LG Twins allow Go Woo-seok to play in the major leagues.
The LG Twins announced on Wednesday that they will allow Go Woo-seok to play in the U.S. Major League Baseball.
Go, who is one year away from becoming a free agent, decided to challenge the major leagues after the team won the Korean Series last season. He knocked on the door to the American stage through a post.
However, no concrete news was received locally. The St. Louis Cardinals were linked to him early in the posting period, but that quickly faded. It looked like Goh’s big league dreams were coming to an end.
But then came the twist. Three days before the end of the one-month posting period. News broke from the United States that Go Woo-seok was close to signing with Kim Ha-sung’s team, the San Diego Padres.
Unsurprisingly, LG received the offer from Go Woo-seok’s camp. LG CEO Cha Myung-seok said, “We’ve heard the terms, we’ve reported to the top, and we’re waiting for a decision.”
When LG allowed Ko Woo-seok to post, it did so with conditions.
The club said they would only allow him to stay if they could get compensation that would satisfy them. They couldn’t give away their closer for nothing. Of course, we knew he wanted to come to the U.S., so we were willing to help him get there if we could get an acceptable offer.
However, the fact that they were unable to make a decision immediately after hearing the offer suggests that the amount of money was not a priority for LG. However, 토토사이트 we can’t rule out a reverse scenario where the group and the club’s higher-ups appreciate the player’s spirit and decide to let him go.
All contracts had to be finalized by 7 a.m. KST on April 4. LG also had to make a quick decision, and after much deliberation, they triumphantly granted him a spot in the major leagues.
We don’t know the details of the contract yet. Now that LG has given the green light, detailed negotiations will take place locally between Ko’s agent and San Diego to finalize the deal. LG could only provide a rough total amount.
Go Woo-seok will be traveling to the U.S. immediately for the medical test.
