Takahiro Matsuba: Did You Know


Matsuba did not sign during his first salary meeting with the Orix Buffaloes after the 2017 season because he wanted the front office to place greater importance in his innings of work (career high 133.1 innings) when considering his salary for the 2018 season. The two sides reached an agreement during his second salary meeting on December 18 (36.5 million yen, no change from this season). Matsuba may have managed to avoid a pay cut.
