Kim Ha-seong, another trade rumor “Miami is ideal for signing GG Kim Ha-seong”

In the offseason, trade rumors about Kim Ha-seong (29, San Diego Padres) continue. This time, he even pointed out the opposing team and player and mentioned the possibility of a trade.

On the 6th (Korean time),, the official Major League Baseball website, published an article titled '10 Quiet Teams That Can Make Noisy Movements'.

He mentioned teams that have not made any moves to date and predicted what could happen in the remaining offseason.

Among these, Kim Ha-seong's name appeared in the last one introduced, the Miami Marlins.

The media reported, “Miami added outfielder Vidal Brujan, catcher Christian Bettancourt and several relievers this offseason, but they could propose a trade using the starting pitcher.”

He continued, “Edward Cabrera, a 25-year-old right-handed pitcher, has shown the ability to strike out and induce ground balls, but has problems with his control. “A deal including Cabrera could address the infielder needs,” he added.

He said, “The most ideal scenario is to take advantage of Cabrera’s strengths and recruit Gold Glove player Kim Ha-seong.”

Cabrera, a right-handed pitcher from the Dominican Republic, debuted in the big league in 2021 and played three seasons. In 2022, he went 6-4 with an ERA of 3.02, and last year, he went 7-7 with an ERA of 4.24 in 99⅔ innings in 22 games. 카지노사이트랭크

Even though he was out of the rotation several times due to injury, his trade value increased as he performed well based on his fastball.

Accordingly, the calculation is that the relatively poor infield resources can be reinforced with Kim Ha-seong.

The possibility of Kim Ha-seong being traded was raised several times this offseason. The background is that San Diego did not even advance to the postseason despite spending a lot of money last offseason, and its finances were hit hard by the bankruptcy of a local broadcaster.

Moreover, Ha-seong Kim will qualify as a free agent (FA) after the 2024 season. Locally, there are predictions that FA Kim Ha-seong's contract will exceed $100 million.

For San Diego, which is already under a lot of pressure on the players' salaries, if it is difficult to catch Kim Ha-seong, it may be more profitable to trade him in advance to receive another player.

San Diego sent outfielder Juan Soto to the New York Yankees this offseason, and they can't even think of catching Cy Young pitcher Blake Snell and closer Josh Hader, who were released as free agents. As bullpen pitchers, Yuki Matsui and Ko Woo-seok, who are relatively cheap, were recruited. 섯다
