[11/15/2016] Orix Buffaloes interested in Stefen Romero

The media learned on November 14 that the Orix Buffaloes areĀ interested in twenty-eight-year-oldĀ Stefen Romero. The Buffaloes are looking for right-handed bats and, if Yoshio Itoi ends up leaving through free agency, another outfield option. They are also looking into Dai-Kang Yoh. Even if they sign him, Romero would still fill a need: a bat that can hit in the middle of the order.
