Kim, who pitched four games for South Korea in the World
Baseball Classic, pitched two innings Tuesday, then batted in the

The 27-year-old Kim was 5-12 last year for Colorado with a 4.86
ERA, moving from closer to the rotation. He was 1-0 in the WBC,

Among the candidates to replace Kim in the rotation is Zach Day,
who allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings Tuesday. Josh
Fogg and Sun-Woo Kim also are competing for a starting slot.
Abraham Nunez hit a two-run homer in the second off Day.
Jamey Wright, slated to be San Francisco's fifth starter, gave
up two runs -- the first off him in spring training this year -- and
seven hits in four innings.
