Kitamura, a four-year starter for the Rainbows, confirmed the news via text on Sunday night. He expects to receieve the information on when and where he reports Monday morning.

He started 223 games at UH and played in the Cape Cod League last summer after hitting .311 as a junior.

His signing comes a day after UH failed to have a player selected in the MLB draft for the first time in 13 years.
