Ha-sung Kim San Diego, MLB Power Ranking 3rd ahead of the opening

Ha-seong Kim (28)’s team, the San Diego Padres, was evaluated as having the third highest power in the major leagues for the new season ahead of the opening.

On the 28th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, selected and announced the power ranking ahead of the opening of the 2023 season.

San Diego was ranked third out of 30 teams. After recording 89 wins (73 losses) in the regular season last year, San Diego is a team that won the National League Wild Card Game and Division Series and advanced to the Championship Series.

MLB.com said, “San Diego grabbed Zander Bogatz, one of the best free agents of the year, and signed an 11-year contract extension with Manny Machado.” there is,” he said.

“San Diego has taken the baseball world by storm over the past few years with their offensive moves, and fans are reaping the benefits,” he added.

Kim Ha-seong, who filled the gap left by Tatis Jr. last year as the starting shortstop in San Diego, is expected to give up the shortstop position to Bogarts this season and play mainly as a second baseman.

Last year’s World Series winner, the Houston Astros, ranked first in the power rankings.

Houston sent away Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander (New York Mets) as a free agent last year, but strengthened its offense by recruiting first baseman Jose Abreu, who won the MVP in 2020. In particular, it is predicted that the fact that the competitiveness of the American League West, which Houston belongs to, is somewhat inferior, will also be an advantage for Houston.

The Atlanta Braves came in second. Atlanta lost starting shortstop Dansby Swanson, but acquired All-Star catcher Sean Murphy. Above all, it is analyzed that the fact that Ronald Acuña Jr., who is considered a potential MVP candidate, is playing a full season is a big plus for Atlanta. Atlanta seeks to win the National League East for the sixth year in a row, competing against the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies.

After that, the Los Angeles Dodgers ranked fourth and the New York Mets ranked fifth. In particular, the Mets poured astronomical money into the offseason, but veteran injury issues such as bullpen pitcher Edwin Diaz, who played for the Puerto Rico national team in the World Baseball Classic (WBC), were injured, are considered a risk. 온라인카지노

The Toronto Blue Jays, where Ryu Hyun-jin (36) is scheduled to return in the second half of the year, finished 7th behind Aaron Judge’s New York Yankees.

Last year’s World Series runner-up, Philadelphia, ranked 8th, while Shohei Ohtani’s team, the Los Angeles Angels, ranked 17th.

The Pittsburgh Pirates, which Ji-man Choi (32) and Bae Ji-hwan (24) belonged to, stayed at 26th, and the Oakland Athletics were ranked at the bottom, 30th.
