28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Hyun Soo Kim was signed to a 2-year, $7 million dollar contract last winter. He had an awful spring training and the Baltimore Orioles wanted to send him to the minors, but he rejected the demotion due to a clause in his contract. The only two options the Orioles had at that point were to keep him on the active 25-man roster or to cut him loose and pay him $7 million bucks over the next two years. They decided to keep him on the roster, and he has rewarded them in 2016. Kim has played in 92 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 91 of 296 (.307 avg, .814 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 6 homers, 22 RBI and 1 stolen base. Kim has played in 17 games so far in September and he is 11 for 42 (.262 avg, .799 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBI. This past Wednesday, Kim came up and hit a pinch hit, 2-run homer in the top of the 9th inning off of Blue Jays’ closer Roberto Osuna, to give the Orioles a huge victory!
