It appears the Chunichi Dragons have signed 26-year-old INF Joel Guzman and will be making a formal announcement of the addition at some point in the near future. Guzman can play first, third, and the OF and is said to have more power than Tony Blanco.
Guzman started his MLB career when he signed on with the Los Angeles Dodgers as a non-drafted free agent in 2001; was traded to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2006; and then joined the Washington Nationals in 2009, before signing a minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles in 2010.
