Height: 193cm, weight: 95kg, right-handed thrower, left-handed hitter. In 2012, he joined the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters as the first draft pick. He gained attention by attempting to play a “dual-wielding” game, serving as both a pitcher and a batter.
In 2016, he contributed to the Fighters becoming the best in Japan with his performances in both pitching and hitting, and was also the Pacific League MVP.
In 2018, he joined the Los Angeles Angels. Awarded American League Rookie of the Year.
In 2021, he achieved 46 home runs as a batter and 9 wins as a pitcher, and was awarded the AL MVP award.
In 2023, he had a historic season, not only achieving double-digit wins and double-digit home runs for the second consecutive year, but also becoming the first Japanese to win the American League home run title, and becoming the first Japanese player to win the American League home run title for the second time in a row. He was named American League MVP. In 2024, he will be traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. I can’t keep an eye on his further activities in the future.
