Hanshin Tigers showing interest in Randy Messenger

by on Nov.28, 2009 @ 6:39 am, under NPB

Randy Messenger is drawing some interest from the Hanshin Tigers.  And it seems Kenji Johjima might also have a say in whether or not the team ultimately goes after Messenger, since they were team mates in 2008 and 2009 (albeit only for a short period of time).

Messenger is a 28-year-old right-handed pitcher that has spent time with the Florida Marlins, San Francisco Giants, and Seattle Mariners.  All 173 of his appearances in the Majors have come in relief.
