New Blue Jays signing Gosuke Katoh releases hilarious introduction video

Jan 4 2022, 7:48 pm

New Toronto Blue Jays signing Gosuke Katoh is looking to add a little good news to the slog of the MLB offseason.

With the league’s lockout still ongoing, there hasn’t been a whole lot for baseball fans to  enjoy the last few months.

But after being announced as a minor-league addition to the Blue Jays roster, Katoh seems to have whipped up a quick introduction video that has some already calling him a fan favourite.

Using footage from an interview of Sportsnet’s Arash Madani with former popular Blue Jays infielder Muenori Kawasaki, Katoh superimposed his own face onto Kawasaki’s for a frankly ridiculous introduction to the Jays fandom.

Have a look at the hilarious video here:

Katoh also added a quick follow up interview to his video, answering a few frequently asked questions about himself.

With an invite to training camp, there’s no guarantee that the versatile Katoh will actually make his way onto the Blue Jays’ major league roster.

The 27-year-old utility infielder has yet to make his MLB debut after being taken in the second round by the New York Yankees of the MLB Draft back in 2013.

In 2021, Kato played 114 games for the AAA El Paso Chihuahuas, an affiliate of the San Diego Padres, with a .306/.388/.474 slash line.

But if early indications are anything, he’s doing enough following his signing to endear himself to the Blue Jays fanbase.
