Yomiuri Giants working on acquiring Rusty Ryal

by on Dec.10, 2010 @ 2:49 pm, under NPB

The Yomiuri Giants are currently looking into 27-year-old INF Rusty Ryal.  The Giants are interested in Ryal because he has some pop and can play 1B, 2B, 3B and the outfield.  An MLB.com article mentions that the Diamondbacks are "in the process of finalizing a deal to sell the rights of Rusty Ryal to a Japanese League team."

The Giants could announce a deal sometime next week.

Ryal was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2005, made his way up through the minor league system, and made his MLB debut on 8/10/2009.
