by on Jul.16, 2010 @ 10:00 pm, under NPB

The Buffaloes announced today that they will be giving 23-year-old right-hander Freddy Ballestas a tryout.  Ballestas spent 5 years in the Phillies organization between 2005 and 2009.  He then moved on to play for the Rio Grande Valley White Wings of the United Baseball League.

The Buffaloes already have 7 foreign players on the roster right now.

Incidentally, it seems Hyang-Nam Choi failed his tryout.
