Top Ha-seong Kim News

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Belts fourth homer

    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.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Poaching playing time from Abrams

    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.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Tallies three RBI on Thursday

    Kim went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run and three RBI in Thursday's 7-5 win over Cincinnati.

    Kim collected his first two doubles of the year in the victory, and his sixth-inning bases-loaded two-bagger drove in a trio of runs. The multi-hit performance was the first of the season for the infielder, who came into the contest batting just .194 overall. Kim upped his average to .250 with the big game, and he has registered two homers, eight RBI, 11 runs scored and a steal over 47 plate appearances this season.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Bat stays hot

    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.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Swats second homer

    Kim went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk, two total runs and two total RBI in Tuesday's 9-6 victory over the Reds.

    Kim kicked off the scoring for San Diego with a third-inning solo homer off Reiver Sanmartin, and he produced another run with a bases-loaded walk in the following frame. The infielder is batting just .194 on the season, but three of his seven hits have gone for extra bases (two homers, one triple), and he is tied for second on the team with 10 runs scored.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Remains in lineup versus lefty

    Kim will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    Kim will stick in the starting nine for the seventh time in eight games, but he's mostly been the beneficiary of the Padres opposing a heavy slate of left-handed pitching. With southpaw Reiver Sanmartin on the mound for Cincinnati in the series opener, the righty-hitting Kim will get the nod at shortstop once again over the lefty-hitting CJ Abrams, who still appears to have a hold on the larger side of a platoon at the position. Kim hasn't done much to take advantage of the uptick in playing time, as he's slashed .158/.273/.316 over his last six starts.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Smacks first homer

    Kim went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Reds.

    Kim took Buck Farmer yard in the seventh inning to collect his first homer of the season. He's primarily split playing time with CJ Abrams at shortstop to begin the season, though Kim was in the lineup Wednesday due to Luke Voit getting a day off. Kim's overall line remains unremarkable, but he has racked up eight runs scored across only 32 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Sitting Wednesday

    Kim is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

    Kim and CJ Abrams have had a near-even split of the shortstop work to begin the season, with the former picking up three starts at the position to the latter's four. With Kim off to a 2-for-10 start at the dish and Abrams having gone 1-for-11, neither player looks to have made much separation from the other in the job battle at this stage.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Not in Friday's lineup

    Kim is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Kim received the start at shortstop Opening Day and went 0-for-3 with a walk, two runs and a stolen base during the loss to Arizona. Top prospect CJ Abrams will step into the lineup for San Diego on Friday.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Swipes bag Opening Day

    Kim went 0-for-3 with a walk, two runs and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to Arizona.

    Though he didn't manage to produce any hits, Kim scored both of San Diego's runs out of the eighth spot in the order. He also nabbed the team's first theft of the campaign. Kim's opportunity for the Opening Day start was largely due to the absence of Fernando Tatis (wrist), though the recent promotion of CJ Abrams to the majors figures to cut into Kim's playing time to some extent.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Hitting .300 this spring

    Kim is slashing .300/.417/.350 with a double, an RBI, four runs and a stolen base over 24 Cactus League plate appearances.

    Kim's importance to the Padres' lineup grew considerably with the news that Fernando Tatis will miss multiple months due to a wrist injury. The predominant belief has been that Kim will open the campaign as San Diego's starting shortstop, and he hasn't done anything this spring to fall out of favor. However, the emergence of prized prospect CJ Abrams -- who is hitting .333 with a pair of homers in Cactus League action -- has introduced an alternate scenario in which Abrams could be fast-tracked to the majors, in which case Abrams would likely log plenty of time at shortstop.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Laces two extra-base hits

    Kim went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a strikeout in Thursday's 8-3 loss to the Dodgers.

    Kim got San Diego on the board with his second-inning shot to left off Los Angeles starter Tony Gonsolin and later knocked a ground-rule double in the sixth. The long ball is the 25-year-old's second in his last four games and Kim finishes September batting 6-for-23 with two doubles and the two homers, though that total came in just 11 games.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Goes deep in win over Giants

    Kim went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in Thursday's 7-6 victory over San Francisco.

    Kim entered the day mired in a 5-for-38 skid over his last 28 games, but he produced an RBI single in the first inning and added a solo homer in the sixth. It was both Kim's first homer and first multi-hit performance since Aug. 1. He's hitting just .206/.273/.347 with seven home runs and five stolen bases (six attempts) in 277 plate appearances this season.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Not starting Saturday

    Kim isn't starting Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

    Kim is likely in line for increased playing time since Jake Cronenworth is dealing with a fracture on his left ring finger, but he'll remain out of the lineup Saturday. Fernando Tatis will shift to shortstop while Tommy Pham starts in left field.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Sitting again Saturday

    Kim isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Kim has gone 3-for-9 with a home run, a double, three runs and three RBI across his last four appearances, but he'll be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game. Jake Cronenworth will shift to shortstop while Eric Hosmer remains at first base. Expect the Padres to proceed with Cronenworth rather than Kim as the team's primary option at shortstop while Fernando Tatis (shoulder) remains without a timeline to return from the injured list.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Takes seat Friday

    Kim isn't starting Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Kim has had increased playing time at shortstop recently with Fernando Tatis (shoulder) sidelined, but he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight game. Jake Cronenworth will start at shortstop while Eric Hosmer takes over at first base.
