[“MLB challenger Kim Hye-sung lacks power, but is worth paying attention to” US media]

“Possesses speed and contact ability Capable of playing multiple positions.”

Regarding Kim Hye-seong (25, Kiwoom Heroes), who declared his challenge for the Major League Baseball (MLB), a local American media outlet said, “Although she lacks power, she can attract attention as a second baseman with speed and contact ability.”

Trade Rumors, which mainly covers MLB transfer news, reported on the 17th (local time) the news of Kim Hye-sung's challenge to the big league.

The day before, Kim Hye-sung’s team, Kiwoom, announced, “We have decided to accept Kim Hye-sung’s intention to challenge MLB.” After receiving permission from the club, Kim Hye-seong will knock on the MLB door through the posting system (private competitive bidding) after the 2024 season.

Trade Rumors said of Kim Hye-sung, “He does not have as much power as other KBO League players aiming to advance to MLB. However, over the past three seasons, he has consistently lowered his strikeout rate, improved his walk rate, and posted a batting average above .300.”

Kim Hye-seong, who had 97 strikeouts in 2021, lowered it to 83 strikeouts in 2022. He had 77 strikeouts last year.

The media also said, “Kim Hye-seong has only hit 14 home runs since 2021, but she has hit 67 doubles and 16 triples. He added, “He stole bases 119 times and succeeded in 105 of them, for a success rate of 88.3%.”

Ahead of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC), it was pointed out that Kim Hye-seong was ranked 9th as a prospect to watch.

He said, “The lack of power may limit Kim Hye-sung’s appeal in the MLB market, but at least he is a left-handed hitter who can play multiple positions and show value at the plate.” He added, “Next winter, he will be a left-handed hitter with speed and contact ability.” “He could attract attention as a second baseman,” he said.

He continued, “Kim Hye-sung can be a cheap alternative to players such as Gleyber Torres (New York Yankees), Jose Altuve (Houston Astros), and Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres), who may become free agents (FA) after this season.” He added, “Kim Hye-sung’s performance is worth noting in the KBO League in the 2024 season.”
