Southpaw Kazuhisa Ishii, whose contract details with the Los Angeles Dodgers were officially announced in Los Angeles on Friday, held what he called his “last” press conference Monday, a day after returning to Japan to wait for his visa.

The 28-year-old southpaw introduced himself as “Ishii who joined the Dodgers a few days ago.”

Ishii’s arrival at the Dodgers’ spring training in Florida, however, may be delayed as he waits for a visa from the U.S. government.
