[7/25/2013] Hawks send Keisuke Katto to Buffaloes for Makoto Yoshino

by on Jul.25, 2013 @ 4:12 pm, under NPB

The Softbank Hawks and Orix Buffaloes agreed to a one-for-one trade that will see twenty-nine-year-old right-handed pitcher Keisuke Katto head to Orix for thirty-five-year-old left-handed pitcher Makoto Yoshino.

The Hawks wanted a left-handed reliever with experience and found it in Yoshino.  The Buffaloes wanted a reliever that could pitch at least one inning per outing and felt Katto could fill the role.
