[10/8/2017] Hanshin Tigers interested in Yuhei Nakaushiro

The Hanshin Tigers are interested in twenty-eight-year-old Yuhei Nakaushiro. The pitcher has spent the last two years in the United States. Upon returing to Japan last month, he told reporters it was not as simple as saying that he was going to play in the Majors next year and that he would be open to playing in Japan if there were interested teams.

The Tigers made some history when five of their relievers reached sixty appearances and six reached fifty. Nakaushiro would give the Tigers a little room to breath if the heavy workload from this year leads to problems next year.
