[3/8/2019] Daichi Takeyasu has some discomfort in his right shoulder

Daichi Takeyasu might not make the opening day Ichi-gun roster due to discomfort in his right shoulder. His condition does not appear to be serious, but the Orix Buffaloes do not want to rush Takeyasu and will most likely have him make his way back up to Ichi-gun after working out at Ni-gun.

[12/20/2018] Daichi Takeyasu heading to Orix as FA compensation package

The Orix Buffaloes and Hanshin Tigers announced that the Buffaloes selected twenty-four-year-old Daichi Takeyasu as part of their free agent compensation package for Yuki Nishi. The Tigers released the following comment from Takeyasu.

I’m surprised by this sudden development. The Tigers selected me in the draft even though I was hurt, so it pains me to leave like this, but I will refocus my efforts as a member of Orix and will do my best to become a pitcher that can make Orix fans happy.
