Hanshin Tigers looking into 30-year-old Dustin Nippert

by on Sep.06, 2011 @ 3:33 pm, under NPB

The Hanshin Tigers are currently looking into 30-year-old pitcher Dustin Nippert as a possible back-up plan should Jason Standridge or Randy Messenger decide to return to the Majors.

The Tigers like Nippert because he "has a fastball that sits around 146-148km/h.  He's also tall and throws at an angle without his right shoulder flying open.  He's got a cutter, curve, and a two-seamer he can throw on the inside corner."
