Ha-Seong Kim’s MLB leap

Memes about Kim Ha-sung are popular in Korean media these days. “Kim Ha-sung’s baseball is impressive” Ha-Seong Kim(27), a member of the San Diego Padres in the U.S. Major League Baseball (MLB), has been named as the final three candidates in the National League Gold Glove shortstop category. However, Dansby Swanson (Atlanta Braves) was selected as the National League shortstop, not Kim Ha-Seong. Kim Ha-Seong jumped to the starting shortstop this year, his second year in the MLB, and showed excellent defense in the regular league and postseason. His first NL season offense was terrible, but he adapted to the team the next season and even became a perfect player. He is making hits almost every game.

Ha-Seong Kim’s def RAA(Runs Above Average) is 9.2, DRS(Defensive Run Save) is 10, UZR(Ultimate Zone Rating) is 4.7, and Fielding Percentage is 0.98. Stats prove to be a good enough player, but he is doing more than stats in the NL.
