“We may try to recruit Kim Ha-sung.”
On the 16th (Korean time), the US’CBS Sports’ looked at the shortstop of the Atlanta Braves, who is likely to break up with National League Gold Glover Dansby Swanson in the 2022 season (Korean time). I had time.
Swanson began his professional career after being drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks with the 1st overall pick in the 1st round of the 2015 draft. As can be seen from his nomination order, Swanson, who was a ‘top prospect’, wore an Atlanta uniform through a trade and stepped on the big league stage in 2016.
In the first year of his debut, Swanson played an active role in 38 games with a batting average of 0.302 and an OPS of 0.803, clearly taking a ‘snow stamp’. 300 batting average never once, but recorded 775 hits, 102 home runs, 58 stolen bases, 411 RBIs, 433 runs batted in, 0.255 OPS, 0.738 in 827 games over 7 major league seasons. got the qualifications
It seems unlikely that Swanson will re-sign with Atlanta. Currently, negotiations between Swanson and Atlanta are not making much progress. ‘CBS Sports’ said, “Atlanta needs to find a shortstop. Swanson, who played for Atlanta from the 2016 season, remains in the free agent market.” “he explained.
‘CBS Sports’ mentioned Kim Ha-seong while suggesting several ways for Atlanta, which is likely to break up with Swanson, to reinforce the shortstop. With the San Diego Padres recently acquiring Xander Bogarts, they have a total of three shortstop resources, including Ha-sung Kim and Fernando Tatis Jr.
Ha-seong Kim had a batting average of 0.202 in 117 games when he first stepped on the major league stage last year. And he was named a finalist for the National League shortstop Gold Glove, and now his position has improved enough to be called a starter for San Diego.
‘CBS Sports’ said, “Atlanta can try to recruit Taylor Walls or Kim Ha-sung of the Tampa Bay Rays,” opening the door and saying, “Walls played nearly 200 games in the major leagues and did not produce many hits. When Wander Franco was there, Second base, when Franco was absent, he played shortstop and contributed to the team.”메이저사이트
Multiple media outlets in the United States predict that Ha-seong Kim will continue to play an active role after moving to second baseman despite San Diego’s recruitment of Bogatz. However, San Diego, which has three shortstops, can try to trade at any time depending on the team situation. From this point of view, Ha-sung Kim seems to have been mentioned by name.
‘CBS Sports’ also did not view the possibility of Kim Ha-sung’s trade as high. However, it was indirectly confirmed that the value of Ha-seong Kim was gradually increasing thanks to the proven defense and offense that improved over the years. The media added, “Kim Ha-seong, who had a better season in the major leagues than last year, seems to still be part of the team plan even though San Diego signed a contract with Bogarts.”
