Kim joins a loaded Padres team after a successful career in the KBO. He had a particularly strong 2020 season, slashing .306/.397/.523 with 30 home runs and 23 steals. Although he split time between shortstop and third base in the KBO, he'll man second for the Padres, which is better for his fantasy value given the relative lack of strength of the position. Kim is younger than most hitters coming over from the KBO - only 25 - and he has the speed and power to reach double digits in steals and homers pretty easily. But he's more of a 15-15 type of player, rather than the potential 30-25 he was last year, and he'll likely bat near the bottom of the order, limiting his plate appearance and runs and RBI opportunities. Draft him as a middle infield option, but with upside.

Ha-Seong Kim officially signs with Padres for four years and $28 million

The Padres officially signed former KBO infielder Ha-Seong Kim to a four-year, $28 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Incentives could push the total value up to $32 million. This past season Kim hit .307 with 30 homers and 23 stolen bases for the Kiwoom Heroes. It's currently unclear where he'll play defensively, but one would figure that he slots in as the Padres' everyday second baseman with Jake Cronenworth settling serving more as a super-utility player. Kim has the skillset to be fantasy relevant if he gets enough playing time.
