Ha-Sung Kim (San Diego Padres) is scary.
Kim stole two bases against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Aug. 8. That’s 15 games in a row. He tied Ichiro Suzuki’s record for the most by an Asian.
Over his last 15 games, Kim has a phenomenal .567 OPS.
His season OPS is 0.384, which ranks eighth in the National League.
Shin-Soo Choo has the highest single-season OPS by a Korean player. He posted a 0.423 OPS in 2013.
While Kim won’t be able to match Shin-Soo’s record, he can still challenge for a 4% OPS.
Kim has also been steadily improving his batting average.
His two hits in five at-bats against the Dodgers gave him a .288 batting average for the season. That ranks ninth in the National League.
In his last 15 games, Kim is batting .442.
At this rate, he could be looking at a triple-double for the season.
Kim is trying to join the “20-20 Club” – players who hit 20 or more home runs and steal 20 or more bases in a season.
He currently has 15 home runs and needs to add five more. He already has 24 stolen bases.
San Diego has 49 games left to play.토토사이트
Fans are eager to see if Kim can achieve a triple-digit batting average, a four-digit slugging percentage, and the 20-20 Club.
