[3/24/2017] Wladimir Balentien would like to return to the Majors

Wladimir Balentien had a productive World Baseball Classic: he went 16-for-26 with four home runs, twelve RBI, and a slash line of .615/.677/1.115. He told reporters after his arrival at Narita Airport today that, just like most other players, his goal was to play in the Majors. He also said that he kept his contract with Yakult to one year because there might be an opportunity to return to the MLB.
