‘Kim Ha-sung trade rumor’ remains only in Boston and Atlanta… What is the course of the 2023 season?

 What team’s uniform will Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) wear in the upcoming 2023 season?

Major League Baseball representative John Heyman wrote on the 12th (Korean time), “The Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins have agreed to a trade. .

Lohas’s strength is stable defense. He appeared in 719 career games as a shortstop, pitching 5559⅓ innings. Last year, along with Kim Ha-seong and Dansby Swanson (29, Chicago Cubs), he was included in the final three candidates for the National League Gold Glove.

The Dodgers made up for the departure of main shortstop Trey Turner (30, Philadelphia Phillies) with the recruitment of Rojas. As a result, rumors about Kim Ha-sung’s trade with the Dodgers have remained as mere rumors.

Ha-seong Kim proved competitive as a full-time shortstop last year, but his mood changed ahead of the 2023 season. San Diego signed shortstop Zander Bogaerts as a free agent, and Fernando Tatis Jr., who was suspended for taking a banned substance, is about to return.

In this trend, the possibility of Kim Ha-seong changing his position to second baseman is increasing. Also, rumors of a trade with the Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, Atlanta Braves, and Boston Red Sox, which want to strengthen their shortstop, came to mind. 스포츠토토

Following the Dodgers, Minnesota also completed the shortstop reinforcement by catching Carlos Correa (29). With Boston and Atlanta remaining among the trade candidates, chances are growing that they will head to Boston.

Boston’s starting shortstop Bogarts has left for San Diego. Trevor Story (31), who was able to become a shortstop, was also temporarily absent due to surgery on the medial collateral ligament in his right elbow. It takes up to 6 months to recover. It is urgent to fill the shortstop void. ‘The Athletic’, a sports media outlet, mentioned the possibility of a trade, such as mentioning Kim Ha-seong as a card to fill the gap in the story.

In addition, Atlanta is also being considered as a candidate. Atlanta, too, has not been able to sign a clear replacement since Swanson, the main shortstop, left.

Interest in Kim Ha-seong is still hot. Fans are interested in whether each team that wants to reinforce a shortstop will get Kim Ha-seong, and where that destination will be.
