It’s an incredible picture even when you open your eyes. From the opening game of MLB, a 2-2 match between Korea and Japan will be held.

The San Diego Padres said in a press release on the 4th (Korea time), “We signed a two-year contract with right-handed bullpen pitcher Ko Woo-suk that includes mutual options,” adding, “The contract was announced by A. J. Preller himself.”

The total amount of San Diego’s contract has not been announced, but according to Joel Sherman, a reporter for the U.S. local media “New York Post,” Ko Woo-suk will receive a two-year guarantee of $4.5 million. This is a contract clause that will receive $1.75 million for the 2024 season and $2.25 million for the 2025 season. In addition, if the options are filled for two years, Ko will receive $3 million for the 2026 season by extending his contract period by one more year under mutual agreement.

Adding various bonuses, including the number of games played, performance, and finishing positions, will bring the total number of payouts to 2.4 million U.S. dollars over three years, and if all of them are collected, the total number of payouts will be 9.4 million dollars (12.3 billion won). However, if the mutual option is not implemented two years later, a buyout of 500,000 dollars will be given.

The San Diego club also welcomed Ko. Immediately after signing the contract, he posted a composite photo of Ko wearing a San Diego uniform, and posted a video of Ko’s performance in the KBO League. He also sent a message on his official SNS, saying, “Ko Woo-suk, welcome to San Diego.”

First of all, Ko’s primary goal is to take the final position. Ko will compete with Japanese pitchers Yuki Matsui and Robert Suarez for the closing position this season.

Matsui made 236 saves in 10 seasons in the Japanese professional baseball league. He was the youngest player to achieve 200 saves in the 2023 season. In addition, Robert Suarez posted an ERA of 4.23 with four wins, three losses and eight holds in 26 games in the 2023 season. However, he only has one save in the 2022 season.

Ko Woo-seok graduated from Chungam High School and joined LG in the first round of the 2017 rookie draft. The KBO League record has been reborn as a closing pitcher representing the league with 19 wins, 26 losses, 139 saves and a 3.18 ERA in 354 games. 랭크카지노

In the 2022 season, Ko earned 1.48 ERA and 42 saves to win the title of “Save King.” However, he has been somewhat sluggish this season due to minor injuries. Ko played for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) national team in March but failed to play in any games due to neck injury during a practice game. Since then, he entered the regular league due to shoulder and back injuries, which left him with three wins, eight losses, 15 saves and an ERA of 3.68 in 44 games this season, but he does not change as a pitcher who can post more than 40 saves at any time.
