“Kim Ha-sung, the most underrated player”…the beauty of Awesome Kim

“Kim Ha-seong (28-San Diego Padres) is the most underrated player.”

US local media ‘The Big Lead’ highlighted Kim’s performance on the 6th (KST).

In his third year in the big leagues, Kim has excelled both offensively and defensively. In 83 games, he is batting .254 (68-for-268) with 10 home runs, 31 RBIs, 15 doubles and a .752 OPS.

While the team has some quality infielders in Manny Machado (31) and Xander Bogaerts (31), Kim’s consistency has helped energize the lineup.토토사이트

Kim’s defense was solid enough to win him the National League Gold Glove last year. This year, he leads the league in Defensive Runs Saved (DRS), a key defensive metric, and also leads the league in Out Above Average (OAA), which is how many more outs he gets than the league average.

The offense is coming alive, too. His batting average, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage are all improving over time. At this rate, he’s on pace for career highs in home runs, RBIs, and stolen bases.

“Ha Sung Kim is the most underrated player in the game,” the publication said. “He was a low-cost infield utility addition for four years at the beginning of his career, but two and a half years later, it’s not crazy to say he’s the most underrated player in the league.”

“His offense is nothing to write home about, but he’s gotten better every season. With the addition of Bogaerts, he moved to second base and became one of the best defenders in the game.”

While Kim is primarily a second baseman, he also plays shortstop, third base, and wherever else the team needs him. Despite his versatility, his steady defense has made him a front-runner for the National League’s Platinum Glove Award.

“He’s been phenomenal wherever manager Bob Melvin has put him,” the publication said. There’s no question he’s the frontrunner for the National League’s Platinum Glove. San Diego has had several superstars struggle, but Kim has been a constant. “He’s been hitting for power, getting on base, and making key plays all season,” he said, praising a player who has more than paid for himself.
