Kim Ha-seong had the Best Season... Will he Soar Higher as a Shortstop Next Year?





A season where Bae Ji-hwan showed potential… Ji-Man Choi is at a crossroads in survival in the big league.

The suspended game between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets, scheduled for the 3rd (Korean time), was canceled as it was unrelated to the postseason matchup, bringing the American professional baseball Major League (MLB) regular season to an end.

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), whose team advanced to the postseason, still has fall baseball remaining, while Kim Ha-seong (27), Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres), and Bae Ji-hwan (24, Pittsburgh Pirates) have finished their seasons. 온라인카지노

Among all Korean fielders, Ha-Seong Kim had the second most successful season after Shin-Soo Choo (41, SSG Landers).

Although his performance declined at the end of the season due to physical decline, he played well with a batting average of 0.260 (140 hits in 538 at-bats), 17 home runs, 60 RBI, 84 runs, 38 stolen bases, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.749.

He still had the best defensive ability in the league, and even showed an eye for hitting, raising expectations for next season.

Based on his current performance, Kim Ha-seong is likely to be the third Korean player to receive the most votes in the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) vote.

Although it is difficult to actually win the award, he is expected to receive votes for the first time since Choo Shin-soo, who ranked 14th and 12th in 2010 and 2013, respectively, and Ryu Hyun-jin, who ranked 19th in 2019.

He is also looking to win the Gold Glove Award for Best Defender, Second Base Player or Utility Player.

Ha-seong Kim, who began his big league career in San Diego in 2021, has a four-year contract ending next year.

If he maintains the same batting production and defensive ability as this year next year, he will be worth a shot at signing a large contract.

In the United States, it is expected that San Diego will pursue a contract extension with Kim Ha-seong next season in earnest.

In this atmosphere, there is a story that could raise Kim Ha-seong's ransom even further.

Sander Boharz, who played as San Diego's starting shortstop this season, said in an interview with the San Diego Tribune, a local San Diego newspaper, on the 2nd, "I have no intention of insisting on playing shortstop next year."

While Bohartz's preferred position is known to be second base, there is a high possibility that Kim Ha-seong will return to shortstop.

Sports Illustrated predicted, “Ha-Sung Kim has solidified his position as a key cog of the team in offense and defense this year.

Even if Boharz changes positions, there will be no major problems thanks to Ha-Sung Kim’s versatile talent.”

If Kim Ha-seong, who unfortunately missed joining the '20-20 Club' this year with 17 home runs -38 stolen bases, achieves the record at shortstop next year, his value is expected to soar through the roof.

Bae Ji-hwan, who played as Pittsburgh's center fielder and second baseman, this season was 'half a success.'

In 111 games, he left with a batting average of .231 (77-for-334), 2 home runs, 32 RBI, 54 runs, 24 stolen bases, and an OPS of .608.

Although it may be disappointing to only look at his batting performance, he instead received attention for his excellent base running and brilliant defense.

The Pittsburgh team expects Bae Ji-hwan, the team's most stolen base player this season, to grow into the next generation's number one hitter as he gains experience and produces more quality batted balls.

Among the trio of Korean big leaguers, Ji-Man Choi, the eldest, had the most difficult season.

He started the new season in Pittsburgh, but played only 23 games due to injury, and even when he moved to San Diego in the second half of the season, he suffered from injuries and poor performance.

His performance this season is a batting average of 0.163 (17 hits in 104 at-bats) in 39 games, 6 home runs, 13 RBI, 12 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.624.

This is the fewest game appearances and report card since 2018, when he made the leap to a semi-major level player in the big league.

Choi Ji-man, who qualified as a free agent at the end of this season, will have to worry about survival in the big league next year.
