[Sports Center/Comprehensive Report] The Japanese-American player Jordan Yamamoto, who set a crazy record in his rookie season, joined the Dodgers, known as the "Pitcher Regeneration Factory", with a minor league contract in the offseason, striving for a comeback.

The 26-year-old Yamamoto Jordan was selected by the Brewers in the 12th round of the 2014 draft and was sent to the Marlins in 2018 due to the Christian Yelich trade.

The following year ushered in the first major league debut, broke the century-old record in the first two games, became the second pitcher in modern baseball since 1900 to win the first three starts of his career, and knocked out seven or fewer hits. The other was Wayne Simpson in 1970.

At the end of the season, he had a record of 4 wins and 5 losses, with an ERA of 4.46.

Next, Yamamoto Jordan's skill plummeted. In the shrinking season of 2020, he pitched 11.1 innings, with an ERA of 18.26, and 8 home runs out of 27 hits.

In 2021, he was traded to the Mets. He only played 2 games (1 start), with 1 win and 1 loss, an ERA of 4.05 and a high WHIP rate of 1.8.

He pitched in the minor leagues all year last season.

Yamamoto Jordan expressed his excitement about joining the Dodgers on Twitter after signing the minor league contract. Player transformation has a high reputation, and Yamamoto Jordan also hopes to have the opportunity to restore his skills.
