Japan’s right-handed Kohei Arihara’s decision is scheduled for Saturday by 5 pm (Eastern Standard Time) after he was there. Posted on November 26th.. By MLB-NPB Posting system, The 28-year-old starter who has a professional career at the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of Nippon Professional Baseball and all 30 major league clubs have a 30-day negotiation period.
If Arihara actually signs a major league club, the team pays the fighters a posting fee. If he does not sign, he will remain in the Fighters and will not be able to post again until the next offseason.
Arihara achieved an ERA of 3.46 in 20 Fighters games in 2020 and recorded 106 strikeouts in 1322/3 innings. He hit 161 batters in 1641/3 innings in 2019 when he recorded 2.46 ERA in 24 games.
According to a Sports Info Solutions scout report, Arihara throws both 4 and 2 seamers. They are in the late 90’s and his best strike pitch is his splitter. He also mixes sliders, cutters, change-ups and curved balls, using the latter three primarily for left-handers.
Which team can be interested in Arihara? Padres, whose post-season run was shortened due to pitching injuries and lack of depth, is one of Arihara’s finalists, according to a San Diego Union-Tribune report. According to Japanese media reports, Tribune states that the other two finalists are the Red Sox and the Rangers.
Padres is connected to Yu Darvish Trade rumorsAccording to MLB Network insider John Morroge, Arihara makes sense as another option for their rotation.
