Kim Ha-sung Oh My! San Diego All-Star Second baseman Trades
San Diego has launched a winning move to recruit “All-Star Second” as a trade.
Major League Baseball’s official website (MLB.com) reported on the 26th (Korea time) that the San Diego Padres will trade three promising players to the Pittsburgh Pirates and receive cash with Adam Fraser.
Fraser batted in Pittsburgh this year.He is currently playing with 324 home runs and 32 RBIs, and boasts a high level of accuracy, ranking first in the Major League with 125 hits. Based on his performance, he was also selected as a National League All-Star this season.
It is the first transfer of his life for Fraser. As a player named by Pittsburgh in the sixth round of the 2013 rookie draft, Fraser made his major league debut in 2016 in a Pittsburgh uniform. Last year, his performance was low with .230.7 home runs and 23 RBIs, but his batting average grew to the point of looking at his first .300 batting average this year.
It is a trade where Kim Ha-sung’s position can be shaken. Kim Ha-sung, who plays the role of an infield utility player, has a season batting average of .Staying at 206, it is not a big help to the offense. In addition, Fraser is not so happy for Kim Ha-sung as he can defend not only the second baseman but also the left fielder.
