“San Diego considers moving Ha-Sung Kim to full-time shortstop instead of Bogart” (San Diego Union-Tribune)…Bogart denies “I’m realistic, but it’s too early”


The San Diego Padres are reportedly considering making Ha Sung Kim their full-time shortstop next year.

“The Padres are considering moving Ha-Sung Kim to full-time shortstop in place of Xander Bogaerts,” the San Diego Union-Tribune reported on Tuesday.

The Padres reportedly pushed hard for Bogaerts to play first base this offseason, but he stubbornly refused.

As a result, the Padres sent Ha-Sung Kim, a 2022 shortstop, to second base and Jake Cronenwirth, a second baseman, to first base.

However, only Ha-Sung Kim came through, while Bogaerts and Cronenwirth failed to deliver.

San Diego eventually decided to return Ha-Sung Kim to shortstop and Cronenwirth to second base, leaving Bogaerts at first base as he was originally intended.온라인카지노

The problem is Bogaerts. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Bogaerts said, “Center field, shortstop, second base, that’s the triangle. When you start going to the corners, you’re closer to the bench. I don’t want to go too fast (first).”

He’s not going to hold onto the shortstop spot forever, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to give it up too soon.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that San Diego “has already discussed internally moving Bogart to the right side of the infield, and those discussions will continue. The move could be delayed if Manny Machado is limited to the designated hitter role early in the season after elbow surgery and Ha Sung Kim starts the season at third base.”

“Ha Sung Kim is under team control for another season and is clearly San Diego’s best defensive shortstop. Cronenwirth is considered a better fit at second base. If there is a move, Bogaerts would prefer second base. San Diego needs to convince Bogaerts that first base is where he belongs.”
