It appears as though Shingo Takatsu has signed a contract with the Sinon Bulls of the Chinese Professional Baseball League.  The Bulls are thinking of using Takatsu as a closer.

Based on the Nikkan Sports article, Takatsu will become the first player in the Meikyukai to play in the CPBL.

Takatsu left Japan for Tawain on Monday.  Seems his uniform number with the Bulls will be 22.

The Bulls will hold a press conference for Takatsu on Tuesday and are expecting about 40 members of the media to show up.
