Biographical Information[edit]

Woo-suk Go has pitched in the Korea Baseball Organization and for the South Korean national team.

Go was the first-round pick of the LG Twins in 2017. He had a 4.50 ERA in 25 relief outings in 2017. In 2018, he was 3-5 with a 5.91 ERA in 56 games. He lived up to his promise in 2019, going 8-2 with 35 saves, a 1.52 ERA, 76 K in 71 innings and only 47 hits allowed. He was one save behind KBO leader Jae-hoon Ha.

He then made the South Korean team that finished second in the 2019 Premier 12. In his debut, he relieved Young-ha Lee in the 7th with a 7-0 lead over Cuba. He retired Yosvani Alarcón and Erisbel Arruebarruena before Roel Santos singled, but César Prieto then grounded out. Ha took over in the 8th. Go's next outing was relieving Ha with a 3-0 deficit in the 6th against Taiwan. He went 1-2-3 against Wei-Chen Wang, Sheng-Wei Wang (K) and Yu-Chieh Kao (K). In the 7th, though, he walked Chin-Lung Hu and went 2-0 on Che-Hsuan Lin, then was relieved by Jong-hyan Won, who let the inherited run score. His final contest was against Japan, replacing Deok-ju Ham in the 7th with a 9-8 deficit. He walked Shuta Tonosaki and Tetsuto Yamada. After a Sosuke Genda sacrifice, his wildness continued as he walked Yoshihiro Maru and hit Kensuke Kondo to force in a run. He recovered to fan Hideto Asamura and retire Masataka Yoshida. Kyeong-chan Moon relieved in the 8th. [1]

His cousin Jae-yoo Yoo has also played in the KBO. [2]
