    He has a very unorthodox pitching motion.
    His pitching delivery has been called 'tornado-like.'
    His delivery leaves him vulnerable to being hit by come backers.
    His delivery also allows base runners a better chance at stealing a base.

    His ERA grew by .63 in his second season, 1.06 in his third season and .80 in his fourth season.
    Between the years of 1998-2001, he played for 5 different teams.

    In his rookie season with the Kinsetsu Buffaloes (of Japan), he stuck out 287 batters in 235 innings pitched.
    He is the first Japanese-born baseball player to appear in the Majors.
    He put down Jeff Conine after their first meeting, which featured Jeff striking out three times swinging.
    He went 13-6, with an ERA of 2.54, as a rookie in the Majors.
    He is one of the highest paid pitchers in baseball.
    His splitter has been called 'devastating.'
    He is the fourth player in Major League history to throw a no-hitter in both the American League and National League (joining Cy Young, Jim Bunning and Nolan Ryan).
