According to Nikkan Sports, of the 80 pitches Yoshida threw, over 60 percent were knuckleballs.

...It seems Yoshida next start won't be until the 24th against the Edmonton Capitals. Until then, Yoshida will likely be used out of the pen. Incidentally, the 24th is also the same day that the baseball HoF will be officially added Yoshida's bat and uniform to their exhibit.
