Where is Shogo Akiyama?

SDS

He still has to sign away his likeness to SDS. Much of the league signs wholesale but you can retain your likeness rights individually and that is often why players are not in the game.

Id even say, if SDS hasnt added him at this point, its because they cant.

What could this mean.... Is he coming? If so, wouldn't he already be here?

SDS

Well played, sir. Well played...

I can't believe i missed this yesterday, i will no doubt bump one of these threads every week until he is added or SDS gives us an answer, however its more likely monkeys will fly out of my [censored] than that to happen.

Yes and not sure why they even bothered scanning him if not intent on adding him to the game

Especially when he says " see you next week", then 9 days later ( more than a week - math) he's still not added.

They have some guy with a bunch of spider based tattoos now on the reds roster 😂😂

SDS

another update and still no starting CF for Reds

It's just a joke anymore lol. No reason to take this long to add a starting player. Especially when he even said see you next week like 2-3 weeks ago.

SDS

He posted his "I got scanned" photo on Twitter a long, long time ago. He's been very good on defense and his bat is starting to come around.

Please add him. Please.

Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) Tweeted:
See ya soon, Shogo! 👋🇯🇵 https://t.co/493YkPQJ3S https://twitter.com/Reds/status/1275636868898533378?s=20

SDS

Akiyama isn't in the game? And I thought the stadium speaker not saying Jeff McNeil's name was strange. Shogo's a young kid with promise, I assumed he'd be present, especially by now.

SDS

It should be important to SDS if they want to sell the Show to Japanese gamers. A Darvish vs Akiyama moment would probably sell a few thousand copies alone. The Japanese media goes crazy for these things.
