And the rotoworld blurb with a nice stats summary:
According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Hiroshima Carp are likely to post Kenta Maeda this winter.
It hasn't happened yet because Maeda is currently pitching for Team Japan in the WSBC's Premier 12 tournament. The right-hander has expressed interest in leaving Nippon Professional Baseball for Major League Baseball each of the last three offseasons, but Hiroshima was previously reluctant to give him away. Maeda, now 27 years old, registred a 2.09 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 175/41 K/BB ratio in 206 1/3 innings this past year in the Central League. He had a 2.60 ERA in 2014, a 2.10 ERA in 2013, and a 1.53 ERA in 2012.
Lastly, his B-Ref page, as I had not realized they did the Japanese leagues as well. Pretty nifty: http://www.baseball-reference.com/regis ... eda-001ken
