Will it be a Seoul Series without a main character? The San Diego Padres are believed to have introduced all-around infielder Kim Ha-sung (28) to the trade market.
The Athletic of the U.S. said on the 17th (Korea Standard Time) that San Diego has entered a tightening budget and has put Kim Ha-sung and Jake Cronenworth (29) on the trade list.
In September, San Diego made a huge loan worth $50 million to address its short-term cash liquidity problem.
This means that the company could not afford the massive $250 million of payrolls last season. San Diego is looking to drop its payrolls to less than $200 million for the 2024 season.
Of course, disposing of high-paid players is a surefire way to solve San Diego’s financial problems. However, it would be difficult without annual salary subsidies.
In response, San Diego is looking to trade other resources instead of Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., Xander Bogaerts and Darvish Yu.
Under these circumstances, Kim Ha-sung, who is likely to enter the free agency market after the 2024 season, seems to be pushing for a trade. 월카지노
Kim Ha-sung is a middle in-field player who won the Gold Glove Award. He also showed ample potential in batting when he hit 17 home runs last season. As a result, the value of the trade is not small.
If Kim Ha-sung moves to a place other than the LA Dodgers, he will not be able to play in the Seoul Series at Gocheok Sky Dome on March 20 and 21, 2024.
In other words, it could be the Seoul Series without the main character. As a result, whether or not Kim Ha-sung will be traded is expected to draw attention throughout the offseason.
