If I’d kept running, I wouldn’t have hit a home run…Kim Ha-Sung, may your pain be overcome by the phone.

Unexplained Stomach Pain Could Be Kim’s Call-Up Opportunity

San Diego Padres pitcher Ha-seong Kim missed his second straight game. He did not play against the Colorado Rockies at Petco Park on April 19 (KST). He was scheduled to start at first base against the Oakland Athletics a day earlier, but he suddenly complained of abdominal pain before the game.

Worries are growing. Kim is eager to play, and it’s hard to imagine him missing two games in a row if he’s not feeling well. However, according to local reports and comments from Bob Melvin, it’s not an appendicitis or other muscle injury that requires immediate surgery. We can cautiously assume stress gastritis, enteritis, etc.

It’s unfortunate, but the good news is that it doesn’t appear to be a major injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season. If he were a non-factor in San Diego, I wouldn’t mind seeing him go early, but he’s taking on the challenge of a lifetime this season. He’s trying to join the 20-homer, 20-double club.

Kim is just three home runs away from joining the 20-20 club. He already has 36 stolen bases. While 20-20 would make him the second Korean major leaguer after Choo Shin-soo, 20-30 and 20-40 would make him the first. It would also be a first for an Asian infielder.

Of course, achieving 20-20 is not a guaranteed success 온라인바카라. But as a professional athlete, records last a lifetime, and a home run or two can make all the difference in the world. This is the world of professional baseball, where a 2-for-9 hitter is treated differently than a 3-for-9 hitter.

Kim hasn’t hit a home run since his 17th on May 22. This is due to a combination of factors, including a long season and constant starts at first base. It’s a bit of a crapshoot, but if Kim had continued to play without the abdominal pain, home runs might not have been as easy to come by. His bat speed was noticeably reduced.

However, if it’s not a major injury, it could be a call-up if it’s a soreness that he can recover from quickly. San Diego has 11 games left, including a series against Colorado on the 20th. If the freshly rested Kim can stay focused for the next 10 games or so, he could have a better chance of coming up with a big hit. Let’s hope it’s not a serious injury.
