Shintaro Fujinami’s debut

The Tigers’ No. 1 draft pick Shintaro Fujinami made his NPB debut today … and because it’s the Tigers he took the loss in a 0-2 defeat against the Swallows.

Still there were bright spots in his performance. I wasn’t able to watch the game, but his pitching line looks promising. 6IP, 3H, 7K, 4BB, 2R (1 earned). It’s just too bad the Tigers’ offense went cold after the opening day assault. No runs in two days. It’s going to be a long, long season…

This is a video of Fujinami’s start. Notice the tag “Golden Rookie” in the top left of the screen. High expectations.
