Born in April 11, 1988

Earned the Pacific League ERA title last season. He has earned many wins achieving double-digit wins for 3 years in a row after turning professional, including 14 wins (5 losses) last season. His sharply-dropping sinker is a 'lethal weapon' to contain foreign hitters.

He didn't get a chance to be a national team member including an amateur one, but he has improved year by year after turning professional, and was selected for the Japan national team with manager Kokubo after his performance in the last season was recognized. He made a debut as SAMURAI JAPAN in warm-up games on November 12 last year and pitched in a game against the Netherlands with 6 hits and 3 runs over 4 innings. He got a perfect inning in the 1st, but he gave up 3 runs hitting the first batter with a pitch and giving up 2 RBI hits in the 2nd. But he got scoreless innings in the 3rd and 4th, finishing in general with a passing grade as a starter. When he did pitching practice, managing people praised the quality of his ball and its sharpness and chose him as a WBC member.

Manager Kokubo mentioned his name as "one of my four-starting-pitcher idea" and expects a lot from him in WBC. He is in good shape doing his tune-up in this spring camp. There is an idea that he will be used as a starter in the first game against Cuba. The role he plays is big.
