“Jung-hoo, the major leagues are not easy.”
Lee Jung-hoo (Kium) is trying to make it to the major leagues. What would big league senior Kim Ha-seong say to him?
Kim Ha-seong of the San Diego Padres is back. Kim arrived in Korea on Nov. 11 at Incheon International Airport. He arrived at Incheon International Airport on Nov. 11, establishing himself as the team’s new No. 1 hitter for the 2023 season and posting career-highs of 17 home runs and 38 doubles. Kim will be eligible for free agency after next season, and will be preparing for the new season in Korea. For now, he plans to rest his tired body and focus on working out to fill in the gaps he felt this season.
While we’re interested to see how much better Kim will be next season, it’s interesting to imagine him going head-to-head with his close friend Lee Jung-hoo on the major league stage. Lee will be looking to make the big leagues after qualifying for the postseason. His chances of landing a spot on either team seem high. The two played together for four seasons from 2017 to 2020 for the Kiwoom Heroes (including a stint with the former Nexen Heroes), where they were teammates.
Kim thinks Jung-hoo’s chances of success are high. “Actually, I don’t have any advice for Jung-hoo. He’s already a complete hitter. If he sees a lot of pitchers’ pitches in spring training and adapts to them, I think he will have good results 토토사이트.”
However, he did not forget that the major league stage, where the best players in the world are gathered, is not easy. Kim said, “I’m going to tell Jung-hoo enough about what I felt there. The major leagues are not easy. I think I’ll tell him to prepare well,” he added.
For now, Kim’s team, the San Diego Padres, hasn’t been too enthusiastic about Jung-hoo, but you never know. The local media is talking about Lee as a possible candidate for a new team. “We’ve already played together a lot in Korea,” Kim laughed when asked if he ever thought about playing on the same team. “It’s Jung-hoo’s job to choose a team, and I don’t want to put any pressure on him,” he said.
At Kiwoom’s final home game, San Francisco Giants general manager Pete Putilla showed up to see Lee in person. The Giants are in the same National League West division as San Diego. If Lee were to wear a San Francisco uniform, he could face them as often as he eats. “I don’t really care, but I hope he goes to a place where he can do well,” Kim said.
