Kim Ha-seong, 8th in 2024-25 FA Power Rankings “Above-average player, 5-year contract possible”

Ha-seong Kim of San Diego is entering the ground during the second game between the San Diego Padres and the LA Dodgers in the official opening game of the 2024 U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB) World Tour Seoul Series held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Guro-gu, Seoul on the 21st.

San Diego Padres infielder Ha-seong Kim (29) was ranked 8th in the 2024-25 FA Power Rankings.

MLB Trade Rumors, which covers major league news, announced on the 28th the rankings of players who will become FAs in the 2024-25 season. Ha

-seong Kim ranked 8th among major leaguers. Ha-seong Kim, who signed a 4+1 contract worth up to $39 million with San Diego ahead of the 2021 season, will have his four-year contract expire after this season. There is still an option for the 2025 season by mutual agreement, but it is questionable whether the option will be exercised.

The media evaluated Kim Ha-seong, last year’s Gold Glove winner, as top-tier among free agent players for his defensive ability.

MLB Trade Rumors said, “(Kim Ha-seong) is one of the best defensive players,” and “San Diego preferred his defense, so they assigned him to shortstop this year. “We pushed Xander Bogaerts (who was previously a shortstop) to second base,” he explained. 카지노사이트

However, he is evaluated as weak in offense compared to defense. Ha-Seong Kim has so far recorded a batting average of 0.223, 62 hits, 10 home runs, 37 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.

He also has an OPS of 0.718, which includes on-base percentage and slugging percentage. The media said, “His offensive profile is not that interesting,” and “He is a decent hitter, but his BABIP (batting average on balls in play) is not good at 0.236, which reduces his overall performance.” This meant that he was not lucky as the probability of hitting a ball in play was lower than his career average. The media explained, “Kim Ha-seong’s hitting indicators are not impressive overall.” MLB Trade Rumors said, “After a poor first season in the big leagues, he recorded WAR (Win Contribution Above Replacement) of 4 or more over the next two years,” and added, “He will maintain a similar pace this year as well.” The media predicted, “Kim Ha-seong’s contact ability, defense, and base running make him an above-average starting player,” and “he will be able to sign a 5-year contract as a free agent.” Yankees outfielder Juan Soto was ranked first in the preliminary free agent power rankings. Second place was Baltimore Orioles pitcher Corbin Burns. Starting from third place, Willy Adames (Milwaukee), Alex Bregman (Houston), and Max Fried (Atlanta) were named in that order. 토토사이트 추천
