Yokohama Bay Stars looking into Bill Murphy and Giancarlo Alvarado

by on Dec.20, 2011 @ 10:18 am, under NPB

The Yokohama Bay Stars are looking into both former Chiba Lotte Marine Bill Murphy (30) and former Hiroshima Carp Giancarlo Alvarado (33).

The Bay Stars have a number of candidates for the starting rotation, like Daisuke Miura, Kentaro Takasaki, Yuki Kuniyoshi, Shigeru Kaga, and Kota Suda, but all of them are right-handed.  Murphy would give Yokohama a left-handed option.  As for Alvarado, he had a solid season this year and did particularly well against the Yomiuri Giants (6 G, 6 GS, 2-1, 2.80 ERA, 1.16 WHIP).
