Takumi Akiyama (秋 山 拓 巳) - 2011-12 Canberra Cavalry

Akiyama was another of the Cavalry's imports from the Hanshin Tigers in Japan for the 2011-12 season. He was the starting pitcher in 4 games for Canberra in limited playing time, due to the Japanese player's strict rules about returning to Japan by Christmas.

Akiyama has been called up by Hanshin for short stints during the last three NPB seasons, starting in 11 games between 2010-2012 for a 5-5 record.
