“Everyone knows that Ronald Acuña Jr. (Atlanta Braves) and Mookie Betts (LA Dodgers) are fiercely competing for the National League (NL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) this season, and Matt Olson (Atlanta) and Freddie Freeman (Dodgers) are chasing after him,” San Diego reporter Kim said in an article.

In fact, according to Baseball Reference, a U.S. baseball statistics website, Kim Ha-sung’s WAR is 5.7, ranking fifth in the league after Betts (8.1), Acuña Jr. (7.6), Olsen (6.4) and Freeman (6.2). He once ranked second in the league after No. 1 in the NL and Shohei Otani (LA Angels). Kim Ha-sung, who has been active in offense and defense with a batting average of 0.268, 17 home runs, and 35 steals, is having his best season with his name at the top of the WAR.
In response, the media introduced, “Kim Ha-sung is one of the few bright things in the Padres, which has been underperforming this season.” Introducing various indicators such as his stolen base, batting average, and on-base percentage (0.358), the media introduced, “Kim Ha-sung has grown into an elite leadoff, ranking second in the NL in the number of pitches per on-base.” In addition, the media said, “There is no player in the team who can keep up with Kim Ha-sung’s defense. “He played a good role wherever he needed the team, such as the second baseman and the third baseman,” he praised.
