h/t Carne Harris for the video link!
Looks pretty impressive. Has some nice life on his fastball up in the zone and shows a very good splitter in the video. Delivery is a little max effort but he's gotten by with it so far. Of course, this is a short sample and it's not enough to make a full scouting report, but it's fun to watch and it gives us an idea of what to expect.
Meanwhile Dave Kaplan tweets more info on Fujikawa that runs against common speculation...
Signing of Fujikawa not done to flip him. They like skill set + are trying to upgrade pitching staff. More moves coming.
Those moves are expected to focus on RF and 3B, according to Kaplan but the former seems more likely. I would think the Cubs wouldn't limit themselves to a RF'er with a strong CF market, but perhaps the Cubs have someone in mind.
