Hisanori Takahashi debuts with Pittsburgh.


Via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Pitcher Hisanori Takahashi debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, getting three outs on six pitches. An excerpt from his blog post yesterday:
チームに合流しましたニコニコ

早速、投げましたよグッド!

1イニングを投げて無失点に抑えました。
Takahashi was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels on Friday. Here's another picture of Takahashi in his new uniform, via his blog:



His blog is worth a read. He updates frequently and makes extensive use of emoticons. If he continues to pitch well I'd like to see Pittsburgh keep him for next year, but that isn't usually the case with their veteran pitchers or late-season additions.
