Nippon Ham Fighters: Terrmel Sledge, Micheal Nakamura

by on Dec.02, 2011 @ 2:16 pm, under NPB

Nikkan Sports is reporting that the Nippon Ham Fighters are looking into both Terrmel Sledge (34) and Micheal Nakamura (35).  Both players started their NPB careers with the Fighters and are still fairly popular with the fan base.

If the Fighters sign Sledge, he could be used as a DH/1B and could bat fifth behind Yoshio Itoi (third) and Sho Nakata (fourth).  As for Micheal, he would give the Fighters another option out of the bullpen (could help replace Masanori Hayashi and Kazumasa Kikuchi).
