The Tigers are planning to offer Saiuchi an Ikusei contract after the twelve-team tryouts.

[10/10/2017] Hiroki Uemoto slowed by neck pain

Hiroki Uemoto developed pain in his neck from sleeping on it the wrong way and did not participate in general team practices at Koshien Stadium on October 9. He instead worked out indoors under a different schedule. His absence from the line-up against Chunichi likely had something to do with the neck pain.

[10/10/2017] Ryota Arai to retire after the season

The media learned on October 9 that thirty-four-year-old Ryota Arai is planning to retire after the season. A press conference is scheduled for tomorrow (October 11).

Arai began his professional career in 2006 with the Chunichi Dragons. He never played in more than forty-five games in a season while playing for the Dragons. He later had a chance to play alongside his older brother, Takahiro, when he was traded to the Hanshin Tigers for Keisuke Mizuta on December 24, 2010.

The Arai brothers became the first brothers in NPB history to record walk-off hits for the same team in the same year in 2011 (Ryota on April 19, 2010 and Takahiro on April 22, 2010). They also became the third brother combo to hit home runs in the same game on July 29, 2012.

[UPDATE 10/11 @ 2:51pm]

Arai went 0-for-2 (G6, F7) in the last regular season game of his career on October 10. Teammates tossed him into the air five times after the game.

Source: Daily Sports 10/11/2017

[UPDATE 10/12 @ 12:14am]

Arai held a press conference on October 11 and announced his decision to retire. He told the media he decided to retire because he started the year thinking that this would be his last chance to make it. He thought about a lot of things and ultimately felt this was the right time to retire.

The first person he sought advice from was his brother Takahiro. He talked to him in July. His brother’s advice: it is your life, you make the call.

[10/8/2017] Hanshin Tigers interested in Yuhei Nakaushiro

The Hanshin Tigers are interested in twenty-eight-year-old Yuhei Nakaushiro. The pitcher has spent the last two years in the United States. Upon returing to Japan last month, he told reporters it was not as simple as saying that he was going to play in the Majors next year and that he would be open to playing in Japan if there were interested teams.

The Tigers made some history when five of their relievers reached sixty appearances and six reached fifty. Nakaushiro would give the Tigers a little room to breath if the heavy workload from this year leads to problems next year.
