In an attempt to find a replacement for Norihiro Nakamura, the Rakuten Eagles are currently giving 28-year-old infielder Travis Garcia a tryout.

Garcia doesn't have any experience playing in the Majors, but did spent two years in the Mets farm system (2003 - 2004) before spending three years bouncing around in the independent leagues (2005 - 2008).  He also spent some time in the Mariners' organization in 2009.  In 2010, he played for the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs (IND).
