[1/12/2018] Yomiuri Giants are interested in Taylor Jungmann

The Yomiuri Giants are interested in twenty-eight-year-old pitcher Taylor Jungmann. The Giants could see Jungmann as someone that might be able to fill the hole left by the departure of Miles Mikolas. However, the team already has players like Scott Mathieson, Arquimedes Caminero, Casey McGehee, and Alex Guerrero to fill their four foreign player rosters slots on the active roster. Jungmann might be more about insurance in case someone gets hurt or under-performs.
