Hanshin Tigers going after 23-year-old lefty Robert Zarate

by on Oct.24, 2010 @ 11:12 pm, under Independent, NPB

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).

      I’m not exactly sure what happened, but half of his stats were actually wrong. I have since corrected the mistake.

      Zarate seems like a really interesting pick-up for the Tigers. It’ll be interesting to see how he does next year and whether or not he makes it to the regular roster.
