[7/26/2017] Rakuten Eagles acquire Luis Cruz in cash trade

The Rakuten Eagles announced today that they reached an agreement to acquire thirty-three-year-old Luis Cruz from the Yomiuri Giants for cash. He was assigned the uniform number 67.

The Eagles held a press conference for Cruz today and he went 1-for-4 with an RBI in tonight’s game against the Softbank Hawks.

The Eagles were looking for some infield help after losing both Kazuya Fujita and Eigoro Mogi to injuries. The recent injury to Carlos Peguero also opened up a foreign player slot on their active roster.

[7/22/2017] Three homer game for Japhet Amador

Japhet Amador blasted three home runs during today’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at Kobo Park Miyagi.

  1. second inning, off Taisuke Yamaoka, one on and two out
  2. fourth inning, off Taisuke Yamaoka, one on and two out
  3. seventh inning, off Gonzalez Germen, none on and no out (lead-off batter)

Amador is the fourth player in the NPB to hit three homers in a game this season. He joined Takeshi Yamasaki (May 17, 2007 against Nippon Ham: HR, HR, 2B, HR) as the only players in Rakuten Eagles’ history to hit three homes in a game. Amador is the first in Rakuten history to accomplish the feat in consecutive trips to the plate.
