Deanna's post about Tatsuya Oishi's effectiveness as a starter over his college career got me wondering about his Tokyo Big 6 stats.
I went back and grabbed what I could find and put together the following chart:
As a reliever
As a Starter
Note: this only includes stats from the Fall and Spring leagues and does not include stats from the rookie leagues or any of the tournaments he has played in.
These are some pretty gaudy numbers as a reliever. As a starter though... Yeah, not so great. But three games is a very small sample size. And with the type of stuff he has (and his age), I don't think it would really be fair to label him as a relief-only pitcher so soon. Personally, I'd love to see what he can do as a starter.
