Kim Ha-sung who reserved “Career High”…Ryu Hyun-jin is about to return

Korean major leaguers are anticipating a hotter second half than the first half. After taking a short break during the All-Star break, he will go on a sortie in the second half.

The Korean major leaguer who had the hottest first half of the 2023 major league season is Ha-seong Kim (San Diego Padres).

Kim Ha-seong, who played an active role as the starting shortstop last year by filling the vacancy of Fernando Tatis Jr., gave up the shortstop position ahead of this season when free agent (FA) Zander Bogatz joined. This raised concerns about Kim Ha-seong’s position, but it was just a matter of reason.

Recognized for his defense full of stability early on, he became responsible for second base among outstanding infielders.

He also showed his presence sexually. 메이저사이트 주소 Kim Ha-seong recorded a batting average of 0.258, 10 homers, 31 RBIs and 16 stolen bases in 85 games. The win contribution to substitution (WAR) is 4.1 based on the baseball reference, which is 5th overall in the major leagues.

Previously, Kim Ha-seong’s best major league performance was a batting average of 0.251, 11 homers, 59 RBIs and 12 stolen bases in 150 games recorded last year.

His year is one step closer to his single-season home run record in the first half, and his stolen bases are already on record.

Considering that San Diego played 90 games in the first half and left 72 games in the second half, it is not unreasonable to say that Ha-seong Kim booked his best season. It is also worth looking forward to achieving 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases, the second Korean hitter since Choo Shin-soo (SSG Landers).

Choi Ji-man (Pittsburgh Pirates), who recovered from a left Achilles tendon injury at the end of the first half and returned to the big leagues, will start running in earnest in the second half.

Choi Ji-man, who left due to an injury in April, returned to the major leagues on the 8th. He was silent in the comeback game after 85 days, but he hit one hit against the Arizona Diamondbacks on the 9th, and the next day, against the Arizona Diamondbacks on the 10th, he showed off his strength by giving up two hits, including a home run.

In order to soothe the disappointment of the first half, which ended with a batting average of 0.159 in 12 games, 3 homers and 4 RBIs, a rebound in the second half is absolutely necessary.

‘Korean Monster’ Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) is in the final stage of a year-long rehabilitation.

Ryu Hyun-jin, who ended the season early after undergoing elbow ligament joint surgery in June of last year, has recently regained his health and is starting a rehabilitation game.

He recorded 3 innings, 4 hits, 5 strikeouts and 1 run in the Minor League Rookie League on the 5th, and on the 8th, he checked his actual game sense with Single A in 4 innings, 3 hits, 1 strikeout and no runs.

As the time to return was set after the All-Star break, the day to see Ryu Hyun-jin on the mound in the major leagues is getting closer.

Ryu Hyun-jin is expected to appear in several more minor league games, check his physical condition, improve his condition, and then return to the major leagues.

Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh), who had his first major league opening game this year, ended the first half with a batting average of 0.238, 2 home runs, 19 RBIs, 37 points and 20 stolen bases in 76 games. He strengthened his presence by ranking first on the team in steals and fifth in runs scored.

On the 3rd, he was put on the injured list due to a left ankle injury and ended the first half, but he is aiming for a revival in the second half.

Meanwhile, Major League Baseball, which is in the All-Star break, will take a break on the 14th and stretch again on the 15th.
