According to a report by Sports Hochi, the Hanshin Tigers are exploring the overseas market for options at first base. There was talk at one point of moving Kosuke Fukudome to first base this year, but he expressed a desire to remain in the outfield and Tomoaki Kanemoto is planning to give him the chance to stay put. However, this leaves a hole at first base.
Sports Hochi is reporting that the Tigers might be looking into Dae-Ho Lee to see if there is any interest. They might also be open to resigning Mauro Gomez, if the price is right.
