Yoshida played a big role as a center hitter in the World Baseball Classic (WBC). He led Japan to win by posting a new single tournament record of ’13 RBIs’. His good hitting feeling continued into the regular season.

Yoshida started in left field at No. 4 in the opening game on March 31. He was the first Japanese fielder to make his major league debut as the fourth hitter. In his first game, he had 2 hits, 1 RBI, 1 run and 1 walk.

4 hits in 13 at-bats, 3 RBIs, 4 runs scored and 2 pitches in the opening 3 consecutive games. Yoshida is showing that the best hitters in Nippon Professional Baseball work in the major leagues.

Senga Godai (30) of the New York Mets made his major league debut that day against the Miami Marlins. He gave up 3 hits and 1 run in 5⅓ innings and became the winning pitcher. He caught 8 strikeouts with a fastball that recorded a maximum speed of 159.3 km per hour and an average of 155.8 km and a “ghost forkball” that suddenly fell in front of the batter.

Unlike Yoshida, Senga did not participate in the WBC national team to focus on his team.

Last winter, Yoshida signed a five-year, $90 million contract, and Senga signed a five-year, $75 million contract. It is a skill recognized by Major League Baseball.
