He is the best five tool player among active players, achieving for the first time in history a .300 batting average, 30 home runs, 30 stolen bases for two years in a row. He is still 24 growing as a player. He will do great and evolve on the world stage.

He played in Climax Series in his first year after graduating from high school, renewed a single-season hits record of Japanese right-handed hitters with . 324 batting average, 29 home runs, 89 RBIs and 15 stolen bases in 2014, his fourth season, and with . 329 batting average, 38 home runs, 100 RBIs and 34 stolen bases in 2015, and with . 304 batting average, 38 home runs, 102 RBIs and 30 stolen bases in 2016, he achieved more than .300 batting average, 30 home runs, 30 stolen bases for two years in a row. He was listed in SAMURAI JAPAN for the first time for All-Star Series on November, 2014, going 3 for 13 with . 230 batting average, but he played 8 games in Premier 12 in 2015, going 10 for 26 with . 308 batting average, 2 homers and 1 stolen base.

He didn't do well again in games against Mexico and the Netherlands on November, 2016, but his amazing swing speed hasn't changed. He practiced with the WBC balls in spring training this year and prepared. He is very likely to play "second baseman" or "bat DH" in this tournament. He will go at the opponent, whatever role he plays and wherever he bats in the lineup.
