TSG Hawks News: Reymin Guduan
On January 26, the TSG Hawks announced the signing of Reymin Guduan. According to the team, the 31-year-old Dominican left-hander is likely to be the Hawks closer for the 2024 season.
Reymin Guduan began his professional career with the Houston Astros organisation in 2010 and eventually made his MLB debut in 2017. For the next few seasons, Guduan bounced up and down between MLB and Triple-A, pitching for the Astros and the Athletics. In over 39 innings in MLB, he appeared logged a 7.38 ERA and 1.87 WHIP.
After leaving the MLB system at the end of the 2021 season, Reymin Guduan wound up playing in the Dominican Winter League, Mexican League, and the Frontier League.
In 2023, he joined the Frontier League and posted a 2.25 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 24 innings as a reliever. Prior to his signing with the TSG Hawks, Reymin Guduan was active in the Dominican Winter League. In 22.2 innings, he registered a 1.99 ERA and 1.01 WHIP.
It is worth noting that back in August 2019, Reymin Guduan was suspended by the Astros for the remainder of that season for a disciplinary issue. Although the Astros did not elaborate further on the reasoning, online rumours suggested a locker room incident between Reymin Guduan and his Triple-A teammate Dean Deetz.
The TSG Hawks general manager told UDN that he is fully aware of this past incident. Once Reymin Guduan arrives in Taiwan, the team will monitor and help him understand the team’s requirements regarding discipline.
As of today, the TSG Hawks have Shōtarō Kasahara, Kento Onodera, Nick Margevicius, Steven Moya and Reymin Guduan as their foreign players for the 2024 CPBL season.
