According to Nikkan Sports, the Hanshin Tigers are looking to sign 24-year-old former Yankee farmhand Marcos Vechionacci to an Ikusei deal.  The two sides are apparently close to an agreement and a formal announcement could be made soon.  The Tigers apparently like Vechionacci because he can play multiple infield positions and feel he might be able step in if Matt Murton or Craig Brazell go down with injuries.
