The Softbank Hawks are interested in thirty-two-year-old Cuban Yurisbel Gracial. A Softbank official is currently in Cuba scouting the infielder. The Hawks most likely see Gracial as both injury insurance and competition to keep other players motivated.
The Hawks already have three of their four foreign player slots filled with Alfredo Despaigne, Dennis Sarfate, and Rick van den Hurk. Livan Moinelo could get the last spot, with Robert Suarez also a possibility.0 Comments
