[11/18/2016] Hanshin Tigers interested in Eric Campbell

According to report by Daily Sports, the Hanshin Tigers are talking to twenty-nine-year-old infielder Eric Campbell. They shifted their focus to Campbell after they decided to give up on Casey McGehee.

The Tigers have been looking for a bat that can play third base because they want to keep first base open in the event they also sign Yoshio Itoi and want to move Kosuke Fukudome to a less taxing position like first.
