Yokohama Bay Stars: Could be the end of the line for Brett Harper

by on Sep.24, 2011 @ 6:46 am, under NPB

The Yokohama Bay Stars took Brett Harper off the active roster on Friday.  Harper also did not travel with the Ni-gun team to Toda.

Harper's playing time has slowly dwindled over the last few months.  And since 8/28, he was only being used as a DH.  The decision to take Harper off the active roster was made after both sides discussed the matter.

An unnamed club source told reporters, "He said he wasn't a pinch-hitter so it seems a contract for next season will be difficult."

The Bay Stars are expected to make an official announcement at some point in the near future.

UPDATE 7:48am - General coach Tetsuji Okamoto told reporters on Friday that the team would like to rely less on foreign players and more on younger players.
