The Japanese press got Sakamoto to say that "while Masahiro Tanaka's impending move to MLB is a good stimulus, I'm not at that level."
While Sakamoto isn't at Tanaka's level of stardom, he does rank highly in RotoWire's foreign player list. The Yomiuri shortstop is coming off a .311/.359/.456 performance in his age-23 season. Yomiuri doesn't recognize the posting system so if Sakamoto ever decides to make the jump, he'll have to wait until free agency.
