Even Kim Ha-seong was mentioned… Trade rumors pouring in for Miami’s 10-win pitcher

Pablo Lopez achieved his first 10 wins in his debut by forming a one-two punch with last season’s Cy Young Award winner Sandy Alcantara. While putting him up for trade, many teams rushed at him, and in the meantime, Kim Ha-seong’s name was mentioned.

On the 14th (Korean time), ‘MLB.com’ said, “There have been constant rumors of Lopez’s trade. He’s also reportedly been traded to the Minnesota Twins, and he’s a good fit for many teams. Here, San Diego can join the competition, and Kim Ha-sung can be traded to recruit him.” 안전놀이터

Lopez had a stellar performance last year. He pitched in 32 games, going 10-10 with a 3.75 ERA and 174 strikeouts. In particular, while recording an ERA of 2.86 in the first half, it was also mentioned as a candidate for the Surprise Cy Young Award. Currently, Lopez has two seasons left until free agency, and he has room to spare.

Accordingly, it is an opinion that San Diego will enter the scouting competition. San Diego has a solid rotation of Darvish Yu, Blake Snell, and Joe Muscrove, but there are not enough 4th and 5th starters after that. In response, he mentioned that he could send Kim Ha-seong and recruit Lopez.

Currently, Miami has Joey Wendell as their starting shortstop. Last year, Miguel Rojas, who was the starting shortstop, left for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Wendl is not enough to be used as the starting shortstop. Accordingly, it is evaluated that Ha-seong Kim will go well with Miami.

Kim Ha-seong, who had been rumored to trade with the Boston Red Sox, is attracting more teams’ attention this time with rumors of a transfer to Miami. Attention is focusing on which team he will head for.
