[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.

[12/13/2016] Yuhei Nakaushiro wants to play in the US again next year

Yuhei Nakaushiro is currently working out in Saitama. He has received offers from teams in Japan, but is planning to continue playing in the United States next year.

Nakaushiro was selected by the Chiba Lotte Marines during the second round of the 2011 draft. He spent four years in the Lotte organization before he was released in 2015. He was set to play for the Musashi Heat Bears in 2016, but was “discovered” by an MLB scout through a TV program about players that were released at the end of the season. He attended spring training with the Arizona Diamondbacks and then later signed a minor league deal. He made it as high as triple-A this year.
