    Shinnosuke Abe has decent chance of making it but since he play for the Y-Giants, who have no intention of let go a player via posting, it will take another few years before he gets a chance to get to the MLB.

      Abe's been sliding in performance for a while, so I'm not enthused about his prospects. The difficulty with Japanese catchers is the fact you've got to wait until they're nearly 30 (maybe older)--and if they're good, they've been subjected to a lot of the wear and tear of catching--and human beings can only tolerate so much of that kind of abuse and remain effective ballplayers.

        If Abe cannot satisfy you,there are no catchers in Jpn enough to go across Pacific Ocean in near future
