The Hanshin Tigers announced today that hired Jeff Williams to be a US-based scout.

Williams - "I'm very happy and excited to be a part of the Tigers organization again.  I was thinking about trying to pitch for the Tigers one last time by going through rehab, but as mentioned earlier, I decided to call it quits and will do my best to help the team as a scout.  I begin [my new career] today.  I'm am extremely grateful for how well the Tigers think of me and for offering me this position as a US-based scout.  Moving forward, I'd like to do my absolute best to try and help the team recapture a championship."
