[6/13/2017] Hanshin Tigers exploring overseas market

The Hanshin Tigers are exploring the overseas market for some help.

According to Sanspo, the Tigers are primarily looking at options at first base. Possible candidates could include thirty-two-year-old Matt McBride, thirty-two-year-old Jim Adduci, and twenty-eight-year-old Will Middlebrooks. They are not in a rush to add another bat right away, but want to be prepared in case they need to sign someone before the July deadline.

Nikkan Sports posted a report that the Tigers are putting together a list of options at first base and the outfield. They may be keeping an eye on former NPB players, like thirty-seven-year-old Hector Luna, thirty-four-year-old Anderson Hernandez, and twenty-eight-year-old Rainel Rosario.
