Bright right-handed pitcher who has evolved with his insatiable spirits for improving his skills. We won title of the best pitcher's earned run average of the oneself second in pitcher's earned run average 2.01 in the last season. He is expected to be one of the main starters in SAMURAI JAPAN.

When he was a sophomore in college, he was selected for a national team for Japan-USA Collegiate Baseball Championship and Asian Baseball Championship. He achieved a good result steadily and made a debut as a member of SAMURAI JAPAN Top Team at Premier 12 in 2015. He pitched for a game against the U.S. in the 1st round(2 runs allowed for 4 innings), and for a game for the third place against Mexico (1 run allowed for 3 innings) both as a starter and expressed regret about the runs allowed of both games. He pitched for 9 innings in 3 games in total with a 4.00 ERA including a send-off game against Puerto Rico which was held right before the real games, which was unsatisfying pitching for him.

But Sugano improved from that point on. He improved his pitching using his humiliating experiences as a leverage, and showed excellent pitching throwing for 3 innings with 1 hit, no runs and 4 strikeouts in a game against Chinese Taipei in March,2016. He doesn't waste time towards his first WBC, trying to learn change-up for the first time. He will go to mound in the world stage with an awareness as an ace pitcher carrying the national flag on his shoulders.
