Posting Sugano, your face didn’t look bright.
The Yomiuri Giants applied for the posting system of right-handed ace Tomoyuki Sugano (31) to the Major League Secretariat on the 8th (Korean time). The posting will be announced immediately and the team will be able to negotiate with 30 major league teams by 7 a.m. on January 8th.
Sugano is the nephew of Yomiuri coach Tatsunori Hara. When he was nominated by another club in the 2012 rookie nomination, he refused and joined Yomiuri after a year of waiting. This year, he recorded 14 wins and 2 losses with a 1.97 ERA. He was the ace who won seven double-digit wins in eight years of professional baseball. He has a career record of 101 wins and 49 losses and a 2.32 ERA.
He shot a maximum speed of 157 kilometers and throws an average of 148 kilometers of four-seam. The 141 kilometer-long fork, slider, two-seam, cut pass ball, and others are also powerful and have excellent control. Major League media are evaluating him as a Masahiro Tanaka, who played for the New York Yankees, writing special articles. As seven clubs are showing interest, they are expected to make it to the big leagues without difficulty at high prices.
Nevertheless, he expressed his feelings of anticipation and concern. In an interview with Japanese media on Tuesday, he said, “There is a feeling of security and anxiety that we don’t know what will happen. I can’t get my hands on work. I’m still thinking about it. I want to make a choice without regret,” he said, showing his honest feelings. 안전놀이터
The desire to enter the Major League, which has been his lifelong dream, comes first, but he is concerned about how the local situation will change due to Corona 19. Sugano said, “There is no particular club I want to go to. I’m just interested in how it will go next season, rather than the team.
“Sports Nippon” explained that it is difficult to predict the transfer market, with the 2021 season uncertain due to the influence of Corona 19. Sugano said he hoped it would be decided by the end of the year. The newspaper predicted that the entry into ML would be a priority, but depending on the situation, the remaining Yomiuri Giants would remain as an option.
