Remember dice-k???? He was supposed to be the most amazing player and all the hype 50 million just to talk to him and others that have come over from Japan... only ichiro is the one that has lasted and has amounted to his potential... im just saying...
According to reports out of multiple MLB outlets, he wants to play for an AL team and pitch every 5th day while playing in the field the other 4.
I've seen this guy and he's legit, but does it really matter if a slugger can pitch or if a pitcher can rake? If you want him hitting every day, he can't be a pitcher. And if you want him to pitch, he'll only hit every 5th day. 🤔
Most likely coming to the angels I heard he loves california and we are a American League team plus next year we will have a big budget to sign players soo....
He's a monster, hitting for power and throwing flame in pro baseball league.
Check his number in 2016 ：1.86 era 174k in 140IP22HR .332/.416/.588 in 104G
So excited to see him play in MLB.
The Mariners would seem to be a likely destination. They haven't been burning all their international budget on Cuban players, they have a fantastic track record with Japanese players (Ichiro, Kazuhiro Sasaki, Hisashi Iwakuma, Kenji Johjima, and Shigetoshi Hasegawa, among others), Jerry Dipoto is an avid recruiter of NPB talent, and the Mariners are a healthy high-end starter and some better DL luck away from contention.
Hope its the Tigers but it wont.
He can be the future star hitter they need and pitch out of the bullpen. Can kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Why not as the Tigers rarely go into the high level of international spending. So why not give the fans something to watch during a rebuild.

** Player opt out after year 5 OR If he plays under 600 total games in first 5 years then Tigers gain team options for years 6, 7 and 8.

Dodgers, resigning darvish. They will have 3 Japanese pitchers. (Maeda being the third) Yu recently bought a mansion in LA expressed interest in staying. Heard it here first
