Sports Hochi: This will probably be Aaron Guiel’s last season with Yakult

by on May.31, 2011 @ 4:57 pm, under NPB

Sports Hochi is reporting that this may end up being Aaron Guiel's last season with the Yakult Swallows due to two reasons: age and salary.  And while he was added to the active roster on the 23rd, it seems he'll be sent back down at soon as Tony Barnette is ready.

Guiel is in the last year of a 2-year contract worth a total 200M yen plus incentives.
