Tazawa to become first Japanese Amateur straight to MLB

2

"Righthander Junichi Tazawa is expected to forego professional baseball in Japan and attempt to sign with a Major League Baseball team, according to an article posted Thursday on the Japan Times’ web site. Tazawa, 22, was expected to be one of the top players taken during the Japanese baseball amateur draft this fall. However, he has drawn interest from several major league teams, including the Boston Red Sox. Tazawa’s fastball has been clocked in the mid 90s and he also throws a forkball and slider. He recorded four wins in five games as he led the Nippon Oil to their first title in 13 years at the national corporate baseball tournament that ended Tuesday."
