The Hanshin Tigers are showing interest in Fukuoka University outfielder, Yuhei Kai.  With Tomoaki Kanemoto in his 40s and Norihiro Akahoshi struggling with various injuries, the Tigers are looking for someone that can provide some help in the outfield.

Kai can run the 50m in under 6.5 seconds and can throw the ball 120 meters.

Scouts: There's no doubt he has a great arm.  He also has some pop in his bat and can hit the ball the other way.  He reminds me of Shinjo.
