[11/20/2016] Yakult Swallows interested in Shingo Tatsumi

The Yakult Swallows are interested in Softbank senryokugai Shingo Tatsumi.

Tatsumi has spent most of his time pitching out of the bullpen at Ni-gun the last few years, but the Swallows believe he is still capable of being a starting pitcher, if given the opportunity. He showed a good fastball (topped out at 148km/h) during the twelve team tryouts on November 12. There would be little risk to giving him a chance to start.
