‘Kim Ha-Sung’s fellow 17-year-old monster’ Salas blasts home run in pro debut

‘Salas, the monster, finally broke out!’

Ethan Salas, 17, a top prospect for Major League Baseball’s San Diego Padres, has hit his first professional home run.

Salas, who plays for San Diego’s Single-A Lake Elsinore Storm, arched the ball over the fence against Fresno on July 7 at Chukchansi Stadium in Fresno, California, USA. He hit a two-run shot in the seventh inning as Elginore took a 2-1 lead. It was his first home run in a week since making his debut on May 31.

The blast broke up a slump at the plate. After going 5-for-4 with three walks in his first two games, he was 1-for-14 since then. He turned that around with his first home run of the season, his first RBI of the season, and a .300 batting average for the 스포츠토토 season. Despite Salas’ home run, Elginore lost the game 5-6.

The Venezuelan-born Salas just turned 17 years old. That’s about four years younger than the average age of players currently playing in the California League (Single-A). He signed a $5.6 million (approx. KRW 73 million) contract with San Diego in the international draft earlier this year and has been making waves for making his professional debut at the age of 16.
