Goes 0-for-4 against Miami, but fortunately his error was corrected with a hit

Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) continues to struggle. Last year’s Gold Glove winner hasn’t been able to break out of his slump at the plate, as he’s been committing more errors and making more mistakes.

Kim went 0-for-4 at shortstop in the No. 7 spot in the lineup against the Miami Marlins at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on Monday. His season batting average dropped from .217 to .212 (193-for-41).

Kim committed an error with two outs in the top of the fourth inning when he flipped a ground ball behind Miami’s Nick Fortes. However, the record was corrected and the error was changed from an error to a hit. Still, it was a disappointing defense.

Kim has committed seven errors this season. He made five in 2021, eight in 2022, his debut year in the major leagues, and seven in the entire season last year. He’s not even halfway through the season yet, and at this pace, he’s on pace to set a new franchise record for most errors in a season.

Kim, the National League Utility Gold Glove winner last season, was highly touted for his defense to start the season, beating out Xander Bogaerts for the starting shortstop job, but he has continued to struggle offensively.

With the bases loaded and one out in the second inning, Kim hit a low changeup outside from Miami starter Jesus Luzzardo and retired the next batter on a fly to right field. In his second at-bat of the fourth inning, he took a three-pitch low slider on a 1-pitch, 1-strike count, but could only manage a fly ball to left field.

Coming back to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning with the score 3-0, Kim hit a changeup up the middle from Luzardo that was hit for a double, and in his final at-bat in the 메이저토토사이트 eighth inning with the score 4-0, he flied out to center field.

Kim will be eligible for free agency at the end of this season. He has a one-year mutual option to extend his contract through 2025, but it seemed unlikely that he would exercise it after his best season last year. However, as the season progressed, it’s doubtful that Kim will be able to decline the option with confidence.

Meanwhile, San Diego right-handed reliever Jeremiah Estrada was the last pitcher out of the bullpen in the top of the ninth, retiring all three batters he faced to extend his streak to 13 consecutive batters. It’s the first time since 1961, when Major League Baseball expanded to a 30-team, 162-game format, that a pitcher has struck out 13 straight batters. San Diego defeated Miami 4-0 to extend its winning streak to three games.
