San Diego’s Kim takes 57th game off to recharge his batteries

After working tirelessly to help his team win, San Diego Padres pitcher Ha-Sung Kim (27) is taking a break.He missed the Padres’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA, on March 13.It was the first time he hadn’t played since July 9 against the New York Mets in the team’s 57th game.It was a rest day. “San Diego manager Bob Melvin informed Kim the day before that he was going to give him a day off,” said the San Diego Union-Tribune, a local newspaper, “which is not a bad decision, as Kim has been showing signs of fatigue lately.”As described by the media, Kim has been struggling lately.After batting .337 in July and .273 in August, he has struggled since September, batting .195 with a .267 on-base percentage and .195 slugging percentage in 10 games.The Dodgers were starting right-hander Lance Lynn, and Kim, who hits better against lefties than righties, cheered on his teammates from the dugout.Without Kim, San Diego was outscored 2-11 by the 스포츠토토존 Dodgers.Jurickson Profar, batting first in place of Kim, went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.
