Ha-Seong Kim entered Saturday's game as a replacement for Fernando Tatis Jr. (shoulder) and wound up hitting a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning.
The 25-year-old has yet to light it up offensively in his first season in the majors. However, he could be in line for more playing time if Tatis' shoulder requires an IL stint. Kim is batting .213 with four homers and five steals here in mid-June.
Ha-Seong Kim is in Thursday's lineup against the Mets.
Kim left Wednesday's game after colliding with Tommy Pham in the field. He's playing second base tonight and it sounds as if he's good to go moving forward.
Following a collision with teammate Tommy Pham, Ha-Seong Kim was substituted for by Jorge Mateo. Kim was able to get the ball back in after colliding with Pham, but was unable to walk off the field under his own power.
Despite being called off by his teammate, Kim still proceeded to go after the shallow fly ball resulting in the collision. Fantasy managers should get a better idea of Kim's status following the game when concussion test results are released.
Ha-Seong Kim went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and two strikeouts in the Padres' loss to the Astros on Sunday.
Kim launched a home run off Andre Scrubb in the 9th inning on Sunday. It was Kim's third home run on the season. Kim is still hitting below .200 on the year and will now lose a significant amount of playing time with Manny Machado returning from injury. Because of those drawbacks, he still offers limited fantasy upside.
Ha-Seong Kim went 1-for-3 with a single and two runs scored in the Padres' win over the Brewers on Tuesday.
Kim filled in for Manny Machado at third on Tuesday. Depending on how long Machado is sidelined with a shoulder injury, Kim could continue to see some run at the hot corner. Kim has seen a decent amount of starts this year while filling in for Fernando Tatis and Machado, but he doesn't have much to show for it. He's hitting just .209 with two home runs. Kim could still be adjusting to pitching in MLB after coming over from the KBO. Kim's pedigree indicates he could turn things around at some point, but his advanced stats don't indicate that will be happening any time soon. He's a fringe fantasy asset at this point.
