball. Kingham has posted a 4.00 ERA with 7.5 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 over 297 outlines at that level. He’ll currently attempt to exceed those figures and remake his stock in Korea.
