  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Goes 4-for-5 with two thefts

    Kim went 4-for-5 with a double, one run scored and two steals in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

    Kim snapped an 0-for-17 skid in a big way Saturday, collecting three singles and a double while stealing third base twice. The 27-year-old breakout player has slowed down at the plate in September, hitting just .184 with three doubles, zero home runs, seven RBI, eight runs and nine steals across 99 plate appearances. Despite his relatively lethargic finish, the third-year infielder took a huge step forward in the 2023 campaign, posting a .262/.354/.401 season-long slash line and collecting 140 hits, 75 walks, 17 home runs, 84 runs and 38 stolen bases over 151 games (621 plate appearances) -- all career highs.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Scratched Sunday

    Kim was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Athletics for unspecified reasons.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Swift on basepaths Friday

    Kim went 0-for-5 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 8-3 win against Oakland.

    Kim wasn't able to record a hit in the contest, but he still tied together something for his fantasy managers to smile about with a sixth-inning steal. The theft was his 36th of the season, tied for seventh-most in the majors. Kim has been tailor-made for the Padres' leadoff spot with an 85th percentile walk rate (11.9 percent) and 80th percentile sprint speed, and he's added some pop with 17 homers along with 58 RBI, 80 runs and a .266/.356/.408 slash line over 578 plate appearances. Kim did turn his ankle on his stolen base Friday but stayed in the game and is expected to play Saturday, per the Associated Press.

The infielder is up to 35 steals this season, good for eighth in the majors. He's also slashing .270/.361/.416 with 17 home runs, 58 RBI, 80 runs scored and 20 doubles over 140 games.

    Kim went 2-for-4 with a walk, two RBI, three stolen bases and two runs scored in Friday's 11-2 win over the Astros.

For the year, he's 34-for-42 on pilfers while slashing a reliable .273/.364/.422 with 17 home runs, 57 RBI and 79 runs scored over 137 contests.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Second straight two-hit game

    Kim went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to St. Louis.

    After coming through with his second straight two-hit game, Kim is now sitting on an even .300 batting average since the beginning of June. In 78 total games over that stretch, Kim has supplemented the batting average with 12 home runs, 20 stolen bases, 56 runs and 33 RBI. The third-year infielder has been an underrated fantasy standout in 2023, and his ability to contribute quality numbers in five categories should make him a strong early-round building block in 2024 drafts.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Slugs grand slam in win

    Kim went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, a double, two total runs and a stolen base in a 6-2 win over the Marlins on Monday.

    Kim scored the Padres' first run in the first inning, leading off the frame with a double, stealing third base and racing home on a sacrifice fly. He made an even greater contribution in the second, belting a grand slam to left-center field after Miami starter Ryan Weathers loaded the bases on three straight walks. Kim could be found on fantasy waiver wires early in the campaign, but he's broken out and become a must-roster player, posting a .280/.370/.449 slash line along with 17 homers, 49 RBI, 71 runs and 28 thefts over 121 contests.

Since his 16-game hitting streak came to an end Aug. 12, Kim has come back down to earth a bit, slashing .162/.205/.297 over his subsequent nine contests.
