“May you be the best defender” Kim Hae-Sung’s fantasy hosebee makes 457.3 billion won third baseman ‘wide open’
“I want him to be the best defender.”
Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) was nominated for the National League shortstop Gold Glove for the 2022 season. Although he didn’t win, it was recognition that his defence was among the best in the National League. After moving to second base this year to make way for Xander Bogaerts at shortstop, Kim’s defence remains unrivalled.
The Athletic reported on Friday that Kim could challenge for the Gold Glove at second base in the National League this season. Through the past four days, San Diego’s team DRS of 16 is tied for fifth in the National League, but Kim leads all major league second basemen with 13.토토사이트
The Athletic said, “Originally, when Kim signed with San Diego, he was known for his high offensive potential. However, Kim could become the first Korean player to win the top defensive award in the major leagues.” In fact, there are defensive highlight films of Kim almost every game.
He told The Athletic, “At first, I never thought I would be a Gold Glover here. But now, in my third year, I’m starting to realise that I can win awards. I just have to go out there, play hard, and do what I’m supposed to do. Then maybe the rewards will come.”
One such defensive mentor is star third baseman Manny Machado, who signed an 11-year, $350 million extension this year. “He’s been my defensive mentor since day one,” Kim said. In fact, The Athletic recalled that Kim even liked Machado after a rainout against the Chicago Cubs on the 4th. “Both players had big smiles on their faces after Kim made a difficult but accurate throw to first base,” the report said.
“He doesn’t care what position he plays. I want him to be the best defender he can be.” “It took him a while to get comfortable,” said manager Bob Melvin, “but I can’t say enough good things about his defence.”
