Which means you shouldnt draft him until a year or 2 before he's likely to be posted. In short, I wouldnt draft him now unless you dont mind him taking up a spot on your minor league roster for about 4-5 years. Is Kosuke Fukudome available? I think he's better than Aoki (think Hideki Matsui) and quite possibly may come to MLB next year. Or, you could take a chance on one of the elite or semi-elite pitchers that may be coming over next year, like Koji Uehara (almost definitely coming), Kenshin Kawakami (good possibility), Hiroki Kuroda (maybe), or Kazumi Saitoh (maybe). There's also the closer Hitoki Iwase who might jump over.
