best video I've seen of him so far.

Looks like he can't command his fastball much above ~93. Nice little slurve, can't command the changeup either but he doesn't really need to when it's that dirty. Also I love that Japanese power pitchers have that 69mph curveball in their back pocket. He threw it for strikes quite a few times there (2:30, 3:20, 3:50), which is just unfair coming off of the other stuff.
