“It’s not unexpected…I think there are things that can get better”

“It’s not unexpected….”

The San Diego Padres announced on Tuesday (Feb. 20) that Go Woo-seok has been removed from the roster for the Major League Baseball season opener.

The news came on the same day as the Seoul Series, making it even more shocking.

Go signed a two-year, $4.5 million contract with San Diego prior to this season. The contract included a mutual option for a 2026 extension.

He didn’t have a great start to the season. In five games, he posted a 12.46 ERA. His dreams of making the Opening Day roster were dashed on Aug. 18, when he allowed two runs on two hits (one home run) with two strikeouts in one inning of work against his hometown LG Twins. His main weapon, a 153-kilometer fastball, was hit hard.

A total of 31 players came to the Seoul Series. 토토사이트 Five players were designated for assignment, including Ko Woo-seok, who will start the new season with San Diego’s Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas.

San Diego will open the season against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Gocheok SkyDome in Seoul on April 20 and 21. It will be the first-ever opening game in South Korea. Go Woo-seok won’t be on the mound.

He will remain in Gocheok to work out.

San Diego manager Mike Schmidt said ahead of the opener, “It was a difficult decision, a tough decision to make. We had to make the decision as we went along. I don’t think he’s had enough buildup yet, but I think he’s going to have a lot to contribute once we get into the season.”

Schildt added: “They told me to keep working hard. The coaching staff, the general manager, they told her that they thought she needed an adjustment period. He’s done a good job so far. But I think there are a lot of things we need to improve. I need to train. If I show good form, I can come back.”

“I heard about it yesterday (Nov. 19). They told me to prepare well,” he said bluntly.

He is disappointed, but not frustrated. “It’s not unexpected and it’s not a challenge, and it’s unfortunate, but I’m going to prepare well and climb well,” he said, 파워볼실시간 adding, “Everything is lacking. I think there are parts that can be improved in the future.”

The most regrettable part was not being able to pitch in the Seoul Series. “It’s a shame,” said Go Woo-seok, looking forward to the next time.
