Nationals Sign Maekawa
The Washington Nationals have signed former Buffaloes starter Katsuhiko Maekawa to a minor league contract in which he will be invited to spring training.

Maekawa [Minor League Baseball] went 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA in 7 starts in the Dominican Winter League. In a 10 year NPB career, Maekawa was 31-45 with a 5.26 ERA in 149 games.

Oh boy. I'd wish him luck if he weren't such a scumbag.

Well, Maekawa's visa has been denied by U.S. authorities. Manager, Manny Acta, thinks it's a result of Maekawa's hit and run accident. It doesn't look good for Maekawa's chances, which were already a long shot. It is probably likely that Maekawa will never report to camp and that the Nationals will leave it at that.

I was wondering if anyone has information regarding the status of Maekawa?


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.
