It sounds as if the Jays aren’t getting Ha-Seong Kim. No word on how much the Padres offered.
I’ll be interested to see how they use him. With Manny Machado at third and Fernando Tatis Jr. at short and Jake Cronenworth at second.
The Padres have reached an agreement with Ha-seong Kim, a source tells The Athletic.— Dennis Lin (@dennistlin) December 28, 2020
The Padres are talking to the Cubs about Yu Darvish, so perhaps Cronenworth will be included in a deal for you. Kim hasn’t played second in several years, but if he can play short he wouldn’t have any troubles with second.
For the Blue Jays, I guess they will go heavier in DJ LeMahieu.
