November 18, 2019
Tsutsugo's signing period for MLB clubs began Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
ANALYSIS
MLB teams will have until 5:00 pm ET on Dec. 19 to reach an agreement with Tsutsugo, with his former NPB club, Yokohama, receiving compensation as part of the deal. Tsutsugo is certainly still in his prime, as he'll turn 28 later in November, though his ability to translate his success in Japan to the United States remains to be seen. He owns a strong .285/.382/.528 slash line over 10 NPB seasons, but he offers little on the defensive side of the ball.

Japanese Prospects: 2016 Top-10 Rankings
February 4, 2016
Patrick Newman reveals RotoWire's top-10 prospects currently playing in Japan, including one player with the talent to usurp Yu Darvish as the best pitcher to make the move across the Pacific.
2016 Fantasy Outlook
After spending a couple years on the horizon, Tsutsugoh broke out in 2014 after transitioning to the outfield, and hasn't looked back. He followed up a solid .300/.373/.529 with a better .317/.400/.522 line in 2015, improving his contact skills and his ability to drive the ball. Tsutsugoh has realistic 40 homer upside (in Japan), and has MLB aspirations dating back to his high school days.
