I want to introduce Japanese prospects as field players to be a Major Leaguer to you.
Yoshida is a high-average batter. He has hit higher than three hundred in 5 of 7 seasons since his debut. He won a leading hitter twice. His batting is stable.He is not tall as a baseball player. However, he is well-muscled. I expect him to have a good result in MLB. I hope an MLB team
Murakami is a very hopeful player.
He won the rookie of the year, home run king, and MVP. Murakami reached 100 homers and 100 RBIs at the youngest age in NPB history. So, he has a possibility to get the triple crown. His fighting spirit is suited for the Major League.
Yamakawa is a No.1 slugger in the Pacific League.
Yamakawa reached No.100 homer in 321 games at the fastest pace among Japanese players in 2019 in NPB history.
He is achieving No.200 homer with one more homer within the next 17 games, which is at the fastest pace among Japanese players in NPB history. His hitting performance earned the MVP and home run king titles. He is a possible player to achieve the triple crown.
Okamoto is a powerful batter in the Central League. Okamoto hit more than 30 homers for the 4th straight year from 2018 to 2021.
He won two main titles. So, he is also a prospect to win the triple crown.
