A young ace right-hander of ever victorious Hawks. He dazzels batters with his unique curve and beats them with his fastball which seems to keep picking up speed.

He turned professional as a first-round draft pick, has matured properly, was selected for SAMURAI JAPAN in All-Star Series on November, 2014. He pitched as reliever in Game 4 and in the last game allowing a run with 4 hits over 3 innings(0 earned runs). After pitching in All-Euro Games on March, 2015, he showed nice pitching as a starter in a game against Dominica in the 1st league of Premier 12 with 5 hits and 4 strikeouts over scoreless 4 innings in November the same year. He also pitched as a starter in the third-place game against Mexico, silenced the opponent with 1 hit and 3 strikeout over scoreless 3 innings, and his ERA was 0.00 in 2 games.

He continued to pitch as a starter in SAMURAI JAPAN games, pitched in a game against Chinese Taipei allowing 1 run with 1 hit over 3 innings(0 earned runs) on March, 2016, and in a warm-up game against Mexico allowing 1 run with 5 hits over 4 innings in November the same year. This time he was called in additionally because Shohei Ohtani (Nippon-Ham) withdrew, but there is no question about his abilities. He has got a chance. "Last Samurai" will perform very well in the name of the stage WBC.
