Kim Ha-sung’s trade rumor is unusual He even wants BOS→MIN
Minnesota local media mentioned the name of Kim Ha-sung (28).
The “Twins Daily,” which mainly deals with Minnesota’s news, published an article on the 10th (Korea Standard Time) asking, “Will Minnesota have a trade partner in the western region?”
This is where Kim Ha-sung’s name came out.
Kim Ha-sung played in 150 games last season and helped his team advance to the National League Championship Series with a batting average of 0.251, 11 home runs, 59 RBIs, 58 points, and 0.708 OPS. He was also nominated for Gold Glove by showing off his top defense in the Major League.
However, Kim Ha-sung’s position this season was not very solid. Kim Ha-sung is expected to lose his position as San Diego recruited shortstop Xander Bogartz as FA this offseason.
In addition, there are many good infielders in San Diego, such as Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jake Cronenworth, except for Bogartz, so Kim Ha-sung has recently been mentioned as a trade sale.
Earlier, the Boston Red Sox also shot Kim Ha-sung. This is because there was a gap in the shortstop position as Bogartz left for San Diego.
Meanwhile, Minnesota expressed interest in Kim Ha-sung. Minnesota needs reinforcement as it has lost large shortstop Carlos Correa.
The media said, “The most logical candidate would be Kim Ha-sung. Tatis Jr. will not be able to play due to disciplinary action, but Bogartz could play as shortstop. “Kim Ha-sung may move to find his seat,” he pointed out.
“Kim Ha-sung was not incredibly good, but he recorded a rowing OPS 107 in 150 games last season. And he showed a solid defense. “He is an upgraded player from Kyle Palmer, who is expected to start the opening game,” he said. “He is now 27 years old and has a contract until 2027, so the recruitment will be tough 토토
