Location: Seattle, WA, US
Came over to MLB toward later stages of career. One of most dominant closers in the history of Japanese baseball. Best year was 1997 when he had a 0.90 ERA, 60 IP, 25 hits, 17 walks, 99 K's, 0.70 whip. Had some productive years as closer for championship level team and bullpen in Seattle. Had impact split-finger pitch that was one of best in game when he first got to MLB. CB was a pitch he would try and steal strikes with. FB was a straight 90-94 and was used to set up split. Two time MLB all-star.
