‘How much better do I have to be?’ Kim Ha Sung is undervalued again

Ha-Sung Kim, 28, is at the top of every statistical category with his stellar hitting and defense. However, Kim’s name was not on the All-MLB team projections.토스카지노

Major League Baseball released its 2023 All-MLB team projections on its official social media accounts on Nov. 16. It consists of first and second teams.

Kim’s name was nowhere to be found. For second basemen, Luis Araez was named to the first team and Marcus Seamans to the second team.

Of course, this list is not based on FWAR, which is the leading metric for overall performance. However, Kim’s overall numbers are clearly higher than Araez’s on the First Team.

Through the last 15 days of the season, Kim is batting .283 with 15 home runs, 42 RBIs, 65 runs scored, 109 hits, a .377 OPS and an .821 slugging percentage in 114 games.

His defense is also among the best in the majors, as he has played second, third, and shortstop. He also has 27 stolen bases (6 caught).

As a result, Kim ranks 13th overall in FWAR at 4.4 and third overall in BWAR at 5.7. However, he’s not getting the recognition he deserves.

Catcher Sean Murphy, first baseman Freddie Freeman, second baseman Araez, third baseman Jose Ramirez, and shortstop Corey Seager round out the infield for the First Team.

In the outfield, Ronald Acuña Jr.-Mookie Betts-Juan Soto. The designated hitter was Shohei Ohtani. The pitchers are Gerrit Cole, Framber Valdes, Spencer Strider, Zach Gallon, and Kevin Gaussman.

Catcher Will Smith, first baseman Matt Olson, second baseman Simeon, third baseman Matt Chapman and shortstop Bo Bissett round out the infield on the second team.

The outfield then consisted of Luis Robert Jr-Adolis Garcia-Corbin Carroll. The designated hitter was Jordan Alvarez. The pitching staff is Blake Snell-Nathan Ivoldi-Justin Steele-Sonny Gray-Logan Webb.
