Kim Ha-seong Skip the national team camp and join Japan? no big deal
San Diego Padres Kim Ha-seong is unlikely to participate in the WBC team training.
On the 22nd (Korean time), the US”The Athletic’ said, “San Diego has confirmed the mandatory call-up date for the spring camp and has delivered it to the players participating in the WBC. San Diego’s fielders participating in the WBC will be in Arizona, USA until February 16th. He has to join the team spring camp held at the State Peoria Sports Complex.슬롯사이트 He can go to the national team after digesting team training until early March.”
In addition to Ha-seong Kim, San Diego has many players who represent their home country in the WBC. Manny Machado, Juan Soto, Nelson Cruz, Luis Garcia (Dominican Republic), Zander Bogatz (Netherlands), Darvish Yu (Japan), and Nabal Krismat (Colombia) each compete for the WBC as national representatives.
In terms of a big win, the club can’t even prevent the selection of the WBC, but there is no choice but to worry about preparing for the regular season. There are few opportunities to train together in spring camp and play in practice games.
So Ha-seong Kim is unlikely to join the WBC team’s Arizona camp. Coach Lee Kang-cheol and other WBC national team players will train at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona from February 14 to 27, return to Korea, complete inspections in Korea, and depart for Japan on March 4.
Since Peoria, where the San Diego camp is set up, and Tucson, where the WBC team trains, are far apart, Ha-sung Kim has to focus more on team training, so joining Kim is realistically difficult. Ha-seong Kim is likely to go straight to Japan after being with the players of his team.
At the camp, there is an advantage of being able to work hand-to-hand with the national team players. In particular, it is necessary to match the keystone combination with second baseman Tommy Edman (St. Louis). But it doesn’t seem to be a big problem. As a top-class player, it does not take a long time to get your feet together as long as you are in a physical condition that allows you to fight right away.
