Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres), who has versatile abilities, is giving his team’s manager something to worry about.

San Diego coach Mike Silt said in an interview with local media, including The San Diego Union Tribune, ahead of the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) exhibition game with the Chicago Cubs held at the Peoria Sports Complex in Arizona, USA on the 5th (Korean time), “Ha-seong Kim will be the regular.” “When a left-handed starting pitcher appears in the season, we are considering ways to use him as the number one hitter,” he said.

Kim Ha-seong, who was the starting batter in last year’s regular season, is mainly placed in the 5th batting order in this year’s exhibition games.

This is because of Manager Silt’s decision to use leading hitter Fernando Tatis Jr. as the starting number one hitter. 파워볼사이트

The joys and sorrows are mixed.Ha-Seong Kim, whose batting order has changed, is still swinging the bat, but Tatis Jr. is struggling.

Ha-seong Kim started as the 5th hitter in all 6 exhibition games until the 4th and recorded a batting average of 0.417, but Tatis Jr. had a poor batting average of 0.091.

Accordingly, Manager Silt made a change in the Cubs game held on the 5th.

Ha-seong Kim was put in number 1 and Tatis Jr. was put in number 2.

The results were good.Ha-seong Kim had 1 hit (double) and 1 run in 3 at-bats.Tatis Jr. also swung the bat for the first time in a long time with 3 hits and 1 RBI in 3 at-bats.

As Kim Ha-sung gets on base and Tatis Jr. shows up to solve the problem, Coach Silt’s heart seems to be moving even more.

The San Diego Union Tribune said, “Manager Silt is considering using Fernando Tatis Jr. as the number one hitter, but he is also thinking of placing him in the center of the batting line to increase his RBI,” adding, “This is because Ha-seong Kim has good ability as the number one hitter.” “Because,” he explained.

He continued, “In this day’s game, there was an ideal scene in which No. 1 hitter Kim Ha-seong hit a double and Tatis Jr. hit a timely hit.”

The reason Manager Silt limited Kim Ha-seong’s use of Kim Ha-seong in the first batting order to ‘left-handed pitchers’ is because Kim Ha-seong was particularly strong against left-handed pitchers.

Last year, Ha-seong Kim had a batting average of 0.302 and an on-base percentage of 0.376 against left-handed pitchers, and a batting average of 0.241 and an on-base percentage of 0.340 against right-handed pitchers.

In the regular season, Ha-seong Kim may play as the number one hitter when a left-handed pitcher takes the mound, and may take on the role of batting number five when a right-handed pitcher appears.

Ha-seong Kim has enough experience as the number one hitter.Last season, he mainly played as the number one hitter and posted not bad results with a batting average of 0.260, on-base percentage of 0.351, 17 home runs, and 60 RBI.

After getting on base, he set an example with his hustle play that did not spare his body.He stole 38 bases last season.

Meanwhile, Ha-seong Kim is doing an excellent job every time he takes on a new role.

Ha-seong Kim gave up the shortstop position to Sander Boharz last season and took charge of the second base position, but this year, he decided to take on the shortstop role again in accordance with the team’s decision to further strengthen its defense.

Ha-seong Kim is immediately showing off his top-level defense without any adaptation process. 슬롯
