  • Kim will sit Monday against Milwaukee. Kim has taken over an everyday role in the absence of Fernando Tatis Jr. (wrist), as his off day is his first since late April. He's swinging a much better bat than he did in his rookie season, though his .222/.313/.402 slash line is still nothing special. Jake Cronenworth slides to shortstop Monday, with Robinson Cano starting at second base.

  • Kim went 2-for-5 with a double, run and RBI in Sunday's 10-1 win over the Giants. Kim was able to beat out prospect CJ Abrams for the top shortstop job just under two weeks ago after the latter was demoted to Triple-A El Paso, but Kim has since cooled off at the plate. Even after Sunday's two-hit effort, Kim is slashing .219/.235/.313 over his last eight games. Kim doesn't look to be in imminent danger of losing the everyday job to Abrams or anyone else in the near future, but the 26-year-old is expected to transition back into a utility role whenever Fernando Tatis (wrist) is cleared to return from the 60-day injured list.

  • Kim went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two additional runs scored in Friday's 11-6 win over Atlanta. The 26-year-old infielder put together his first multi-hit performance since April 29, which was also the last time he left the yard. Kim went 4-for-36 (.111) during the 11 games in between, and on the season he's slashing .224/.340/.435 with four homers, one steal, 15 RBI and 17 runs. With Fernando Tatis (wrist) likely still more than a month away from his return, Kim should continue to hold down the fort at shortstop despite his inconsistency.

  • Kim will start at shortstop and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Pirates. Though the Padres will include the righty-hitting Kim and lefty-hitting CJ Abrams in the lineup Sunday as their starters up the middle, the former looks to have moved ahead of the latter on the depth chart at shortstop. Abrams was on the bench for both of the first two games of the series in Pittsburgh, despite the Pirates bringing a pair of right-handers (Zach Thompson and JT Brubaker) to the hill for those games. Kim has helped his case for sticking in a full-time role at shortstop by going 7-for-15 with two home runs, three doubles, seven RBI and five runs over his last four starts.

  • Kim went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, an additional run scored and a strikeout Friday against the Pirates. He was hitting .182 on April 24 and is now hitting .273 just a few days later, having notched six hits in his last three games. Kim also has two home runs and seven RBI over this three-game heater.
