Hanshin Tigers interested in Scott Proctor as a possible closer

by on Oct.31, 2012 @ 9:15 am, under NPB

The Hanshin Tigers are currently looking into thirty-five-year-old Scott Proctor as a possible closer candidate for 2013.

This does not necessarily mean the Tigers are no longer interested in Ryota Igarashi.  They just want to make sure they are prepared in case negotiations with Igarashi fall through.  This means the Tigers may end up going with six foreign players on their seventy-man roster next season: Randy MessengerJason StandridgeRobert Zarate, Matt Murton, Brooks Conrad (good chance the team will sign him), and a fourth pitcher (a reliever that can also close).

There was also talk about moving Atsushi Nomi to the closer role, but that would also mean the starting rotation loses an arm.

The Tigers also looked in thirty-one-year-old Dennis Sarfate and thirty-five-year-old Jorge Sosa.  They do not plan to pursue Sarfate and may continue to keep tabs on Sosa, but probably will not sign him.  Source: Sanspo 10/31/2012
