The Rakuten Eagles are interested in twenty-seven-year-old O’Koyea Dickson. The two sides may be close to finalizing a contract. An announcement could be made within the next few days.
The Eagles already have six foreign players on their seventy-man roster (three position players, three pitchers). However, they wanted a right-handed bat because they struggled against left-handed pitching this season.
Dickson is currently recovering from surgery on his left shoulder (subluxation) and is not expected to be ready for spring camp.
