[7/5/2016] Hanshin Tigers feel Kosuke Fukudome will still be able to contribute in 2017

The Hanshin Tigers would like thirty-nine-year-old Kosuke Fukudome to return next season. Assuming no significant injuries, they will most likely offer him an extension.

Through July 4, Fukudome led the Tigers in hits (tied, seventy-four), doubles (fourteen), batting average (.305), and on base percentage (.372).
