Hiroshima Carp waiting on reply from Bryan Bullington

by on Nov.21, 2010 @ 11:54 am, under NPB

According to Nikkan Sports, the Hiroshima Carp have filed a request to speak to 30-year-old right-handed pitcher Bryan Bullington and are currently waiting for a reply.  Bullington was recently DFA'd and a report in the Madison Courier on 11/15 does mention the possibility of him heading to Japan.

Bullington was drafted by the Pirates in the 2002 draft (1st pick, 1st round) and was DFA'd in 2008.  He then spent the next couple of seasons bouncing between the Indians (parts of 2008), Blue Jays (2009), and Royals (2010).

If Bullington joins the Carp, he'll become just the 4th foreign player in NPB history to play in the NPB and also be a first pick in a draft.

      I can confirm that those are the other three.

      I think this would make for a nice trivia question.
