2020 NPB imports

Here are the imported players on NPB rosters this season. Players with nine years of service time do not count against the limit of four import players on the active roster. The only imported player who is considered a rookie this season is SoftBank Hawks pitcher Carter Stewart Jr.

Players with triple-digit numbers are on non-roster developmental contracts and cannot be activated until signed to a regular contract and added to the 70-man roster. The links take you to each player’s NPB English page.
