Nicholas Kingham

Last on the list is reliever Nick Kingham, who joined the Blue Jays midway through the 2019 season from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for cash considerations. With the Blue Jays, the right-hander pitched to a 3.00 ERA through 21.0 innings, allowing seven earned runs off 24 hits while splitting time between the active roster and AAA. Kingham would be DFA’d on August 25th to make room for Clay Buchholz, who was returning from the 60-day IL, and Kingham was released a couple of days later.

The Texas product signed with Sk Wyverns (now SSG Landers) for the 2020 season and would be released halfway through the year after suffering an elbow injury, which limited him to just two starts, and eventually signed with the Hanwha Eagles for the 2021 season on November 28th. After posting a 3.19 ERA through 25 starts for the Eagles that year, Kingham re-signed with the organization for the 2022 campaign, worth a reported $900,000.

Kingham started well once again for the Eagles, sporting a 2.76 ERA through three starts before another arm injury shut him down, with the club releasing him on June 2nd, making him a free agent once again.
