Yoshinori Sato: Start #3 vs Hiroshima Carp (4/18/2009)

I thought Yoshinori Sato's last start was pretty solid and decided I'd breakdown his pitches. It's really too bad that he had to leave the game early due to a popped blister on his throwing hand.

The next WBC could turn out to be really interesting for Japan. A trio of Yu Darvish, Masahiro Tanaka, and Yoshinori would be pretty awesome.
