Player Outlook
Some saw Ha-seong Kim having a good year for a loaded San Diego lineup but we are not aware of anyone who projected him to be the third-best fantasy batter on the team over the course of the full season. Kim set a professional career-best with his 38 steals and also surfaced the power and run-scoring abilities the marketplace hoped for from him in 2022. He has increased his ability to accept walks in each of his three seasons with San Diego and his batting average has improved in kind. His batting average has room for improvement, and it must come from him improving his outputs against righties as he has been a below-average producer against righties (95 wRC+ last season) while excelling against southpaws (148 wRC+ last season.) The triple position eligibility is going to further push up his draft day price for fantasy managers whereas he was one of the more incredible fantasy bargains this time last year.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Swats second homer Friday

    Kim went 1-for-5 with a solo home run against the Dodgers in Friday's 8-7 extra-innings victory. Kim hit one of four long balls for San Diego in the victory, taking Yoshinobu Yamamoto deep in the second inning. The long ball was his second of the campaign and sixth extra-base hit overall -- he also has two doubles and two triples. Kim has a modest .217/.284/.417 slash line through 67 plate appearances, but he has provided decent production with nine runs, eight RBI and four stolen bases.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Triple, stolen base in win

    Kim went 2-for-4 with a triple, two runs scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over Chicago. Kim came around to score San Diego's second run of the game on a fielder's choice play after reaching on an infield single and later stealing third. The shortstop then added a triple in the fourth before coming around to score a second time as the Padres jumped back out to a two-run lead. Kim is still batting just .182 in April following the two-hit performance, though he's now hit safely in three of his last four contests. It also marked his second triple in his last three games.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Nabs second steal

    Kim went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-4 win against the Giants. Kim has reached base four times -- three via walk -- through three games this season, and he's stolen a base on half of those occasions. He recorded a career-high 38 steals in 47 attempts last year and appears to have the green light to run frequently this season. Kim has yet to get his bat going with just one hit in 10 at-bats, but the thefts have helped highlight what he can provide for fantasy managers.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Back in action Friday

    Kim (back) is starting at shortstop and batting fifth in Friday's Cactus League game against the Giants. Kim has been sidelined by back spasms the past few days but is ready to retake the field for Friday's contest. The 28-year-old is shifting to shortstop this season after winning a Gold Glove at second base for the Padres in 2023.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Out until Friday with back spasms

    Kim will be held out of action until Friday after experiencing back spasms during drills Tuesday, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Acee says Kim was virtually pain-free by Tuesday evening, but he's being held out Wednesday as a precaution and the Padres are off Thursday. Xander Bogaerts slid over to his old position at shortstop to cover for Kim on Wednesday. Kim has had a nice start to Cactus League play, going 6-for-15 with a home run and two stolen bases.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Shifting to shortstop full-time

    Padres manager Mike Shildt said Friday that Kim will be the team's starting shortstop this season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Xander Bogaerts will shift to second base to form the Padres' new double-play combo. Bogaerts has never played second base before and his defensive metrics at shortstop recently have been solid. However, Kim is undoubtedly the superior defender at short and the Padres don't seem to have any concern about Bogaerts' ability to adapt to the keystone.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Held out again Wednesday

    Kim (abdomen) remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Rockies, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Still feeling soreness

    Kim "is still experiencing some abdominal discomfort," Annie Heilbrunn of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Kim was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's contest due to the soreness, and according to the report the team is still trying to identify what exactly is ailing him. One way or another, Kim will not start Monday for a second straight day.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Scratched Sunday

    Kim was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Athletics for unspecified reasons. Kim was penciled in to start at second base and bat leadoff Sunday, per usual, but the Padres released an updated lineup that excludes him. Assuming the 27-year-old is dealing with an injury, the team should provide more information in the near future. Matthew Batten will shift to the keystone while Eguy Rosario starts at third base. Jurickson Profar is now batting atop the order.

  • 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.

  • Padres' Ha-Seong Kim: Runs wild Friday

    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. Kim did his part to get on base, and he also showed no hesitation on the basepaths Friday. The infielder has stolen multiple bases in five games this year, including a pair of three-steal efforts. 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.
