#Staturday: Na Na NaNaNa, Good Bye Kim!

Happy Staturday Birdland! It was a so-so week of baseball and it ended Friday night on a sour note. This week’s stats are a tribute to Hyun-Soo Kim.

As you may remember, Kim started 2016 in a fury:

Hyun Soo Kim recorded 42 hits in his first 38 games, the 5th most in Orioles’ history.

Kim also recorded 14 multi-hit games in his first 43 games, tied for 4th most in Orioles’ history.

Hyun Soo Kim ended up having a hell of 2016, outperforming all expectations:

Kim finished 2016 with a .302 batting average and a .382 on-base percentage, both a team high for batters in 50+ games.

Kim is only the 4th rookie in Orioles’ history to finish with a .300+ batting average (min 90 games played).

While we were never in awe of Kim’s fielding ability, he held his own:

Hyun Soo Kim has yet to commit an error in his 133 games in the outfield.

Assuming Kim doesn’t return to Baltimore, here’s how he stacks up on the Orioles’ hit leaderboard:

Kim will finish with 121 hits as an Oriole, the 162nd most in Os history.

It’s been a good run Kim, best of luck in Philadelphia. For more stats like these, follow @BirdlandStats on Twitter.

    Yeah, that’s right, get rid of another good hitter, just like you always do. Get rid of Jimenez for a decent pitcher!
