[8/23/2016] Hanshin Tigers exploring options for 2017

The media learned on August 22 that Hanshin Tigers’ official Eiichi Takano was in the United States checking on talent for about a week and returned to Japan on August 21. While in the US, he watched a handful of games and met with US-based scouts Andy Sheets and Jeff Williams.

The Tigers are expected to offer Randy Messenger an extension for 2017. Mauro Gomez, Nelson Perez, Matt Hague, Marcos Mateo, and Rafael Dolis are question marks and will be coming off one-year contracts.
