    Dodgers, Padres to open 2024 regular season with series in South Korea
    • July 12, 2023

    LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers’ history of making international baseball history will add a new chapter in 2024 when they open the regular season with the first MLB regular-season games in South Korea.

    The Dodgers and San Diego Padres will square off on March 20 and 21, 2024 in Seoul, South Korea. Each team will play one game as the home team.

    The series in Korea will be the first in an unprecedented series of international games scheduled by MLB next season. The Houston Astros and Colorado Rockies will play in Mexico City on April 27-28, the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox in the Dominican Republic (March 9-10) and the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies in London (June 8-9).

    For the Dodgers, this is the latest in their history of international trips. They played the Padres in Monterrey, Mexico during the 2018 season – a series that featured a combined no-hitter by Walker Buehler, Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore. In 2014, they opened the season with games against the Arizona Diamondbacks at the Sydney Cricket Grounds in Australia.

    In 2010, the Dodgers played a series of exhibition games against the Chinese Professional Baseball League All-Stars. In 2008, they went to Beijing for exhibition games against the Padres. In 1988, they played exhibition games against the Montreal Expos in Puerto Rico.

    “We can’t wait to play meaningful major-league games for the very first time in front of the outstanding baseball fans of South Korea next season,” Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said in announcing the games. “The Dodgers have a long and proud history of helping to grow the game abroad, highlighted by our trips to Mexico, China and Australia. It’s very exciting to add Korea to the list. I know our players are thrilled to put their talents on display in a country so rich with baseball tradition and talent, including former Dodgers Chan Ho Park, Hee-Seop Choi and Hyun-Jin Ryu.”

    This will be the ninth time in MLB history the season has opened internationally.


    The Dodgers acquired right-hander Tyson Miller from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for cash considerations. Miller was designated for assignment by the Brewers last week.

    In order to add Miller to the 40-man roster, the Dodgers moved right-hander Daniel Hudson to the 60-day injured list, meaning he will be sidelined until at least early September. Hudson returned from ACL surgery to make three appearances this month before injuring the MCL in his other knee.

    Miller, 27, was originally a fourth-round draft pick of the Chicago Cubs out of Cal Baptist. He has made 13 appearances in the big leagues (three starts) over parts of three seasons with the Cubs, Texas Rangers and Brewers, posting a 7.92 ERA. He made seven relief appearances for the Brewers this season with a 5.92 ERA.
