After the 2020 season, Kim Ha-seong stepped on the major league stage by signing with San Diego. However, his limited role as a backup agent made it difficult for him to fully adapt to the major leagues. The result was a batting average of .202, 8 homers, 34 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.

However, Kim Ha-seong, who showed further growth with a batting average of .251, 11 home runs, 59 RBIs and 12 steals last year when he established himself as the starting shortstop, this year, while playing as the starting second baseman, recorded a batting average of .264, 11 homers, 33 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. He has established himself as an indispensable player. In particular, with his special defense, he is already considered a strong candidate for the Gold Glove in the National League second baseman category.

In an interview with the media, Ha-seong Kim said, “In the first season of my major league debut, I only focused on one day every day. Because there were so many things I had to adapt to. It was a learning process for me. I was just busy going through each day. It was so hard. “, he confessed that there were many hardships in his debut season with a batting average of .202.

“Ha-seong Kim has grown from a bench player with a batting average of 202 (.202) two years ago to the most valuable player in San Diego this season,” said the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The media continued, “Ha-seong Kim, who is recording 116 in adjusted point production (wRC+), an indicator that does not measure scoring production, is marking third place in the team after Juan Soto (147) and Fernando Tatis Jr. (136), and is the best in the major leagues. Thanks to the level of defense, fWAR (contribution to victory over substitutes based on fan graphs) is 3.1, ranking third in the team after Tatis Jr. (fWAR 3.6) and Soto (fWAR 3.3).” He explained through statistics whether he was a valuable player.

Ha-seong Kim’s value as a batter can be attributed to his ability to cope with fastballs and his patience at bat.

Kim Ha-seong is showing a gradual improvement while taking an aggressive swing and calm patience at the same time in his at-bat. “When I became a professional player, I wanted to be a hitter who produced a lot of walks,” said Kim Ha-seong, “I became that type of hitter while gaining experience in Korea, and I want to do the same here.”
