San Diego Padres hitters who carried the team in April: Ha-seong Kim
Subbing in for Fernando Tatis Jr. is no easy feat, but Ha-Seong Kim rose to the challenge in April, hitting 271/.364/.563 with a .926 OPS. Over 16 games, he collected 13 hits, including three doubles and a trio of home runs. He also scored 13 times and drove in 10 runs.
Kim’s three homers also tie Hosmer for third-most on the team.
With Tatis out until at least the first week of June, Kim will need to keep it up.
