CHICAGO — From his entertaining pitching style to his trips to Dunkin' Donuts, Chicago Cubs pitcher Shota Imanaga has moved with a purpose in his transition to the major leagues. And he is making it look easy at the moment. Relying on an unusual four-seam fastball, Imanaga is 5-0 with a 0.84 ERA for the contending Cubs. The left-hander also has 58 strikeouts and nine walks in 53 2/3 innings, thrusting himself into the early conversation for NL Rookie of the Year and the Cy Young Award.
