[10/9/2017] Chiba Lotte Marines: foreign player status

According to Daily Sports, the Chiba Lotte Marines are thinking about offering thirty-five-year-old Wily Mo Pena a contract for the 2018 season. They see him as an important part of their line-up.

The Marines feel twenty-eight-year-old Jimmy Paredes has a number of adjustments to make, but could still be an interesting option.

Thirty-eight-year-old Jason Standridge and twenty-six-year-old Kuan-Yu Chen are expected to return. The Marines are not planning to offer twenty-eight-year-old Matt Duffy and thirty-year-old Roel Santos contracts for the 2018 season.
