“They told me that what is more important than appointing an agent is to show off good skills by the players themselves.”
San Diego Cardinals Kim Ha-seong introduced the advice he gave to Lee Jung-hoo.
Kim Ha-seong met reporters at Incheon International Airport prior to departure on the 27th and said, “(Lee) Jung-hoo asked me a lot of questions before signing an agent contract, but there was nothing I could say.” I will be able to,” he cheered.
Lee Jung-hoo announced that he would advance to the major leagues in the US after this season, and his team Kiwoom also decided to support it. Lee Jung-hoo has appointed Scott Boras as his agent and is preparing to enter the US market.
Ha-seong Kim said, “I prepared hard this winter,” before leaving the country, and promised, “I will do my best to perform at my best in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) as well as within the team.” 스포츠토토
Kim Ha-seong plans to join the San Diego club’s spring camp held at the Peoria Sports Complex in Arizona after concentrating on technical training with Choi Won-jae’s personal coach in Los Angeles, California. He will not be able to participate in the WBC national team training in Tucson, Arizona, USA. Kim Ha-seong said, “I can’t participate in the WBC national team training in the United States, but I don’t have a big worry because I got along with my teammates when I played in the KBO league.”
Kim Ha-seong returns to Korea on March 1st and participates in the WBC Korean national team jet lag adaptation and recovery training held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on March 2nd and 3rd.
Kim Ha-seong said, “If we both get a lot of outcounts, it will be of great help to the pitchers,” and said, “Because Edmon is such a good player. I’m not worried about the defensive breathing problem at all.”
Ha-seong Kim, who defended the San Diego infield reliably last season, but his position in the upcoming season is unstable. San Diego recruited top-notch shortstop Sander Bohartz, and star Fernando Tatis Jr., who has been controversial over banned substances, is also returning. Ha-seong Kim emphasized, “Any team must compete internally,” and “I have always competed since entering the major leagues.” He continued, “Director AJ Preller said that the frequency of second baseman’s appearances would increase in the new season, and I also agreed.”
In this situation, local media also predicted that Kim Ha-seong would be used as a trade card. In response, Kim Ha-seong introduced, “I think San Diego has the best infield power among the 30 MBL teams.”
