Dutch right-hander Rick van den Hurk is under pressure in the professional Korea Baseball Organisation (KBO). His club, the Samsung Lions, sent him down to the Minors, as he is supposed to find his form. In his first season in Korea, the 28-year-old has a 3-5 record with an ERA of 4.50 in 13 games according to Honkbalsite.com. He might get another opportunity with the reigning KBO champion following the All-Star game on July 19. Van den Hurk has lost three of his last four starts and gave up eight hits and three runs in just four innings in his last outing.
