[5/22/2016] Seibu Lions interested in Felipe Paulino

The Seibu Lions are looking to bolster their pitching staff and are interested in thirty-two-year-old Felipe Paulino.

The Lions are currently without their ace, Takayuki Kishi. Andy Van Hekken has not lived up to their expectations so far. And with Tomomi Takahashi hurt, they have had to use Kazuhisa Makita as a reliever. Adding Paulino to the staff would give Seibu a few more options without having to rush younger/inexperienced arms like Shinsaburo Tawata and Isamu Sato.

[UPDATE @ 9:55am]

The Lions have looked at about eight pitchers and found a number of good candidates. Paulino may be at the top of their list.
