I hope Sasaki Roki heals quickly and stays healthy, he is a great pitcher, with such a bright future. If he wants to, I hope he goes to MLB next year and chooses a team other than the Dodgers, Angels, or a New York or Texas team.

This story fails to mention how often he has been injured or has failed to complete a full season. Scouts have to be a little weary of that.

@stickman1760 All of what you written is point on and IF he arrives he will undergo many physicals. This guy has been on the radar for several years and the MLB national scouts are taking notes. Should there be any questioning regarding missed starts and the issues they will have a lot to do with salary negotiations. As far as going to the Dodgers there is a salary cap if they do decide to sign Roki they will have to off load some players if he commands a hefty salary. On another note one player doesn't win a WS its takes a team.

Usually they wait until AFTER they sign an MLB contract to go almost permanently on the DL.
