[5/31/2016] Hanshin Tigers looking for pitching help overseas

According to Sanspo, the Hanshin Tigers are currently checking the overseas market for bullpen help. They are looking at a number of players (possibly including twenty-nine-year-old former Carp Miguel Socolovich, thirty-two-year-old Edward Mujica, twenty-nine-year-old Al Alburquerque, and twenty-nine-year-old Pedro Beato) and are hoping to narrow their options down some time next month.

The Tigers currently have sixty-nine players on their seventy-man roster. They were hoping Marcos Mateo or Rafael Dolis would be able to win an everyday job in the bullpen, but both pitchers have struggled, due to a combination of performance issues and injuries.
