[11/22/2018] Yomiuri Giants reach agreement with Christian Villanueva

The Yomiuri Giants announced that they reached an agreement with twenty-seven-year-old Christian Villanueva. His registered name will be Villanueva and his uniform number 33.

I am honored to sign a contract with the Yomiuri Giants, a team with tradition. I have never been to Japan, but I have an image of Japanese players as disciplined and players that practice a lot. I am looking forward to playing in front of the large crowds at Tokyo Dome. With new teammates and a new environment, I will do my best to help the team win a pennant and championship.
