Taipei, Nov. 19 (CNA) Taiwanese baseball star Yoh Daikan (陽岱鋼), who plays for the Yomiuri Giants in the Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) said Monday that he will give his all to earn a spot in the starting lineup next season.

“It’s been tough this year,” Yoh said during a homecoming press event in Taipei after the end of his second season with the Giants.

The outfielder fractured his left hand in a game against Japan’s Chunichi Dragons in early April and remained on the injured list for a month and a half before returning to the team’s active roster.

But many times, Yoh was only available off the bench and did not see much action in the second half of the season. He eventually finished the 2018 season with a 0.245 batting average, 10 homeruns, and 37 RBIs in the 87 games he played for the Giants.    [FULL STORY]
