Keichi Yabu to Audition

» 20 October 2009 » In nichibei »

41 year-old Keichi Yabu is not calling it quits yet, and will try to continue his career in the states. He will work out in front of couple scouts in Arizona at the month’s end.

Yabu had a solid season coming off the scrapheap with the San Francisco Giants in the 2008, throwing a total of 68.0 innings and posting a 3.57ERA. Even though his 2009 season ended early pulling his right calf muscle at Fresno, he has been quoted as saying he’s continued to train and wants to prove that he can still be a contributing pitcher.

Will Yabu get another shot with a team and add a final page to his playing career?

    go for it! He missed his chance at being the first Asian 40-something in the majors b one day in 2008. Since then, Ken Takahashi and So Taguchi have beaten him. He can reclaim his spot as the oldest Asian big leaguer in 2010.
