Kim Ha-sung trade rumor is not serious, BOS → MIN wants

Minnesota local media mentioned the name of Kim Ha-seong (28).

‘Twins Daily’, which mainly deals with news from Minnesota, published an article on the 10th (Korean time) entitled ‘Is there a trade partner for Minnesota in the western region?’

This is where Kim Ha-seong’s name came from.

Kim Ha-seong participated in 150 games last season and recorded a batting average of 0.251, 11 home runs, 59 RBIs, 58 runs, and an OPS of 0.708, helping the team to advance to the National League Championship Series. He also boasted the best defense in the major leagues and was nominated for a Gold Glove.

However, Ha-seong Kim’s position this season was not very solid. As San Diego signed shortstop Xander Bogarts as a free agent this offseason, Ha-seong Kim is expected to lose his position.

In addition, there are many good infielders in San Diego, such as Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jake Cronenworth, in addition to Bogatz, so Kim Ha-seong is being mentioned as a trade sale recently.

Previously, the Boston Red Sox also took Ha-seong Kim. This is because the shortstop position left a vacancy when Bogarts was sent to San Diego.

In the midst of this, Minnesota expressed interest in Ha-seong Kim. Minnesota is in desperate need of reinforcements as it has lost large shortstop Carlos Correa.

The media pointed out, “The most logical candidate would be Kim Ha-seong. Tatis Jr. cannot play due to discipline, but Bogatz can take the shortstop position. Kim Ha-seong may move to find his place.”

He said, “Ha-seong Kim wasn’t extremely outstanding, but he played 150 games last season and recorded an adjusted OPS of 107. And he showed a solid defense. He has a contract until 2012, so it won’t be easy to recruit him.” 토토
