Thanks, Dave! Go Sox!
Hails from: Yokohama, Japan
Occupation: Baseball pitcher
Why He’s a Babe: When the 22 year-old Red Sox right-hander pitches, his eyes get wide and his lips press together in a line, and he kinda looks like an adorable Sanrio character. But though the MLB newbie has a sweet baby face, there’s nothing babyish about his stuff, including his 97 mph-fastball that first impressed MLB scouts. “Taz” may have just been sent down to the Sox’s double-A farm team, the Portland Sea Dogs, because he’s still wet behind the ears, but we predict it won’t be long before we see his cute mug crop up in the bigs.
