    Interesting that Eri Yoshida is on this team, haven’t heard about her for a while.
    Has she played on the Samurai Japan teams previously?

    Thanks

      I think this will be her first time playing for a Samurai Japan team, assuming she makes it.

      She was making the headlines fairly consistently when she was bouncing back and forth between the US and Japan. But she’s been in Japan ever since the Na Koa Ikaika Maui team ceased operations in 2013 — she signed with the Ishikawa Million Stars in August 2013. Her stats haven’t been all that great since she started pitching in Japan full time: 1-6 with a 14.29 ERA and 2.87 WHIP in twenty-three games over 42.2 innings of work (does not include 2016 season).
