Right-hander Tomoyuki Sugano does not reach deal with an MLB team before deadline

Pitcher Tomoyuki Sugano did not come to an agreement on a contract with a major league team before his posting window expired and will return to Nippon Professional Baseball for 2021.

Sugano will be eligible to come to MLB as a free agent before the 2022 season. The bidding for his services started Dec. 8 and ran through 5 p.m. ET on Thursday.


A right-hander who turned 31 on Oct. 11, Sugano was 14-2 with a 1.97 ERA and three shutouts in 20 games last season, striking out 131 and walking 25 in 137 1/3 innings while allowing 97 hits. He is 101-49 with a 2.32 ERA over eight seasons in Japan.
