Scouting Report
Owns a wealth of experience overseas as a closer, which should bode well for his work in Major League Baseball. As is the case with most Japanese pitchers, he is deceptive and hard to read on the mound. Does not have ideal size and strength, so he could stand to add more weight to maximize his stamina at the highest level. Also, he needs to adjust to North American hitters' tendencies for good results.
Long Range Potential: Quality, savvy veteran reliever.
