The Hanshin Tigers appear to have narrowed down their list of alternate first round picks to Masanori Fujihara out of Ristumeikan University.
Fujihara is a lefy hurler that tops out at 146km/h. He also throws a curve, slider, and a fork.
Scout: He's got speed and movement on his pitches. He also has a good pick-off move. He can also change speeds when necessary. I think he's a solid pitcher to have as an alternate first round pick. What makes him attractive? The fact that he can strike batters out.
A potential cause for concern: Fujihara was out with tightness in his left shoulder during the Spring League but is said to be fine now. He's currently 3-1 in four games with a 1.38 ERA in the Kansai Big 6 Fall League.
