Hard to believe, he pitches 3+ innings and
64 pitches
23 balls
39 pitches put into play
ONLY 2 pitches were swung at and missed

He said he had command of his slider and change up, but needed to strike out batters.
Good signing NY, 5yrs, $20 mil

Kei Igawa is terrible. I'm amazed the New York Yankees can't find someone better than him.

Once, while visiting ST in Okinawa, I got to take some BP against Igawa. I think it was 2002, but it might have been 2001. His fastball wasn't dazzling, his changeup he had a big tell on but his curveball was just a mystery to me. Once he figured that out I think he threw 20 straight to me and I fouled off only one of them. His Hanshin Tigers coaches were absolutely beaming about that, but my former manager, who's team was there to play the Tigers in an ST game, didn't seem to mind it at all. Of course, he did try to get a fastball past me on the second to last pitch which I nailed dead on a line right back at him. The last pitch was a curve ball which I missed by a foot.
