“Now is not the time to rest.”

It is a sweet rest day after playing 24 games in 25 days and 18 consecutive matches, but Kim Ha-seong of the San Diego Padres will not rest comfortably.

Ha-seong Kim said in a meeting with MK Sports after an away game against the Arizona Diamondbacks held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on the 24th (hereinafter Korean time), “I am in a difficult state physically and mentally. Not having a game for a day will help,” he said, expressing his feelings about the rest day.

San Diego had a tough schedule early in the season. Starting with the Atlanta expedition on the 7th, they played 18 consecutive matches.

Ha-seong Kim, who had risen to 0.281 batting average for the season at the time of the Atlanta expedition, suffered a slump afterwards and his batting average dropped to the 10% range.

He said, “It was okay in the beginning, but the hitting got worse. The results are not good, and I have a lot of thoughts at the plate,” he confessed that he was in a mentally difficult state. “It’s still early in the season, so I have to rest well and prepare well,” he said, promising to do his best.

On this day, the Padres team will move to Chicago, the next destination, and take a day off in Chicago.

Athletes with strict routines, such as starting pitchers, may train even on rest days, but most players usually take a full break on rest days when there is no game.

Ha-seong Kim’s plan is different. He plans to meet with coach Choi Won-je, who is taking care of his batting, in Chicago and conduct personal training. 먹튀검증

“Now is not the time to rest,” he said, adding, “There are a lot of broken parts at bat. I think I will practice for that part,” he said, adding that he would use the break day as a time to reorganize the broken blow.

Rest days are necessary not only for Ha-Sung Kim, but for the Padres as well. Because everyone is tired. Coach Bob Melvin confessed the difficulties of the early schedule, saying, “I feel like I’ve already played 50 games.”

“It was like playing a night game in Atlanta and arriving in New York at 4:00 in the morning. From then on, he continued to play without rest and was hectic,” he emphasized, emphasizing that he had a difficult schedule.
