“Boston is in a situation where it must recruit an infielder.”
On the 11th (hereinafter Korean time), the MLB.com official website of the US Major League explained that ‘Boston infielder Trevor Story underwent surgery to strengthen the collateral ligament in his right elbow’.
Former shortstop Zander Bogarts signed as a free agent with the San Diego Padres. To make matters worse, even the story of being both a shortstop and second baseman underwent elbow surgery, leaving the Keystone duo.
MLB.com pointed out that ‘there is a big hole in Boston’.
The US local media ‘Gloucester Daily Times’ pointed out that ‘Boston must move surely’ and ‘Ha-seong Kim is a strong candidate’.
The media said, ‘Ha-seong Kim has been active as a top-notch shortstop in defense since coming from Korea in 2021. He showed a solid appearance in his hitting, such as equipping his long hitting power. Given his relatively low salary, he’s the perfect fit for Boston.
Kim Ha-seong appeared in 150 games last year and played an active role with a batting average of 2.5, 1 ri, 11 homers and 59 RBIs.
He was also recognized for his defensive skills, including being a finalist for the National League Golden Glove shortstop category.
Even for Ha-sung Kim, Boston can be a land of opportunity. Along with Bogatz’s transfer, Fernando Tatis Jr., who played a key shortstop, can also return this season.먹튀검증
MLB.com looked at the possibility of external recruitment in Boston. The media explained, “Cristian Arroyo and Enrique Hernandez are coming out as candidates to fill the void, but there are additional problems.” Arroyo has a history of injuries. Hernandez needs to recruit outfield resources when changing positions.
