Boston lost its starting shortstop in the free agent market this winter. This is because Zander Bogarts, who kept Boston’s infield until last year, signed a super-large contract with San Diego for 280 million dollars (approximately 345.8 billion won) in 11 years and took on a new challenge.
In addition, bad news overlapped. Trevor Story, Boston’s starting shortstop candidate, recently underwent right elbow ligament surgery. It is a part that corresponds to Tommy John surgery, but the surgery was performed in a slightly different way. However, it will take some time for the story to return to the ground.
Inside Boston, there is still an option for a punctured shortstop. Boston recently acquired outfielder Adam Duvall, allowing Kike Hernandez to play shortstop. However, it is true that the picture of Hernandez playing shortstop compared to Bogarts and Story has less weight. 메이저놀이터

Finally, ‘MLB.com’ said, “Ha-seong Kim will receive $ 6 million (about 7.4 billion won) this year before receiving $ 7 million (about 8.6 billion won) in 2024.” was,” he added.
In fact, it is unknown how active Boston is in recruiting a shortstop, but in a situation where a shortstop is needed, the number of times Ha-seong Kim is mentioned is increasing. It remains to be seen what kind of change this situation will bring to Kim Ha-seong.
