Hanshin Tigers: Standridge, Messenger leave Japan

by on Oct.20, 2010 @ 2:34 pm, under NPB

Randy Messenger and Jason Standridge both left Japan yesterday.

Messenger returned to the US from Osaka Airport and told reporters that he hoped to land a job in the Tigers' starting rotation next season (from the very start of the season) and would spend time during the off-season working on his fork (he has a mound at home).

Standridge left for Honolulu via Kansai Airport for a post-season vacation.  He'll then head home to Alabama.
