“Goh Woo-seok, I think he’s going to ML”

After winning the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years, the LG Twins will be without closer Ko Woo-seok next year.

The chances of Ko Woo-seok making it to the big leagues are slowly increasing. “I think Go Woo-seok will go to the major leagues,” an LG official said.

After LG won the Korean Series, Go received a request for a background check from the Major League Baseball office. He’ll be eligible for free agency next year, and he’s always wanted to play in the major leagues, but when the MLB office requested a background check, he was able to get his big league chance with Post.

He asked LG to allow him to post, and LG granted him permission. Go said, “I will go to the major leagues if I am paid a certain amount of money. I won’t go for a cheap price,” he said.

The St. Louis Cardinals are a team that Go Woo-seok is strongly linked to.

The team is familiar to Korean fans, having played for Oh Seung-hwan and Kim Kwang-hyun in the past, 카지노사이트킴 and St. Louis has an affinity for Korean pitchers.

The Reds plan to add at least two bullpen arms. The Reds have Ryan Helmsley, 29, as their closer. Last year, he was 9-1 with a 1.25 ERA in 54 games with seven saves, and this year, he is 3-4 with a 2.45 ERA in 33 games with 14 saves.

The Reds lack a setup man and a closer in front of Hellesley. St. Louis is interested in free agent bullpen arm Phil Meyton, 30. Mayton was 4-3 with a 3.00 ERA in 68 games (66 innings) for Houston this year. Jordan Hicks, who pitched for St. Louis this season and is a free agent after being dealt to Toronto in a July trade, has also been mentioned as a candidate.

Derek Gould of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported during the Winter Meetings that “Gowseok is a reliever the Reds have discussed with Yuki Matsui in international free agency. St. Louis met with the agent of Ko Woo-seok and Japanese pitcher Yuki Matsui.”

“The LG Twins made Ko Woo-seok available to MLB teams through their posting system,” the U.S. outlet said. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a 3.68 ERA in 44 innings last season. He struck out 31.1 percent of batters, but walked 11.8 percent of batters.”

“He has until Jan. 3 of next year to decide whether to sign with a major league club or remain in South Korea. He’s not expected to get the same kind of contract as Meyton or Matsui. And it will certainly be less than what it would cost to bring back Hicks.”

Matsui is Japan’s leading closer, having posted a sub-1.00 ERA over the last three years.

In 59 games (57 1/3 innings) this season, he is 2-3 with a 1.57 ERA, eight wins, eight losses, 39 saves. In 501 career games (659⅔ innings), he has a 25-46 record, 76 saves, 236 relief appearances, and a 2.40 ERA.

There have been several major league bullpen signings so far. Right-hander Luis Garcia, 36, signed a one-year, $4.25 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels. Garcia appeared in 61 games (59.2 innings) for San Diego this year, going 2-3 with a 4.07 ERA in 10 appearances.

Veteran Kirby Yates, 36, signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with Texas. After missing more than a year following elbow surgery in 2021, Yates posted a 5.14 ERA in nine games last year and bounced back with a 7-2 record, five saves and a 3.28 ERA in 61 appearances (60⅓ innings) for Atlanta this year.

Right-hander Adam Cimber, who pitched for Toronto this year, went 2-2 with a 7.40 ERA in 22 games (20.2 innings). He recently signed a one-year, $1.65 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, while Kim Kwang-hyun signed a two-year, $8 million deal with St. Louis in 2020. 스포츠토토사이트 Oh Seung-hwan, who made it to the major leagues after a breakout season in Nippon Professional Baseball, signed for two years and $11 million in 2016.

If Go Woo-seok is offered an average contract of around $3 million, he will likely leave for the majors. LG President Cha Myung-seok believes that such an offer would be enough to get him to the big leagues.
