Just thinking about it almost made me dizzy I almost backed up for 2 years in a row
The memory of last winter, when Kim Ha-sung (27, San Diego) almost turned into a backup once again, was mentioned again.
The Athletic, a U.S. media outlet, held an interview with San Diego fans on the 29th (Korea Standard Time). Among them was the Jose Ramirez (30, Cleveland) trade, which San Diego and Cleveland seriously discussed last winter.
A San Diego fan named Benjamin said, “How close was our team to recruiting Ramirez? Who were you going to give to Cleveland in exchange for that? If Ramirez had come, which position would he have played in?”
Athletic said, “San Diego has made a lot of efforts to recruit Ramirez, and CJ Abrams would have been the main player in return for the trade. Will Myers was also included, he said. “Before Ramirez agreed to an extension contract with Cleveland, Cleveland was last checking on Chris Padge, who plays in the Cactus League. Considering Myers’ salary, there must have been something more involved,” he said.
However, fortunately for Kim Ha-sung, the trade did not take place. Shortly after the opening, Ramirez agreed to a five-year, $124 million extension contract with Cleveland, and rumors of a trade transfer were completely over. Kim Ha-sung may have had to seriously consider transferring to other teams if he joined San Diego, as he mainly played as a second baseman and a third baseman.
“If Ramirez had come, he would have played second base. In other words, Jake Cronenworth would have played the role of starting shortstop and Kim Ha-sung as a bench. Or Cronenworth would have played first base and Eric Hosmer and Luke Voight would have been divided into designated hitters,” he replied.
Kim Ha-sung was able to show his true worth thanks to the failure of the Ramirez trade and Tatis Jr.’s opening and closing due to wrist surgery. He plays 452 innings as a shortstop and 127이니 innings as a third baseman, completely filling the defensive gap between Tatis Jr. and Machado. Kim Ha-sung is also recording 6 (shortstop 4 and 3rd baseman 2) in the defensive indicator DRS (defensive run save), which points out how high and lower individual defense is than the average Major League defender. In addition, the fWAR (winning contribution compared to substitute players in the fan graph) is 1.4, ranking fourth among the San Diego fielders 토토추천
At-bat, he is disappointed with a batting average of 0.225, four home runs and 26 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.658 in 67 games, but it is enough to contribute to San Diego’s fourth place overall in the National League. Recently, MLB.com praised Kim Ha-sung, saying, “Kim Ha-sung deserves to be included in the outstanding second-year roster just by replacing Tatis Jr., who was injured this season.”
