Korean Leftfielder Hyun Soo Kim traded to Philadelphia Phillies

Kim was traded to the Phillies, along with minor-leaguer Garrett Cleavinger and international signing bonus slots, for Jeremy Hellickson and cash considerations Friday, Jon Heyman of reports.

The 29-year-old has shown flashes of productiveness over the past two seasons with the Orioles, but could never really break through for a major role in left field, ultimately being phased out in favor of Trey Mancini. Nonetheless, with Howie Kendrick traded by Philadelphia in a separate move Friday, Kim may get a legitimate shot at an everyday starting role prior to becoming an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The lefty is slashing just .2332/.305/.288 with a -0.4 WAR through 56 games, so he’ll need to show some improvement before becoming fantasy-worthy.
