Chan-ho Park, the ‘Korean Express’ who helped Go Woo-seok advance to the big league as an advisor to the San Diego club, watched Go Woo-seok’s bullpen pitching and cheered on his junior who had just taken his first step toward the big league.

In a short interview with APTN, a broadcaster affiliated with the Associated Press, on the 12th, Go Woo-seok said, “It’s only been two days since I came to the United States, so I’m experiencing a bit of jet lag, but I got enough sleep.

I pitched out of the bullpen for the first time, and my condition will only get better in the future.” He said.

He added, “I was a little nervous because everything was new, including the people and the environment,” but added, “I was the first to greet them, others greeted me first, and everyone (people in the club) was really kind to me.

It was nice to receive such a warm welcome.”

Go Woo-seok mentioned the two-game regular league game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that will be held at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 20th and 21st of next month and said, “This is the first major league game to be held in Korea, so we need to pitch more competitively (in exhibition games) to be able to play in that game.”

“It gives me motivation,” he said.

MLB.com predicted that all-purpose infielders Kim Ha-seong and Ko Woo-seok will be on the opening day roster.

Go Woo-seok is likely to start the season as a set-up man rather than a finisher.

Go Woo-seok signed a 2+1 year contract with San Diego for up to $9.4 million.

He is guaranteed $4 million for two years, and depending on his performance, if the club exercises the option, he will sign a one-year extension for $3 million for the third year.

The plus option based on performance is $2.4 million, and if the club does not exercise the option two years later, Go Woo-seok will receive a buyout amount of $500,000 in the form of farewell and become a free agent.
