After the announcement of the contract, San Diego welcomed Ko’s joining, saying on its official SNS, “Welcome to San Diego, Ko Woo-suk!” This is the same as right after Lee Jung-hoo signed with the San Francisco Giants. At the time, San Francisco welcomed Lee’s joining through its SNS account.

Now, Ko Woo-suk is expected to make his Major League debut through the Seoul Series on March 20 after participating in San Diego’s spring training that begins in February. Ko Woo-suk pitched 367 1/3 innings in 353 games during his seven seasons in the Korean professional baseball KBO League, recording 19-26 with 138 saves and six holds and an ERA of 3.19.

His main weapon is a fastball that exceeds the mid-150km range. Using this as an weapon, Ko displayed outstanding performance with 42 saves and an ERA of 1.48 in the last 2022 season. However, Ko also had a relatively sluggish year with a 3.68 ERA last year, just before entering the Major League, which left him disappointed.
