[9/4/2018] Yuki Nishi interested in the Majors

Twenty-seven-year-old v earned his domestic free agent option earlier this year in May. According to media reports posted earlier today, he asked the Orix Buffaloes about getting posted during the off-season, but was turned down. Assuming no injuries, Nishi should earn his international free agent option next year. Scouts from a number of MLB teams, including the Cubs, Dodgers, Angels, Diamondbacks, and Phillies, have been spotted at his starts. It is possible the Buffaloes might be willing to post him to avoid losing him as a domestic free agent this year, or an international free agent next year.
