The Hanshin Tigers are interested in 23-year-old, left-handed pitcher, Robert Zarate and have already offered him a contract worth 20M yen.
A number of other teams, including the Orix Buffaloes and Rakuten Eagles, have also expressed an interest in Zarate.
If the Tigers manage to sign Zarate, he'll start at Ni-gun before making his way to the Ichi-gun active roster.
Zarata stands at 191 centimeters and has a 150km/h+ fastball. He was a member of the 2010 Gunma Diamond Pegasus and managed a 1.23 ERA over 14.2 innings of work (10 games).
