Ha-seong Kim (28, San Diego Padres) is emerging as a hope to lead the San Diego Padres’ miraculous advance into fall baseball. There are many 카지노사이트 superstars with high salaries such as Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Juan Soto, but Kim Ha-seong is the hottest hitter in the Padres right now.
The American media ‘Sports Illustrated (SI)’ said on the 25th (Korean time), “Ha-seong Kim is the brightest spot in San Diego, which is in a dark situation this season. His growth this year is quite impressive, and he is helping San Diego survive in the playoff race,” he said, highlighting Kim Ha-sung’s brilliant performance.
San Diego, a member of the National League West Division, remains in 4th place with a record of 61 wins and 67 losses despite having many star players. The wild card rankings are also down to 7th, so in order to advance to fall baseball, they have to narrow the 6-game lead against the 3rd place Arizona Diamondbacks in the remaining 34 games. Of course, the first step is to beat the 6th ranked Miami Marlins, 5th ranked Cincinnati Reds, and 4th ranked San Francisco Giants.
His hopes for the postseason are gradually fading, but Kim Ha-seong is having his best season in the three years since his major league debut, so-called “hard carry” for the team. Kim Ha-seong’s third year in the big leagues was a batting average of 2.8%, 17 homers, 49 RBIs, 28 stolen bases, and 72 runs in 123 games, OPS of .816. He is ranked 2nd and 4th in home runs, runs batted in, and slugging percentage (.448). He quickly rose from a backup infielder to a leader in San Diego’s offense.
San Diego needs a miracle to advance to fall baseball. According to SI, Kim Ha-seong, who beat the superstars and became the leader of the batting line, said, “The current team is not in a very good situation, but we will never give up. San Diego has a strong spirit,” he said, uniting the players.
SI said, “While hopes for San Diego’s fall baseball are dwindling, Ha-seong Kim is rather simplifying his approach. San Diego doesn’t give up (as Kim Ha-sung said), they want to right the wrongs and get back into the competition. Obviously, they will get a chance to turn the situation around,” he said, brightening the prospect of San Diego’s advance into the postseason, led by Kim Ha-seong.
