[10/11/2016] Softbank Hawks interested in Alfredo Despaigne

The Softbank Hawks are interested in thirty-year-old Alfredo Despaigne. Adding a power bat this winter is reportedly a top priority for the organization.

Despaigne finished out the second year of a two-year deal with Lotte this season. He has already told reporters that he would like to return to the Marines next year, however, the decision is not his to make. If Softbank makes a strong offer, they might be able to sway Cuban baseball officials to take their deal.
