Hirano signed a two-year deal with Arizona after serving as the closer for the Orix Buffaloes in Japan the last five seasons. Hirano isn't overpowering (mid-to-low 90s fastball) but has good control and generates groundballs. Last year he had a 2.98 ERA with a 7.4 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 and 29 saves. However, he's 34 years old and has seen his strikeout rate decline each of the last three seasons. He'll likely work as a setup man but could challenge for the closer role.
