The latest team to send one of their top executives to see Yamamoto pitch will be the Cubs, whose president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer will attend the star right-hander's next start, reports Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Per USA Today, there were 29 MLB scouts at Senga's no-hitter last week.

Kodai Senga spoke about the possibility of the Mets signing Yamamoto, and said he's happy to help when it comes to recruiting.
"I have known him since he was 20 years old," Senga told the New York Post through an interpreter. "He’s been at the top level since he was very young, and I know he has a ton of talent. He is an amazing player.
"He’s an amazing pitcher all around. He has velocity, he can throw hard. He has good control and command. He can also throw off-speed that has a ton of break."
"He still has the rest of the season to get through, healthy hopefully, and the posting system," "I think once that goes through, the team might ask me and [Yamamoto] might ask me as well, and I would like to speak to both of them."
