Scouting Masahiro Tanaka


Ben Badler has a great post over at Baseball America scouting Masahiro Tanaka. He presents Gifs of Tanaka’s three best pitches — his fastball, slider and splitter — and talks to scouts about each of them.

We’ve spent so much time lately thinking about his contract and where he may end up playing that it’s nice to remember that he’s, you know, a pitcher.
