Reporter Kim Hee-jun = Choi Ji-Man will start for the first time since joining the San Diego Padres.
Kim Ha-soo, who was also playing in San Diego, will also be in the starting lineup, making it the second Korean major leaguer to start side by side.
When the Dodgers take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at Petco Park in San Diego, California, on Friday (June 5), Kim will bat first and second and Choi will hit seventh.
It will be only the second time in history that the Korean beasts will start together for the same team.
While playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Choi started alongside Bae Ji-hwan on April 3 against the Cincinnati Reds, marking the first time in history that two Koreans started a major league game together.온라인카지노
Choi and Bae made five starts together in April alone. The rest of the month, the duo was sidelined with injuries.
The second example is Choi Ji-Man, who was traded from Pittsburgh to San Diego on the 2nd of this month to join Kim Ha-Sung.
Kim has been one of the best players on the team this season with his offense and defense. He’s not just a starter, he’s a favorite for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.
If Choi can deliver the long ball that San Diego has been hoping for, he and Kim will likely see a lot of time in the starting lineup.
