Kalian Sams ends season in Mexico
GUASAVE (Mexico) -
Dutch outfielder Kalian Sams has ended his season in Mexico.
The 27-year Sams and his team Algodoneros de Guasave came to a joint agreement to end his contract.
Kalian Sams initially started the season well in the Liga Mexicana del Pacifico.
He doubled and scored in his debut-game.
In his third game for Guasave, Sams hit two homeruns (3-run and solo) and contributed to a 7-1 victory.
But in recent weeks, Sams struggled at the plate and his batting average dropped.
Sams, who was the team's designated hitter, played in 22 games and batted .192 (15-for-78) with three doubles, one triple and four homeruns.
He scored 11 runs and batted in 13, but also got 34 strikeouts.
To focus entirely on next season, Sams decided to return home to the Netherlands and get ready for next season.
