Yasuhiko Yabuta Pitch Selection?
Hello folks,

Can anyone please tell me what pitches Yasuhiko Yabuta throws and how fast?

I can't find any videos of him to get an idea of his pitches.

He mainly throws the straight, fork, and change up.

Is he mostly limited to a setup role? Or did he serve as a left handed reliever at one point, seeing that his innings have declined in the last few years?

Why would he be a left-handed reliever when he's right-handed?

How hard does he throw? And what is the speed on his fork and change?

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
