Igarashi to Pursue MLB

by Patrick Newman (Nov 8, 2009)

Nikkan Sports and others are reporting that Yakult fireballer Ryota Igarashi has decided on pursuing an MLB contract for next season.

Igarashi has hooked on with star agent Arn Tellem for representation, and visited the States in October to take in the American League playoffs. The 30 year-old right gets by with an explosive fastball that reaches the upper-90's and a hard forkball. For more, please see our profile of him, posted last June.
