Manager Mike Schildt commented on Go Woo-seok’s exclusion from the opening day roster

“Go Woo-seok had a difficult time. It was a tough decision. We had to make a tough decision after watching him start the season at Double-A, where he had 139 career saves and a 12.60 ERA. I didn’t think he was ready yet. The coaching staff thought he would need an adjustment period from spring training, and we talked about that with him beforehand,” said the club.

“I told him to keep working hard. We started the season a little slow. We have to look forward to the next game. He’s been doing well, but I think he has a lot to improve. If he continues to work hard and get to the top of his game, we’ll see him on the field again.”

The Pacific Coast League, where the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas play, is dominated by ride-or-die players. The Texas League, home to the Double-A San Antonio Missions, is less pressured.

President of Baseball Operations A.J. Preller said, 사설 토토사이트 “While Woo-Suk is not making a rehab start, we felt it would be good for him to continue to build up in Double-A.

“From a player’s perspective, the Pacific Coast League can be a tough environment. From a club’s perspective, when you’re evaluating pitchers, the Texas League is a cleaner slate than the Pacific Coast League.”
