Already viewed as one of the top high school pitchers in the country, Sato pitched well in the regional Miyagi Tournament that summer, throwing 226 pitches in fifteen shutout innings in the finals against rival Tohoku High School on 31 July in what ended in a scoreless tie (as per tournament regulations). He started the rematch that ensued the next day (1 August), throwing 148 pitches while holding Tohoku High to two runs in a 6–2 complete game win and leading the school to a third straight appearance in a national tournament.

Sato took the mound against Chiben Gakuen Wakayama Senior High School in the first round of the 89th National High School Baseball Championship that followed on 9 August, holding the team to just two runs while striking out 17 in a 4–2 complete game win. While he gave up a home run to junior and noted cleanup hitter Masaki Sakaguchi (currently a third baseman for Tokai University) in the sixth inning, he threw a pitch that the radar gun at Koshien Stadium clocked at 154 km/h (96 mph) in Sakaguchi's next at-bat in the eighth, tying the highest speed ever recorded in the tournament (since the radar gun began being used in 1980) marked by current Yokohama BayStars right-hander Hayato Terahara as a senior for Nichinan Gakuen High School in 2001. He struck Sakaguchi out looking in that at-bat, throwing a total of 19 pitches clocked at 150 km/h (93 mph) or above in the same game.

In the fourth inning of the second-round game against Chiben Gakuen Senior High School (the Nara champions) on 15 August, Sato threw a pitch clocked at 155 km/h (96 mph), setting a new tournament record for pitch speed (as per official stadium radar gun readings). He gave up five runs in the very next inning, however, allowing eight hits and five walks in a 5–2 complete game loss. While he made three appearances in national tournaments during his three-year high school career, he never succeeded in getting past the second round.

Sato went on to earn a spot in the nigun team's starting rotation, going 8–5 with a 4.17 ERA in 15 appearances and striking out 71 in 77⅔ innings before being called up to the ichigun team for the first time in late August. He made his professional debut on 30 August, starting a game against the BayStars but giving up six runs (five earned) on six hits and lasting just 1⅔ innings (the Swallows came back to win the game 9–8).

Sato finished the year with a 2–1 record in five starts (six appearances), recording a 4.55 ERA while striking out 28 in 29⅔ innings. His eight wins with the nigun team also led the Eastern League.


Sato's four-seam fastball has exceptional velocity, usually sitting at 146 to 153 km/h (91 to 95 mph) and reaching 161 km/h (100 mph) with one pitch during the 2010 season. Sato complements the pitch with a solid slider at low-80s and an occasional forkball. Sato can be considered as a two-pitch pitcher and still has a problem in his control.


Sato pitched well in the 2009 pre-season, going 1–0 with one save with a 2.37 ERA in four appearances, and was considered one of the favorites for the Central League Most Valuable Rookie award going into the season. He threw a pitch clocked at 156 km/h (97 mph), his fastest since becoming a pro, in his third appearance against the Saitama Seibu Lions on 19 March.


In 2008, his rookie season, Sato was assigned to the Swallows' ichigun (Japanese equivalent of "major league") team for Spring training, but complained of pain in his left ankle in late February. While the condition was deemed minor and Sato was cleared to play in preseason games, he went 0–2 with a 13.50 ERA, allowing 14 hits in just six innings, and was sent down to the nigun team ("minor league" or "farm team") for the season opener. He focused on rehabbing his ankle, coming on in relief in a game against the Giants on 13 April and pitching one scoreless inning in his Eastern League debut.


Sendai Ikuei Gakuen High won the Tohoku Regional Tournament that fall, securing a berth in the 79th National High School Baseball Invitational Tournament that would be held in the spring of 2007. However, while Sato pitched well against Tokoha Gakuen Kikugawa High School in the first round (now as a senior) on 23 March, striking out 14 while allowing just two runs and clocking 150 km/h (93 mph), his team was held to just one run in a disappointing 2–1 loss and first-round exit (Tokoha Gakuen Kikugawa High went on to become the tournament champions).

Sato was one of the most highly touted players going into the 2007 NPB high school draft, attracting the attention of scouts for not only his fastball but also his hard slider and being dubbed one of the "High School Big Three" along with Osaka Tōin Senior High School slugger Sho Nakata and Narita High School right-hander Yuki Karakawa. The Sendai-based Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, Swallows, BayStars, Chunichi Dragons and Yomiuri Giants all selected Sato with their first-round picks, but the Swallows drew the winning straw, signing him to a base salary of 15 million yen, a signing bonus of 100 million yen and additional performance-based incentives and presenting him the uniform number 11 on 11 November.


Sato went on to enroll at Sendai Ikuei Gakuen High School in 2005. Though he failed to reach even 130 km/h (81 mph) when he entered high school and was initially made the backup third baseman, he was clocking 140 km/h (87 mph) by the fall of his first year (tenth grade) and began to draw local attention as a pitcher. He led the school to a berth in the 88th National High School Baseball Championship in the summer of his junior year (2006), going the distance while striking out 11 en route to a 5–1 win over Tokushima Commercial High School in the first round as the team's ace pitcher on 7 August. However, he allowed four runs on seven hits and five walks despite striking out 13 against Nihon University Yamagata Senior High School in the next round, ultimately being charged with the decision in a 6–3 loss on 13 August.
