I agree. It's just that given the considerably lower level of play in the KBO, I'm not ready to pencil him in as a starter, or even as necessarily making the club out of spring training. This article says it's pretty much equivalent to high-A ball here, and functions mainly as a feeder into the Japanese leagues, which are somewhere between AAA and the majors here.

So he's the next Mancini? Close enough.

This is a big sumbee. I think they list him at 6'3" and 220 or so. A guy that big who is a contact hitter, could do some damage in OPACY.

I think his being a contact hitter instead of a free swinger w/help him adjust to mlb.

I Googled him looking for images that would show size in context. The first result was some kid or mannequin pulling antlers off his head. Uhh. Never mind.

He's in country one day, and he's running for the Republican nomination?

FanGraphs' Jeff Sullivan thinks Kim will look familiar to O's fans.

Quote:
I've got a player in mind. He's a left-handed-hitting corner outfielder, and the last seven years, he's walked just a bit more than the league average. He's also struck out a third less than average, while running an ISO 18% below the average. He's profiled as a mediocre defender. He doesn't play in Baltimore anymore, but he did for a while, and his name is Nick Markakis.

Markakis, over the seven years, has averaged a win and a half per 600 plate appearances. That's definitely not outstanding. But Kim could reach this level, and that level is worth more than $3.5 million a season. Plus, there's a hint of upside - maybe Kim hits for league-average power. Maybe he plays as a league-average defender. He's young, he's durable, and he's going to play in a hitter-friendly environment. I don't think it's a stretch at all to suggest that Kim could be a perfectly average all-around player, and as unexciting as that might sound, value is value. The Orioles have plenty of holes, and they need to be efficient if they want to address them all. A proven major-league version of Kim might've required $20 - 25 million over the same amount of time. Perhaps even more.
