Today’s player is the Texas Rangers’ affiliate infielder, Yoshi Tsutsugo.
■The KAISPO's baseball analyst comments
“In 2019, Tsutsugo signed with the Tampa Bay Rays of MLB. He played three seasons with the Rays, the Dodgers, and the Pirates. Tsutsugo signed with the Rangers to a minor league contract this January. He has struggled to succeed in the MLB consistently, batting just .197 with 18 home runs and 75 RBI in 640 plate appearances. His strength is a slugging power. But it could be better for him to make good contact to enhance the reliability of his batting and raise his batting average until getting the hang of it. I hope he can make his skills blossom.”
Yoshi Tsutsugo is a professional baseball player from Japan. He was born on November 26, 1991, in Hashimoto, Wakayama, Japan.
