The Yomiuri Giants announced today that they added Ikusei pitcher Kyosuke Takagi to their seventy-man roster. His uniform number will change from 028 to 57. His new contract will be worth an estimated 4.2 million yen.
In March 2016, Takagi was suspended for a year because he was caught gambling on baseball. The Giants gave him another chance by signing him to an Ikusei contract in March 2017.
