The Rakuten Eagles announced on December 26 that they reached an agreement with twenty-seven-year-old O’Koyea Dickson. He was assigned the uniform number 55.
Dickson had surgery on his left shoulder in October and is currently making his way back from the injury. The Eagles confirmed through a physical that he is making steady progress.
The Eagles will head into the 2018 season with seven foreign players (three pitchers, four position players).
