[12/16/2017] Yakult Swallows add Jordan Norberto Armengot

The Yakult Swallows announced on December 15 that they reached an agreement with thirty-one-year-old Jordan Norberto Armengot. He was assigned the uniform number 40.

Jordan Norberto Armengot’s full name was registered as Jordan Norberto when he played for the Chunichi Dragons. His full name will be changed to Jordan Armengot. His uniform name will change from Jordan to Armengot.

According to media reports, the two sides agreed to a one-year deal worth an estimated 650,000 US dollars plus incentives.

Note: Armengot had a run with Wladimir Balentin when he hit him with a pitch during a game on July 8, 2016. Balentien felt the HBP was on purpose and as he walked toward the mound, threw his helmet toward Armengot. Both benches cleared and in the end, Balentien was ejected from the game.
