Regarding the possibility of Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego)’s trade, public opinion on the Los Angeles Dodgers is in full swing every day. In an atmosphere of general improbability, the number of cases that would increase the possibility of a trade came out.
Dodgers Way, which covers the Los Angeles Dodgers in Fanside, an American columnist, argued on the 5th (Korean time) that “San Diego will not trade Kim Ha-seong to the Dodgers under any circumstances.”
There were two reasons. First, it was that Ha-seong Kim was not an all-star talent that the Dodgers needed, and second, that San Diego had no reason to give up Ha-seong Kim to its rival Dodgers.
It wasn’t that he was ignoring Kim Ha-seong. The Dodgers Way said, “Ha-sung Kim is entering his prime and has signed a contract worth $7 million per year through 2025. He is versatile and has good pitching at the plate, so he will be welcomed by almost any contender team. It is also highly efficient, so it will be worth it.”
Still, after asking himself, “Is Kim Ha-seong an All-Star? “I’m not going to overpay for non-All-Star resources.”
The Dodgers don’t really need a shortstop right now. There is a promising resource named Gavin Lux (26), and Max Muncy (33), Miguel Vargas (24), and Chris Taylor (33) are expected to form the infield.
But there are always variables. Dodgers Way hypothesized, “There are definitely a number of cases where the LA Dodgers trade Ha-sung Kim. If they are considering trading Taylor, Ha-sung Kim will be the perfect replacement.” Unless you want to improve your power, you won’t be able to do that,” he once again denied the possibility.
토토 After being drafted by Seattle in the 5th round of the 2012 draft, Taylor made his 2014 debut and 2016 draft to the Los Angeles Dodgers and blossomed his skills. He has a batting average of 0.256 in 861 games, 89 home runs, 352 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.765. Although his batting average is average, he is a player with outstanding utility as he can play all positions in the infield and outfield.
