Yamamoto Yoshinobu (25), a four-time Japanese professional baseball ace who will wear the LA Dodgers uniform, once again expressed his ambition.

Japanese media including “Sankei Sports” and “Nikkan Sports” reported Yamamoto’s press conference on Thursday. Yamamoto became a member of the Dodgers with a two-year, 320 million-dollar contract, the highest ever for a Major League pitcher.월카지노

He will be paid 1 million dollars more than Gerrit Cole, who signed a three-year, 324 million-dollar contract with the New York Yankees. Yamamoto also became the longest Major League pitcher to sign a 10-year contract with Cleveland in 1977. As such, Yamamoto is receiving a lot of attention and anticipation.

At a press conference held at a hotel in downtown Osaka, Japan, Yamamoto said, “I want to win first. I chose the team closest to that,” revealing the reason why he chose to sign a contract with the Dodgers, “I want to become a world champion. I want to become a pitcher who professes himself to his team and allows his team to become a World Series champion.”

“Thanks to my seven-year career with the Orix Buffaloes, I was able to grow and advance to the Major League. I am grateful to everyone who supported me,” he said. “I experienced tough times and won three times in the league,” he said, expressing his gratitude to his former team, Orix.

Yamamoto dominated the Japanese professional baseball league as a member of the Orix Buffaloes. So far this year, he has recorded 70 wins, 29 losses, 1 save, 32 holds and 922 strikeouts in 172 games and 897 innings in seven seasons in the Japanese professional baseball league. After ranking first in ERA in 2019 and No. 1 in strikeouts in 2020, Yamamoto has won four consecutive awards, including multiple wins, ERA, strikeouts and winning percentage, for three consecutive years from 2021 to this year.

This year, he had 16 wins, 6 losses, 1.21 ERA and 169 strikeouts in 164 innings in 23 games. He won the Sawamura Award for the third consecutive year. He also garnered attention in international competitions.

She won the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and the WBC Championship in March this year, helping her compete in international competitions. She is 178 centimeters tall, not that tall, but she uses cutters and curves on fastballs at speeds of up to 159 kilometers and high-speed folk balls in the late 140 kilometers. She is considered a highly commanding starting pitcher.

At the Dodgers joining press conference held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 28th, I would like to thank Orix, Dodgers officials, and those who provided a lot of support during the negotiations for the free agent. “I’m very excited to be able to wear the Dodger Blue uniform. I’m looking forward to throwing it at the Dodger Stadium,” he said.
