[12/22/2017] Shota Kurosawa to retire join Lotte staff

The Chiba Lotte Marines announced today that Shota Kurosawa will retire this year and become a member of their staff beginning in January 2018. Kurosawa decided to retire because he felt there was nothing more for him to accomplish as a player and he remained with Lotte because he wanted to give back to the organization that gave him a chance to play professionally.

Kurosawa started his professional career when the Marines selected him in the first round of the 2010 Ikusei draft. He made the seventy-man roster in 2013 and went on to pitch in fourteen Ichi-gun games between 2013 and 2017.
