Yamamoto Wears Dodgers’ Uniforms ··”Even if Otani went to another team, I would have chosen Dodgers.”

Japanese pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto (25) joined the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Yamamoto joined the Dodgers through a joining ceremony held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on Friday. The Dodgers also officially announced a 12-year contract with Yamamoto.

Yamamoto is the best pitcher to win the Sawamura Award as he has won four awards for the third consecutive year with multiple wins, ERA, strikeouts and winning percentage in the Japanese pro baseball league. He challenged to advance to the Major League through the posting system and signed a 325 million-dollar contract with the Dodgers for 12 years.월카지노

“The Dodgers are a team that wants to win. I got the impression that Otani wants to win in the future as well as the team that wants to win right now,” Yamamoto said after signing with the Dodgers following Shohei Ohtani. “The fact that Otani chose the Dodgers is not the only reason I chose this team. Even if Otani had joined another team, I would have chosen the Dodgers in the end.”

“Ohtani is not only the best player in Japan but also in the Major League. Being with him means a lot,” he said, expressing his feelings about playing in the same team as Ohtani, adding, “I think it’s just the beginning. I’ll try to become a better player.”
