2023 Player Outlook
The lead-off man continues to be a solid and versatile option for the Padres. While he has eligibility at 3B and SS, Kim will spend the majority of his time at 2B this year which should only add to his value. From a production standpoint, we can expect between 10 and 15 home runs and stolen bases from Kim along with a batting average in the .250/.260 range. If Kim spends the entire season batting lead-off, he should expand on his 58 runs scored from last year.
