      My guess is that they will start him at Ni-gun (minors) and then move him up to Ichi-gun.

      The Buffaloes are scheduled to throw a press conference for Maestri on Friday.

      Zunflaz, sorry I didn’t see your comment before I posted mine yesterday. Congratulations on the signing – my criticism was of Orix’s management, not of Alex’s chances.

      Best of luck – as long as it’s not against Lotte :)
