[12/21/2017] Randy Messenger set to earn FA option next year

The Hanshin Tigers would like Randy Messenger to return to their team beyond the 2018 season. He is set to earn his free agent option next year (he needs eighteen more days on the active roster) and will lose his foreign player status beginning in 2019. The last thing the Tigers want is for Messenger to leave their organization for another team in the NPB. They will most likely attempt to keep him in a Hanshin uniform by approaching him early and letting him know they want him to stay.
