Born in December 5, 1991

After joining the team as a first-round draft pick, the young left-hander has improved steadily and achieved a good result. He showed impressive pitching as reliever in warm-up games in November last year, making it to WBC. He is a valuable left-handed pitcher who can turn the tide in a game.

When in junior high school, he played with Yoshitomo Tsutsugoh (DeNA) in a World Championship tournament. When he was a freshman in Chiben Wakayama high school, he made it to the roster from spring and participated in the Koshien Championships for three seasons in a row from summer. After joining Chunichi as a first-round draft pick, he distinguished himself as reliever and was selected for SAMURAI JAPAN for the first time for warm-up games against The Netherlands and Mexico on Novemember, 2016. He didn't get much attention at first, but when he pitched in the top of the 10th of Game 1 against the Netherlands, he showed nice pitching, getting out of the jam with runners on first and second bases and none out in a tie break game. That led to winning a walk-off in the following bottom of the inning, and he showed a big smile on an interview stage.

His pitching was highly valued and he was selected for WBC members. It is appealing that he is a left-hander. He is not afraid and got nerves and will give a win to Japan again with the attitude on the mound.
