Born in June 2, 1985

Trusted left-handed reliever who pitched for 50 games for 9 consecutive years after turning professional. He achieved 200 holds in his career last season which was the first time in the Pacific League. He is a key person to changing pitchers to win in the last part of a game.

When he was a Kansai Gakuin university student, he played in 2006 Intercontinental Cup and was selected for a national team of Beijing 2007 pre-Olympics. After turning professional, he kept achieving a good result and didn't wear a national team uniform for a while, but was selected for the first time for SAMURAI JAPAN Top Team in warm-up games against the Netherlands and Mexico last November because manager Kokubo wanted to add a reliever and a left-handed pitcher after Premier 12. He pitched as a fourth pitcher in Game 2 against Mexico and got a perfect inning with 14 pitches. In the following game against the Netherlands, he showed his abilities against 2 batters, giving up no hits.

His name was listed among WBC members in the early announcement, which proves that he was highly trusted. He energetically pitched in the bull pen from the first day in spring training. He will get in good condtion early and ready for the tournament.
