Royals Sign Hideo Nomo

Fun transaction today, as the Royals inked Hideo Nomo to a minor-league contract.  Nomo was the first Japanese player to make a major MLB impact, bursting on the scene in 1995 as a 26 year-old and winning Rookie of the Year.  He missed the '07 season due to surgery, and hasn't pitched in the bigs since '05.

Over a year ago, I attempted to compile a list of all Japanese players who'd come to the Majors.  I also included a spreadsheet ranking their contributions.  It needs some updating, but check it out.
