San Diego is having an away match against the 2023 Major League Baseball Oakland Athletics at Ring Central Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA on the 18th (Korean time). However, Ha-seong Kim was left out of the starting lineup.
Ha-seong Kim has been suffering from poor batting since the start of September. However, the day before (17th), he succeeded in escaping the long silence by playing a ‘multi-on-base’ game by getting a hit and a walk. In addition, he showed a sensational ‘glove toss’ in the 9th inning, contributing greatly to San Diego’s victory. However, Kim Ha-seong’s name could not be found on the starting list on the 18th.
According to local media outlets such as MLB.com and The Athletic, coach Bob Melvin said before the game, “Ha-seong Kim was excluded from the starting lineup due to abdominal pain.” At this time, Kim Ha-seong’s exact condition is not known. First of all, San Diego is also conducting a checkup to determine Kim Ha-seong’s condition.
Considering Kim Ha-seong’s actions so far, unless he is seriously injured, he is expected to play as a starter tomorrow (19th). However, if he is not in good condition, he may have to consider missing a few games. If this happens, it will be fatal for both San Diego and Kim Ha-seong.
Ha-seong Kim has played in 143 games this season and is recording 133 hits, 17 home runs, 58 RBIs, 81 runs, 36 stolen bases, a batting average of 0.265, and an OPS of 0.763. He is aiming to become the second Asian Major Leaguer to steal 40 bases, following the ‘legend’ Ichiro Suzuki, as well as hit 20 home runs. -The reason why we are aiming for up to 40 stolen bases.
If there is a hiatus due to injury, the possibility of achieving not only 40 stolen bases but also 20 home runs and 40 stolen bases as the end of the regular season approaches is bound to be noticeably lower.
Meanwhile, San Diego has Jurickson Profar (first baseman) – Fernando Tatis Jr. (right fielder) – Juan Soto (left fielder) – Manny Machado (designated hitter) – Xander Bogaerts (shortstop) – Luis Campusano (catcher) – Jose Ahsoka (center fielder) ) – Matthew Batton (second baseman) – Egui Rosario (third baseman) is playing the game with a starting lineup.
