In the end, it was difficult to participate in 토토사이트 the World Baseball Classic (WBC) finals from the beginning. Go Woo-seok (25, LG) is receiving two weeks of rest and drug treatment due to shoulder muscle inflammation. Ko Woo-seok moved to the rehabilitation group.
On the morning of the 16th, an official from the LG Twins said, “Ko Woo-seok underwent an MRI scan at Neon Orthopedic Surgery (Director Jin-young Park) in Seoul the day before (15th).” It was diagnosed that he needed medical treatment. So, on the 16th, he joined the Icheon Champions Park rehabilitation group.”
Participation in the opening game of the KBO League has also become uncertain. This year’s regular season starts on April 1st. After taking a two-week break, it is expected that it will take some time for him to go through adjustments in the 2nd group and rise to the 1st group.
At this 2023 WBC tournament, the national team suffered the loss of being eliminated in the first round. The national team had to return home after posting a record of 2 wins and 2 losses in the Group B group stage, giving up first and second places to Japan (4 wins) and Australia (3 wins and 1 loss). Following the 2013 competition and the 2017 competition, it is the third consecutive first round elimination.
There are many stories about the cause of the tournament’s elimination. Among them, missing the first game against Australia was the most fatal for Korea. If they had only caught the match against Australia, even if they were defeated by Japan, they could have won a ticket to advance to the second round (quarterfinals) with 3 wins and 1 loss. However, things went wrong when we lost the match against Australia.
Among them, Go Woo-seok’s inability to pitch is also cited as one of the reasons for his unfortunate dropout. Ko Woo-seok pitched in relief in the evaluation match against the Orix Buffaloes in Osaka on the 6th, the next day after entering Japan. Ko Woo-seok, who passed the 7th inning well, went to the mound again in the 8th, but complained of shoulder pain during the pitch. He showed discomfort by swinging his right arm widely, and eventually the Korean bench ordered a pitcher change.
At that time, KBO received a detailed examination at a WBC-designated hospital located in Japan the next day. It didn’t look like a serious injury, but it was a checkup that was definitely pointed out. As a result, it turned out that he had no major abnormalities. At the time, a KBO official explained, “There was no abnormality in the test results. It is simple muscle pain around the shoulder and is recovering quickly.”
