Players who played in NPB and MLB

Players who played in NPB and MLB
All:

Need your help. I once maintained a list of all players who had played in both major leagues across the Pacific, but I did not keep it up to date the last 3 years.

I've been trying to get it back up to date, and I think I have all the NPB players who subsequently moved to MLB, but not sure I have all the MLB players who moved to NPB.

I have posted the file at my Yahoo Group (registration required) and would appreciate anyone who is willing to review it.

THANKS,
KJOK

It's also available as a tab delimited file here.

Do you want the players coming from AAA during that time period as well?

Do you want the players coming from AAA during that time period as well?

If that's a simple query for you to run, then yes. Once I get the MLB-NPB players list finalized, I will likely start on the AAA/AA-NPB list.....

I realize that this is an old thread, but I just need to add this.

Several foreign players in the NPB went the other way to the MLB in the last three years:

Cedrick Bowers played for Yokohama from 2004-2005 and debuted in MLB in 2008 with the Rockies.
Esmailin Caridad played in 2 games for the Hiroshima Carp in 2007 and debuted in MLB in 2009 with the Cubs.
Likewise, Victor Marte played in 1 game for the Hiroshima Carp in 2008 and debuted in MLB in 2009 with the Royals.
About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
