Too bad Kim Ha-sung failed to win the GG-SS award together. “Get Bellinger.”
Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) became the first Korean to win a Major League Baseball Gold Glove, but he didn’t win a Silver Slugger.
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, announced the winners of the Silver Sluggers in both leagues on Tuesday (ET). The Silver Slugger is an award for hitting.
Previously, Kim was a finalist for both the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards. He went on to win the National League Gold Glove for utility.굿모닝토토 주소
He is the first Asian player to win a Gold Glove since Ichiro Suzuki. The first Korean player to do so. There was also a lot of interest in whether or not Kim would win a Silver Slugger Award.
However, in the utility category, the resurgent Cody Bellinger won the award. As a result, Kim had to settle for the Silver Slugger award.
In 152 games this season, Kim hit .260 with 17 home runs, 60 RBIs, 84 runs scored, 140 hits, a .351 slugging percentage and a .749 OPS.
Although his numbers dipped late in the season due to health issues, he was still able to produce above All-Star numbers at one point in August, hitting .287 with a .382 OPS and .841 slugging percentage.
Bellinger, the reigning National League Utility Player of the Year, bounced back this season with a .307 batting average, 26 home runs, 97 RBIs, and a .356 OPS of 0.881 in 130 games.
Meanwhile, Gunner Henderson, the favorite for American League Rookie of the Year, was the only rookie to earn a Silver Slugger. American League Utility Player.
In what was expected to be the most competitive award, Matt Olson edged out Freddie Freeman for the National League First Baseman award.
