Shohei Otani drafted by the Nippon Ham Fighters, he still wants to head to America

Just a quick update here on the status of Shohei Otani, who I have been following because the Dodgers are one of the rumored teams in the lead for his services. As they promised, the Nippon Ham Fighters have taken him in the first round of today’s NPB Draft, which is risky to say the least.

Has he changed his mind about Japan/America? According to him, not really.

It’s the latter tweet that concerns me, as there’s a lot of time between now and April.
